This really is a valuable event on the calendar and one that has taught young and old drivers alike through the years. Please support the event as the club ran it at a loss in 2010 and cannot afford to do so again in 2011.

Sharkfest: Celebrating all 1502, 1602 and 2002 through E3, E6 and E9 into the E12, E21, E23, E24 and E28 BMWs

Club enthusiasts bring out your shark-nosed BMW from the 1970’s and 80’s. You can either fully participate in the driver training or simply enjoy the atmosphere in the company of like-minded enthusiasts with shark-nosed cars.

Those club members from all the regions that know of non-club members that would be interested please encourage them to attend we are aiming at as large and varied a contingent as possible for both the Driver Training and Sharkfest.

All road and race cars are welcome for both events!

Nah but what has happened in the past is you start the morning with a briefing, then get split up into groups and perform 4-5 'stations' around the track different driver training tests.

Then have lunch then in the afternoon they open the track up.

Its a good day

I can thoroughly recommend this to everybody too. I put the girlfriend through it last year too in her Golf GTI. She's a much better and more confident driver for it too.
