German Car Day, Perth 23 September 2012

This information comes from the Mercedes-Benz Car Club of Western Australia:

The 2012 German Car Day is on this year, taking it out of the traditional middle of winter date for the first year. The Mercedes-Benz Car Club has hosted this event for over a decade. It has seen strong turnouts of Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, BMW, Audi and Volkswagen cars, as well as examples of Borgward, NSU, Opel and even Messerschmitt – and German made models such as the Ford Focus XR5. The event has previously been held in York and Northam, but starting this year we’re making it a moving feast, with a different destination each year.

The event begins with meeting at the car park corner of Plain Street and Nelson Crescent in Perth, near the WACA at 9.30am, and from there a drive will set off to our secret destination. The convoy should reach the destination in about an hour and a half. There, cars will be parked by marque and on public display. There are plenty of places to eat nearby, or you’re welcome to bring a picnic lunch. And no, the destination will not be divulged until the day…

The cost is just $10 per car - regardless of how many people are on board - which includes a raffle ticket with some excellent prizes. Part proceeds will go to CanTeen.

You don’t have to be a club member to participate. And you don’t need a show-car, all German cars are welcome. Spread the word – the more the merrier...

When: Sunday, September 23

Where: Car park corner of Plain Street and Nelson Crescent in Perth, near the WACA - drive to secret destination
