This year's Brits in the Park has been CANCELLED because of the COVID19 Pandemic. Oganizers are planning an even bigger event next year as a combination of both the 2020 and the 2021 event. Spitfire is the Car of the Year at this all British car show.  Hosted by the Victoria British Car Club, 2020 is the 26th year for this unique car show set in shaded Victoria Park in downtown Lindsay Ontario.  Aside from 17 classes of very interesting British cars, we are showcasing the Triumph Spitfire this year.  So if you own a Spitfire, come along and show it to friends and public as an example of a great British sports car.  Our show normally has about ten Spitfires on the field but it would be wonderful to see twenty or thirty this year.  So mark July 19th on your calendar and come to Brits-in-the-Park in Lindsay.  While you are at it, bring along a few friends with other British cars.

The field opens at 9:00 a.m.  Aside from the great cars, there will be live music in the park and a number of draw 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.

Sunday, 20British Car Day - CANCELLED8:00 am

The COVID-19 Pandemic has thrown everyone a curveball and regretfully the Toronto Triumph Club has made the difficult decision to cancel British Car Day scheduled for Sunday 20th September 2020.    This is not a step we have taken lightly and we’ve waited until the last possible moment to cancel but it is the only socially-responsible option during this virus crisis.  Given the current guidance of the health authorities we believe this is the right decision to take as an organization in order to ensure the health and safety of our sponsors, our vendors, our car show owners, our visitors, our volunteers and the local community.  

Please mark your calendars for Sunday 19th September 2021 for the 37th running of British Car Day.  We look forward to seeing you then but in the meantime stay safe!

Wednesday, 10Drive Your Triumph Day9:00 am

Rye Livingston, Activities Chairman, Triumph Travelers Sports Car Club contacted me to advise that once again he is encouraging Triumph Clubs from around the world, to celebrate Sir John Black’s Birthday on February 10th, the man who bought Standard/Triumph after WWII and built many of the Triumphs we enjoy today.   The concept is straightforward. On February 10th go for a drive in your Triumph, take a scenic drive on a country road or out to lunch, to the market, to work, where ever.   If it’s the middle of the winter where you live and your car is in hibernation, or in the middle of a restoration, take a photo of it anyway.
