Gallery Galore! BMW Sommerfest 2022 at Donnington Park, UK

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
This weekend, the BMW Sommerfest (formally known as the National Festival) has been taking place at the Donnington Park Circuit (UK) which is a great location if you are a plane spotter like me since the runway is literally just over the field (East Midlands Airport) and also, there were several live races going on at the circuit itself which was brilliant to watch.

The event was organised by the BMW Car Club GB who did another fantastic job.

The estimate was over 700 cars in attendance at the event today (Sunday).

It was fantastic to meet so many like minded BMW enthusiasts and fellow Bimmerpost forum members at the event and to hear all the great stories (a couple captured below). Hello to you all once again!

Below are my photos from today.











































This owner is on his third M car (second V10) and has been very lucky with rod bearing issues!
















This E30 has a Corvette 5.7L engine it:






































Part 2 coming shortly!

Someone did not get the memo:












This E38 spent most of it's time in New Zealand but is now back in the UK with its owner.


















Stunning B7:
































What a stunning colour:




Lovely story here where the father sold this car in the mid-90's and the car went up to Scotland. Fast forward several years and the son is looking for an Alpina. And what comes up for sale? His father's Alpina from all those years ago!









































MINI is invited too:

Great assortment of pics! Thanks for sharing! I particularly loved the E9s. Also liked the Alpinas that we donít have in the USA like the B4.

Lovely pictures Mani59 and great to finally meet you.

Glad you liked the Z8. It was certainly attracting a lot of attention. Most people commented that they had never seen one in person.

Awesome photos, but there seems to be a car missing. Any chatter about the crashed M4 CSL?
