2016 German Car Day – Sunday 20th March
Wow! We’re still reeling from German Car Day last Sunday! Approximately 240 vehicles participated throughout the day, with a wide range of interesting makes and models, old and new, being represented.
After receiving a short briefing in East Perth, the convoy set off on a 120 kilometer route down Kwinana Freeway, Mundijong Road and South Western Highway, before winding along the beautiful Del Park Road towards Dwellingup.
Upon arrival at Dwellingup Oval, participants enjoyed a range of German-esque cuisine and live entertainment by Bavarian-themed band Alpen Duo.
Did we mention the weather was also stupendous?
In the afternoon, Event Coordinator and MBCCWA President Trent CHELLINGWORTH took the mic, announcing the following raffle prize winners:
- First prize – Sanctuary Golf Resort weekend escape to Bunbury (valued at $425) – Duane BUCKENARA
- Second prize – Swissvax Australia detailing package (valued at $250) – Brett BAIRSTOW
- Third prize – Citro Bar & Restaurant voucher (valued at $100) – Stephen HIASLEY
- Fourth prize – MB Centre service voucher (valued at $100) – Glenda BERRY
All of the winners coincidentally drove Bayerische Motoren Werke vehicles,but rest assured that no bribe money was taken from them!
