Road Trip to BMW Nationals, April 2017
Sunday 9 April to Friday 14 April
Going to the BMW Nationals in Brisbane in April 2017?
Tired of simply driving up the main highway?
Then join us on a 5-day Road Trip to the Nationals!
Each day offers a choice of some of Eastern Australia’s best driving roads, or a relaxed cruise to the same overnight location where everyone can meet up.
The event is being run as a self-book, self-navigate and self-pace event. This makes it more flexible for you and is practical to organize with clubs from 3 states likely to take part in portions of the trip.
In each overnight stop, a motel is arranged for the group to stay at. Each participant will contact the motels directly to make your booking and arrange payment. You are welcome to choose alternative accommodation in the town and meet up the next morning at the briefing if you prefer.
Meals are at your own cost and arrangements, with only two or three bookings made in advance. In practice, we will probably all eat together, at least for breakfast and dinner, but you can choose otherwise if you prefer.
There will be a briefing each morning which everyone should attend.
The primary route and the cruise alternative will be fully prepared with navigation instructions. Navigation will be very simple on most days and, wherever possible, points will be provided which you can enter into your car’s satnav to help as well. Some sections of the route are suitable for travelling in convoy. Of course you are free to choose the primary route some days and the cruise route on others.
In practice, people will likely form into informal groups comfortable to travel at similar speeds and the groups will meet up at food breaks and at the overnight locations. But you are free to stop for photos, detours, shopping, etc along the way if you wish.
The event is an official BMWCCV event and all the normal BMWCCV rules and driving etiquette apply, which includes observing all road rules including speed limits.
