    Interesting evening Supersprint with 43 Drivers setting times.  With a relatively small filed we were able to run 3 speed groups and everyone had 4 full runs and 1 final slightly reduced run.  Well done to Chris Kingsland who managed to complete 38 laps of the track, setting his best time of 1:16.995 on his 30th lap.  

    Flag Marshals are essential to run a Supersprint at Sydney Motorsport Park and our start was delayed then saved by two drivers Colin and Horry Sands who volunteered taking half the night each to fill the final Flag Marshal position.   

    Our thanks to Gary Pease, Jeff Male, Ian Perreau, Nick Hanania, Don and Mattaio Cuthbertson and the 7th place shared by Colin and Horry Sands.

    Hi all Club Members,

    We have a communications protocol when we need to contact BMW Group Australia (BMW GA) or BMW World. Each official BMW club has a club delegate who represents our club at BMW Clubs Australia (BMW CA) and from there onto BMW GA or BMW Clubs and / or Communication Management (BCCM) at BMW Classic in Germany.

    Your club delegate will pass any communications onto BMW via BMW Clubs Australia. If it is a question for BMW GA then your question is passed to the appropriate member of the BMW CA executive. BMW CA Executive will contact the correct person at BMW CA or BCCM. 

    If you are going to be visiting BMW World in Munich and would like to visit BMW Welt, Classic, Museum or Plant in Munich or Dinglofing then please let your Club Delegate know and he will pass you arrangements to BMW CA International Delegate who is in contact with BCCM and can arrange visits for you. Club members are welcomed and receive preferential treatment at BMW Welt. 

    We have received an invitation for us to visit BMW Motorrad Welt in Berlin for a special event later in September.

    Each car in our Supersprints must have an individual  car number on both sides for timing and track Marshal identification  to Motorsport Australia's schedule.  These digits must be able to be read as the car passes at up to 250kmph and are 230mm high in an appropriate font and a colour, black or white, to contrast the car's colour.  Drivers select the 2 or 3 digit car number that they would like and include it on  their event registration.  If the number selected is already allocated to another driver then we will email and suggest an alternative number. 

    Last year we stopped having a supply of car number digits for our cars at Supersprints.  We have now re-established our source of digits and will have stocks of both black and white 230mm high digits. Our vinyl digits are $3.00 each.  We also have vinyl backing sheets in both Black and White at $10 each so that you can make up your car numbers in a panel that can be used over again.   Bring cash or your credit card to the sign-on desk if you wish to purchase these digits.  I have been using a sick on panel for years and it works well.

    Under the Club’s Constitution and regulatory obligations as an Incorporated Club, the Club must conduct an Annual General Meeting (AGM) each and every year.

    December 7 is the 2022 AGM, and this year it is to be generously hosted by Col Crawford BMW at Brookvale.

    Col Crawford BMW
    489 Pittwater Road, Brookvale, NSW 2100

    As you are aware for those members who have participated in Social events, Motorsport (Supersprint, Driver Training and Motorkhana) events, they are organised and run by volunteers, mainly by those in the Club’s Committee along with a host of members who have kindly volunteered their time to assist the Club.

    The AGM is the opportunity for members to show their hands to assist the Club more formally by being part of the Club’s Committee.  The Committee consists of twelve members, five of whom are considered Executive members and the remaining seven members are part of the General Committee.

    From the Club’s constitution:

    “The duty of each Committee member to carry out their functions for the benefit, so far as practicable, of the Club and with due care and diligence. A matter or thing done or omitted to be done by a Committee member does not, if the matter or thing was done or omitted to be done in good faith for the purpose of exercising the Committee member’s functions under the Act, subject the Committee member so acting personally to any action, liability, claim or demand.”

    If you have the time, energy and ability to be part of the committee, now is your opportunity to put your hand up and make our Club more successful by nominating as a Committee member.  We need organised and energetic BMW enthusiasts who love to see the smiles on members faces when we conduct an event, be it a social event or a motorsport event.  From Dawn Drives to Weekend jaunts to some of New South Wales beautiful regional areas, challenging Supersprints pitted against each other or BMW Drivers Club Melbourne, driving Pheasant Wood circuit or Bathurst, all part of the fun being part of our Club.

    Executive Positions are:

    • President – Driving the direction of the Club (we already have one nomination)
    • Vice President – assisting the President with ideas and organizational and management skills
    • Treasurer – ensuring our financial position is solid and compliant (we already have one nomination)
    • Secretary –administration secretarial duties for meetings and other odd jobs (one nomination already)
    • Motorsport Director – all things motorsport liaising with ARDC,

    General Committee positions:

    • Social Director - we have one nomination
    • Membership Secretary – we have one nomination
    • IT and Web
    • Torque of the Town Editor
    • Dealer Liaison
    • Delegate to BMW Clubs Australia
    • Advertising?
    • Merchandise?

    The committee meets every 3rd Wednesday of the month to discuss the operations and administration of the Club.  The meetings of recent have been conducted by Microsoft Teams (virtual) however from time to time it is nice to have the face to face meetings.

    We are also looking for other volunteers on a less formal basis – so any expression of interest of a member’s time is appreciated.  (Of course we do not need to have this formalised at an AGM)

    So please come along, get yourself involved in your Club.

    You should review the Invitation to the AGM and the Member’s Agenda.  It is best to be able to have your say in person, so please try to come along to the AGM.

    Included in this email are two other documents, the Nomination Form for putting yourself forward for a committee position should you wish to contribute, and if you are not able to attend on December 7, a Proxy form, where you can nominate an existing committee member to be your proxy and have your vote counted or to transfer your vote to another member.

    You can email your nomination form and or Proxy Form to PRIOR TO MIDDAY DECEMBER 7, 2022.

    We look forward to your participation in the Club and at the Annual General Meeting.

    Hi drivers, 

    Following the Court decision on 13 July, we were very fortunate and privileged to be running our Supersprint at Wakefield Park.

    We started the day with a parade lap and photograph in memory of our Clerk of the Course Kim Hunter who lasses away in July. 

    60 drivers competed on the day starting with driver training familiarisation laps, lead by three of our Supersprint experts, for 15 drivers who were new to this circuit. We then ran three full sets of Supersprints in the morning and continued on in the afternoon with more sets of Supersprints until there were no drivers appearing on the starting grid.  The track was wet to start and that stopped those drivers on slicks but the track soon dried and it was a nice clear day with some drivers completing up to 50 laps. 

    The results for Round 5  and Points Table after the 5 rounds are published in Latest results  

    We have all been asked by Save Wakefield Park to sign the e-Petition to the Government requesting the reopening of Wakefield Park.  It appears that we succeeded in receiving more than 20,000 signatures and are now awaiting on the Government to act on saving Wakefield Park.
