25th Annual British Car Week

May 22 - May 30

British Car Week

This year marks the 25th British Car Week, first initiated when Mr. Peter Egan published his classic story in his Side Glances column, titled “Seldom Seen Cars” in the March 1997 edition of Road & Track magazine. In his story, he shared his then-recent thoughts about reminiscing in the dentist’s chair with his mouth full of gauze. After all, what else is there to do? He was thinking about what has happened to all of the old cars he used to enjoy seeing on the roads in his local town. He thought about the times when he would regularly see classic marques such as Morgan, MG, Jaguar, Porsche, Triumph, and even the likes of an old Woodie Wagon on the streets of his community.

The above story is what inspired the creation of British Car Week. With the thought of having a target week for all British car owners to get their cars out of storage and get them prepped for the upcoming driving season. If all goes as planned, they would then take their cars out for a drive within their communities to enable others to enjoy them as they drive by. These classics are a sight to behold and appreciated whenever they are spotted driving by. It is no secret they are even rarer today than when Peter originally wrote his article twenty-five years ago. With so many rapid changes occurring within the automobile industry today, we can only hope that older model classic cars will continue to be permitted on the roads for many years to come.

Thanks to all of the enthusiastic owners of classic British cars, we continue to keep our hobby going. With 2020 now behind us, we can now have hope that 2021 will be a better year for all and that we will soon be rekindling our friendships with other British car enthusiasts at events.

So be sure to top-off your dashpots, and plan a drive during British Car Week 2021!
