British National Car Meet May 28-30 in Hot Springs!
The British National Car Meet is May 28-30 in Hot Springs! The event is a national gathering of British car enthusiasts. Dennis Gage of the show My Classic Car is set to be the Grand Marshall. For those wanting to get a look at the British cars while they are in town, at 9 a.m. on May 28 (Thursday) the cars will be on view for the public to see in Halls B & C of the Hot Springs Convention Center (134 Convention Boulevard) as part of the Crown Jewels Show. The event takes place at different venues including The Austin Hotel and Hot Springs Village. Keep a lookout for the British cars on the roads around town!
Tickets are required for many of the events so if you might be interested in attending them, be sure to register. On Saturday night, there will be a banquet at the Austin Hotel where Dennis Gage and Ted Schumacher (who used to race cars before he opened TS Imported Automotive in Ohio, which focuses on British cars) will discuss what it was like to be in the British car business in the 60s.
