BMWCCGB Zedfest, 26 – 28 July 2013, Silverstone Circuit

Calling all zed enthusiasts…

Following the huge success of the inaugural BMWCCGB zedfest in 2012 I am pleased to announce that there will be another in 2013! The BMWCCGB are once again hosting a zed festival at the Silverstone circuit and it will be a feature event in the Silverstone Classic weekend. As last year, the BMW Car Club Zed Register is providing the unique opportunity to bring the whole zed family together for one weekend. We are endeavouring to gather as many zeds together as possible that will culminate in a parade lap of the circuit at approximately 6pm on Saturday 27th July. The BMWCCGB is also hosting an ///M-fest at the event so, alongside our zeds, it will be a fantastic spectacle!

The Silverstone Classic booking office has now opened and we have received a club discount code (C13225, link to booking page here) to enable zed owners displaying their cars with us on the special BMWCCGB area to receive buy one, get one free adult entrance tickets (ensure that you select one of the ‘CCM PACKAGE’ tickets). As well as the entrance tickets you’ll receive an infield display parking pass at the lowest possible purchase price up until March 31st. Note that you will need to nominate the car you will take, as the model and the registration number will be pre-printed onto the pass. Have these details available when you make your booking.

In addition to discounted entrance tickets our friends at zroadster.org have kindly agreed to organise accommodation discount for zedfest 2013 participants and coordinate a mass convoy to Silverstone. Details here. In addition, we can take advantage of an Indian buffet on the Saturday evening at each of the Holiday Inn Express hotels for £13.95 per person. We’ll have a dedicated room set aside for us and it should provide an excellent opportunity to catch up on the day’s events when we return to the hotels after the parade lap. I’m sure you’ll realise that in order to make this viable I need to know whether you’re going to stay at one of the nominated hotels and if you will use the buffet. Please let me know on this thread and I’ll coordinate with the organisers.

If you’re not going to stay at one of the hotels then you can still take advantage of the cruise to the circuit by meeting up at either Holiday Inn Express Milton Keynes or Northampton and grab a bite of breakfast before we leave. The cruises will leave Milton Keynes at 8am, go via Holiday Inn Express Northampton before departing for Silverstone at 8.30. Take a look at this video to whet your appetite.

I’ll keep this first post up to date with participant details and will advise of numbers registered from other forums too. Remember to keep an eye on this thread for updates of what to expect on the day. Keep your diary free for the last weekend in July 2013, it’s gonna be great!

- Update 20 July -

Due to a late change by the Silverstone Classic organisers we've had to revise the BMWCCGB layout. I've taken the opportunity to incorporate feedback received to date and the club has settled on the layout outlined in the diagram below.

Overall circuit plan (BMWCCGB between the numbers 8 and 12 on the diagram, note that the pink/purple area is tarmac, the blue area is grass):
Image

This is how we will arrange the BMWCCGB area and the supporting forums on the Saturday:
Image

We will marshal participant's cars on each of the days as follows:

Friday
Selected cars plus first come first served on the ‘BMW Display’ area
MPower cars in the MPower area
Alpina cars on the Alpina area
Fill up the All BMW (14) tarmac area
Everyone else on the grass (no specific forum areas)

Saturday as per the layout diagram (MPower zeds will locate with the other zeds on the grassed area)

Sunday
E30s plus selected cars on the ‘BMW Display’ area
MPower cars in the MPower area
Alpina cars on the Alpina area
Fill up the All BMW (14) tarmac area
Everyone else on the grass (no specific forum areas)

Not at this stage Pingu although I anticipate that it will be the usual broad spectrum usually associated with the classic.

UPDATE 15/02/13

Great news! I am now in a position to confirm that once again we have a parade lap of Silverstone. This year the lap will take place at approx. 6pm on Saturday 27th July and as such the main gathering for Zedfest will be on the same day.

I would also like to remind everyone that we have special accommodation rates organised and are organising a cruise from those hotels to Silverstone each day. In addition, we can take advantage of an Indian buffet on the Saturday evening at each of the Holiday Inn Express hotels for £13.95 per person. We’ll have a dedicated room set aside for us and it should provide an excellent opportunity to catch up on the day’s events when we return to the hotels after the parade lap. I’m sure you’ll realise that in order to make this viable I need to know whether you’re going to stay at one of the nominated hotels and if you will use the buffet. Please let me know on this thread and I’ll coordinate with the organisers.

If you’re not going to stay at one of the hotels then you can still take advantage of the cruise to the circuit by meeting up at either Holiday Inn Express Milton Keynes or Northampton and grab a bite of breakfast before we leave. The cruises will leave Milton Keynes at 8am, go via Holiday Inn Express Northampton before departing for Silverstone at 8.30.

Can you count me in to have to Indian Buffet on the Saturday night, just the one place please, as the other half doesn't like Indian food, so she said she would eat at the pub across the road from the hotel. I've already booked the Holiday Inn Express Northampton for the Fri & Sat night.

Cheers see you there. :thumb:

Was considering bringing Hamish over to this but work commitments and holiday planning is not going to permit that. :head:

Good luck to all for Zedfest and thanks to those organising what will undoubtedly be a terrific event. 8-)

Maybe Hamish and I will get next time...

Just booked my tickets for Saturday, should have stopped snowing by then :) Been for the last four years and had a great time. Will be up really early to avoid the queues to get in, watching the E-types overheat last year was very annoying and three years ago my other car broke down in the queue to get in, most embarrassing :oops:

No
Are you sure??

Here is what it says on their website when you enter the code:
You have entered the code for BMW Car Club Great Britain. Please note that your vehicle pass will only be valid for a vehicle registered with BMW Car Club Great Britain and with the registration number you enter on the following page.

And that's what they ask when you pay:
Please enter your car details for each CCM Package ticket selected.

Car 1 -3 Day Car Club, Registration Number: *

Car 1 -3 Day Car Club, Make: *

Car 1 -3 Day Car Club, Model: *


Is it complicated to register your car on the BMW Car Club??? And how much does it cost?

I should have done this earlier! :(

Have just booked for 3 days, looking forward to it.
Not sure about accommodation. Hotel deal seems pretty reasonable, but I'm keen on watching the music on Fri + Sat evening _and_ having a drink _and_ not losing my licence, so camping seems like a slightly better option. Which campsites are others using?

Looking forward to meeting those attending.

Jon.
