British Car Festival
September 10, 2000 -- 9:00 - 4:00

Sponsored by the British Car Union, a not-for-profit organization of a dozen Chicago area British car clubs, this Festival is the 13th annual gathering of British car enthusiasts. The 1998 British Car Festival had over 850 British cars of different models and years, over two thousand people, and over $6000 in gifts, including four round-trip tickets to England donated by British Airways. The Festival features one of the finest displays of British cars in the USA. Where else will you see classic British cars ranging in age from 1928 to present, Austin, Austin-Healey, Bentley, DeLorean, Triumph, MG, Lotus, Morris, Morgan, Jaguar, Jensen-Healey, Mini-Cooper, Sunbeam, Aston Martin, Daimler, Cortina, Land-Rover, Riley, Rolls-Royce, TVR and others you’ve only read about.

There will be registration and display of British Motorcycles.

This year’s Festival is September 10, 2000 . The location is Oakton Community College, in Des Plaines, Illinois, easily reached from major expressways. The forest preserve setting provides ample paved parking for both participants and spectators. Vendors and local marque clubs will be on hand to answer questions and provide information.
