Event DetailsBritish Car DayŽ is hosted annually by the Toronto Triumph Club, on the third Sunday of September at Bronte Provincial Park. Since its inaugural event in 1984, it has grown in leaps and bounds, and now draws more than 1,000 British cars and over 9,000 spectators, with room to grow even bigger. British Car DayŽ is open to vintage, classic and current British manufactured vehicles, including motorcycles. The event is the largest, one-day, all-British car event in North America, with visitors from Ontario, the northeast United States, the Maritime provinces, Quebec, and Manitoba, representing membership in 100 British car clubs. However, you do not need to be a member of a car club to participate. Over the years, we have even had visitors from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Texas, the UK, and New Zealand. Show cars gain access to the park via the north maintenance/service entrance, at the bend where Burloak Drive becomes Upper Middle Road, from 8:00am onwards. The spectator gates open at 9:00am and Participant's Choice & Best of Show judging begins in earnest. The judging wraps up at 1:00pm and the awards ceremony begins at 2:00pm.
Notable British car anniversaries in 2019 include Mini, Austin Healey 3000, Daimler SP250, Sunbeam Alpine Series 1 and Triumph Herald (60 years) and Ford Capri (50 years).
Every year one of the most popular destinations at British Car DayŽ is the Vendor Village area. Over 60 British-related vendors offer their new and used goods for sale, including car parts, complete cars, t-shirts, hats, tools, books, supplies, and so on. Many vendors offer end-of-season specials, so there are lots of bargains to be had and great food is available from the many food vendors on site.
