Carolina British Classics – XI, Columbia, SC
April 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This will be the 11th edition of our Carolina British Classic Car Show. Again it will be at The Historic Columbia Speedway participating with Tartan Day South. There will be events on Thursday, Friday and the CBC XI Car Show on Saturday.
The first event for all pre-registered participants begins on Thursday evening presented by Tartan Day South Festival. This is a free drop-in event. Go to www.tartandaydsouth.com for all TDS events.
Friday we will again have a “Ramble of the Tartans” presented by The Lake Murray Chamber of Commerce. This takes the form of a rally of British Classic Cars circling Lake Murray with informative stops at several historic locations along the way.
The drive will start and finish at the host Wingate Hotel 803-957-5000 at 108 Saluda Pointe Court, Lexington, SC. There will be a reception for show participants on Friday evening – details to be determined. There will be an opportunity for the assembled LBCs to convoy to the festival grounds and park as a group to take in a classic Celtic Concert.
This year there will again be a special “ladies” event called the ELEVENSES. It follows an old British custom of taking a mid-morning break for tea and scones. This will be a great chance for participants to socialize and get to know one another
Register early and join in with us for all the events.
