The British Car Festival features one of the finest displays of British cars and motorcycles in the USA. Where else could you experience Aston Martin, Austin, Austin-Healey, Bentley, Triumph, MG, Lotus, Morris, Morgan, Jaguar, Jensen Healey, Mini Cooper, Sunbeam, English Ford, Delorean, Metropolitan, Land Rover, Riley, Rolls Royce and TVR vehicles so close and personal? This is your chance to talk with the owners, make new friends and maybe...shop around for that British vehicle you've always dreamed of owning!
The Chicagoland MG Club has been a longtime sponsor of this event and participates in the car show along with providing show marshaling . Darryl Mayo and John Kearns are our representatives to the BCU.

The 4th Halloween Run will be held on Sunday October 28, in the North Suburbs. The Halloween Run does not include any competitive driving, there are no trick questions, and there will be no confusing instructions. Because this year is the 50th anniversary of the MGB, the theme will be 50. There will be no need for special tuning, no helmets are required, no penalties will be assessed, and encyclopedic knowledge about MG will not be a competitive advantage. However some questions related to the MGB and its anniversary may be included. It will be that simple! And the additional benefit? No need for arguments or fist fights with your co-driver or navigator.
We will meet at 10:00 AM at our house in Prospect Heights. The coffee will be ready at 10:00 AM and The Halloween Run starts at 11:00 AM. The Run is about 40 miles long and will take about 2 1/2 hours. We will finish at Emmett's Brewing Co. in Palatine.
