Well Broccers, your car is still here, even if you're not the owner anymore!

I was there with my first Z3MC, a brilliant day out and yes it was world record for a group meeting of these iconic cars. Even the USA hadn't managed such a large group meeting up till then, though they may have done by now.
I met up with Phil T and three other owners at I think was the Woodall Services, after topping up with fuel we set off in convoy to Donnington. It is one of my abiding memories of the day, seeing driver's astonished looks as not one, but two etc Z3 M Coupes overtaking them line astern. Most people hadn't a clue what sort car they were.
I counted 47 coupes in one section of Donnington Services carpark which was a real sight to behold.

It was originally devised as way of supporting Rod Barrett & Hawthorns Motorsport and the Big Fish Racing team who each had a Z3 MC entered in the opening round the British GT Series on the 3rd April 2005.
We got to see the cars in the pits and have a chat with the drivers & mechanics. Tony you would have been in your element.

I have photos of the day including a panoramic view of the lines of Coupes, all 60 odd of them, that someone stitched together. I don't think it will ever be repeated unfortunately.
