BMW M1 Club was voted “BMW Club of the Year 2019”
Dear Committee Members,
I am ever so pleased to tell you that the International Council of BMW Clubs during their annual board meeting in the USA have awarded us the prize of
“BMW Club of the Year 2019”.
Although I was aware of the fact that we were nominated, I did not know the result of the voting. Therefore I was somewhat taken by surprise when I was called upon to receive this distinction from Christoph Gonthard, manager of the BMW Group Classic Community and Brand Management Mini & Rolls Royce.
This Award was initiated in 2012 and honours extraordinary achievements which a Club with its engagement and strong support of its members may attain in the BMW- Club Community.
I would like to thank you all who contributed to this huge success which will definitely enhance our reputation in the BMW – Club Community worldwide.
We are, by the way, the first Type-Club which has received this special Award. Up till now it was only conferred on Country-Clubs such as: “BMW Car Club of America” and “BMW Car Club New Zealand”.
Attached you will find two photos which show the Award and the act of being handed over by Christoph Gonthard.
Wolfgang Melter. President BMW M1 Club e.V.
