    Attended the 14th Corbridge Classic with BMWCC NE Region on Sunday 5th July. Mainly 3 series of various types and four Z3s representing the group.

    The show is organised by MG Northumbria and last year the event raised £12,000 for local charities. This year there were 780 cars on show.

    BMW meet up was in Hexham for a 10 minute drive to the show ground.

    Two Z3M Coupes and a 2.8ltr with hard top (that,s me and HT is due to rear screen splitting earlier in the week).

    On the field we were joined by another (oh-so-common) Z3M Coupe.

    One of the M3 lads opened his bonnet to show off all the carbon fibre additions.

    Of course we had to put up a show as well.

    Not keen on the rear end styling. Do you think a spoiler would be a good addition?

    This 1958 Jaguar took my eye.

    Would be good to get a few more Z3s for next year. Will post details when they are issued. If you are interested please let me know.

    Looks like a quality day. Not a million miles away from me in Cumbria. Busy this year sadly but I'll make a note for next year's dates and pencil it in. Great photos and thanks for sharing.
