Motorsport


BMW Gmbh Motorsport is the division of BMW responsible for Motorsport-related activities. This includes racing for touring cars; sports cars; Formula-One and motorcycles.


The BMWDCSA had a successful end-of-year ‘Cruise The Bend’ day where club motorsport trophies were awarded and 2019 was previewed with particular reference to our first motorsport event at The Bend on May 5th.

The club has again planned a calendar of motorsport events for this year (see below) and will pay special attention to those wanting to try Motorsport for the first time.





The Club Motorsport Calendar

        • Regularity at Mallala - Feb 24
        • Regularity at Mallala - April 14
        • New Format Tryout* at The Bend - May 5
        • Supersprint at The Bend - June 16
        • Regularity at Mallala - July 21
        • Regularity at the Bend - Aug 18
        • Regularity at Mallala - Sept 8
        • Regularity at Mallala - Oct 27


NOTE:

Due to overwhelming positive feedback from our track-day on May 5th we can confirm the next similar Club Motorsport event on August 18th.  This event is for BMW vehicles only.  It will be run on the West Circuit at The Bend and again is a multi-club event run by The Bend organisation. We have a track-slot package that gives us Pit lane Garages and we have kept the same entry fee of $250 which includes timing transponders with 2 hours of track time.

* Notify Gary Young ( 0411074344 / Gary Young ) as soon as possible about participation on August 18th as places will fill quickly - already we have 15 of the 30 spots available taken. 

                                                                                                           


At The Bend we will use The West Track comprising corners 1 – 12 and as you can see includes the long straight in front of the Hotel/Pits/Control tower.

See The Bend  website for further information about The Bend Motorsport Park.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Entry to REGULARITY run by Tracktime Motorsport and SUPERSPRINT run by Marque Sports Car Assoc. is directly through these organisations.  However please note that BMWDCSA will soon be affiliated with MSCA and so the entry fee to their event at The Bend on June 16 will be at a discounted members’ price.
