After 25 years, the show, traditionally held for one day on the Saturday of the May Victoria Day weekend, will expand for 2011 to include a welcoming banquet on Friday May 20, a “Classics for Sale” car corral as part of the show on May 21, and an All British Classic Car Run on Sunday, May 22, 2011.
“With more than 600 car entrants and 6,500 attending the show, many from out of town, we want to give these enthusiasts a wider range of things to do over the weekend, in addition to the feature Saturday car show at VanDusen,” said Patrick Stewart, co-chair of the event. “Many classic car owners enjoy driving the back roads with fellow enthusiasts, so we are happy to be working with the All British Run to offer a Vancouver-to-Whistler run starting the day after the show, on Sunday May 22, and hosted by Tourism Whistler.”
Since the car show is at full capacity in the VanDusen location, the organizers have finalized details to locate the car corral, which is for all marques, at the Canadian Blood Services parkade at 32nd and Oak Street. Owners are welcome to register all pre-1987 vehicles, with part of the proceeds from entry fees donated to Canadian Blood Services.
This year, the featured marques for the show are the Triumph TR6 and all pre-1987 Rovers. In the two-wheel class, all Triumph Bonneville motorcycles will be honoured.
