Thanks for posting Gary.

The Z Register has 60 slots this year and we'll be going for a 'zed of zeds' line up again. When booking your tickets remember to ask for a z register pass if you want to be included :wink:

do you have to be a BMWCC member for either entrance to a 'club' area or for the Z layout?

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..

Seeing as no-one has answered this, in previous years you have needed to be a BMWCC member in order to display your car, so I would expect so.

I've been for 2 years now and displayed on our forum stand and not been a BMWCC member and I'm not so sure that any of our members were either ;) This space is around the edges though, not on the main car park ;)

Will be the same this year :) If you are around, please come and say hello and I'll keep an eye out for you guys.

I do hope that the organisers make a little more of this year's show as it's got huge potential.

If anyone's camping the night before feel free to drop me a pm, I'm getting a few together for a beer and bbq.

I will be at this one this year and would like to be included in the zregister area, no longer a BMWCC member though if this is going to matter?

If you'd like to display with the Z Register then you need be a BMWCCGB member and registered with the Z Register. Simplez :wink:

Just booked 2 display passes for the Sunday, it is still in the Z register section, and didn't need to take up a membership. :D
If you want to display on Saturday in Z register section however, you need to be a member.
