Silverstone Classic – BMW Z-FEST

For the first time in months the weather held out for what was a spectacular day for the Silverstone Classic. A broad selection of car clubs honoured the event but as you might guess there was only one manufacture we were interested in!

Fortunately for us BMW dealer Specialist Cars arranged a convoy from one of their showrooms in Hertfordshire so what better way to arrive than with a Z8, a Z4M Roadster, a Z4 coupe, two Z1′s, A 1.9 Z3 and a Z4 sDrive35iS – oh and a E30 M3 Convertible thrown in for good measure!

The members of the z3mcoupe.com forum were out in force again. For us the bonkers Z3M’s stole the show and left us wondering why we sold our S45 last year!? Might need to re visit the idea again soon…

Highlight of the day had to be the lap around the circuit – we managed surprising pace for what we expected to be a fairly sedate cruise. So much so if you watch the video below you’ll see the Z4M Roadster in front of us loose the tail! Until the sharp reactions of the driver of course…

Once again a massive thank you to the BMW Car Club for another meticulously organised event and to Micheal Donovan and the hospitality of his team at Specialist Cars BMW for laying on breakfast for everyone involved in their convoy.
