Please read this update about this event sent to all clubs on April 4, 2020:
Possible Date Change to Brits-in-the-Park
All of our lives have been turned upside down by COVID-19. While there is a chance that Brits-in-the-Park will be affected, we continue to hope that the car show will proceed on July 19th as planned. By mid-July we will all need a friendly and interesting outing so please keep the date of July 19th open. If by chance Brits cannot be held on that date, we will notify you well in advance. Taking the “just in case” approach, we have the alternative date of Sunday, October 4th in the wings. So plan for a good show on July 19th but also mark October 4th as a back-stop. The show must go on – we all need some good fun.
Stay safe,

You are invited to Brits-in-the-Park on July 19th. Hosted by the Victoria British Car Club, this all British car show is set in Victoria Park, Lindsay. The field opens at 9:00 a.m. and the entry fee is $20. There are 17 classes of vehicles and awards are presented to first and second place in each class. Plus there are three special awards: President’s Choice, Queen’s Choice, and Mayor’s Choice. New this year, participants will choose one car to receive the Best in Show award. We will also be recognizing the Car of the Year which for 2020 is the Triumph Spitfire. Each Spitfire participant will be given a certificate of participation and one Spitfire will be chosen as the Car of the Year Champion.

Aside from the great cars, there will be live music in the park and a number of door prizes for lucky participants. As well, several British vendors are attending with everything from clothing and T-shirts, to books, to car parts, to baked goodies for sale. We are even planning on a display of fascinators for the ladies. A food truck is also invited to serve a variety of delicious and fun foods.

Some folks are coming on Saturday to enjoy the Kawartha Lakes the day before Brits. For these people, there will be a late afternoon car run. We will meet at 4:30 at the A&W on Kent Street West Lindsay (adjacent to Canadian Tire and Staples). After enjoying a burger and greeting everyone, we will take a scenic drive to Bobcaygeon for an ice cream at Kawartha Dairy. Leaving there we will make our way back to Lindsay before 8:00 p.m. Hope you can join us for this fun excursion. Coming the day before means no early morning drive and makes the whole weekend more fun and relaxed. There are two hotels: Ramada (705-328-1743) and Days Inn (705-328-0100). Best to book a room early.

While the live music, British vendors, food and beverage and car show awards all contribute to Brits, the park venue is really what makes this car show so special. The grass field and shade from the large trees gives Brits a relaxed picnic-type atmosphere. Old friends are met again and new friends are made. We encourage folks to add to the festive atmosphere by wearing some British sporting attire such as fascinators for the ladies, tweed for the gents, or some other unique creation of your own..

So mark Brits-in-the-Park on your calendar and make it a point of participating in the best all British car show in the Kawartha Lakes. If you wish more information, please contact us.

Knowing the number of expected participants greatly assists in planning the show. Let us know that you are attending Brits-in-the-Park and your name will be entered into a draw to win one of three prizes.
