45th Annual BASH:
Hellertown, PA

June 12 @ 9:00 am 3:00 pm

Keystone British Car Club

TEAE Region: Susquehanna

Sunbeam B*A*S*H Challenge (Bring a Sunbeam to Hellertown)

by Tiger Tom Ehrhart

Support your marque by attending this one-day event. Let’s amaze other LBC’s by showing our ROOTES roots!

The 45th annual BASH is a rally call for as many ROOTES/SUNBEAM vehicles as possible to converge on the Annual British Motorcar Gathering in Hellertown, PA. The British Motorcar Gathering features more than 200 vintage British sports cars on display at Hellertown’s Reservoir Park, just south of Bethlehem, in eastern Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. The annual show features finely restored MGs, Triumphs, Jaguars, Austin-Healeys, Morgans and Mini-Coopers from every mid-Atlantic state

Sunbeam and Rootes Group models will be showcased at this year’s British Motorcar Gathering at a special B*A*S*H event.

All Sunbeam/Rootes Group cars registered for the event will be parked as part of the special B*A*S*H display — a show within a show. A special section is being set aside just to commemorate us, the Rootes group. We’ll have the usual BASH hospitality and snacks at our special club section. The Susquehanna and surrounding TEAE regions have enough Rootes vehicles to impress those other LBC’s (Little British Cars) at this event. We just need to all meet at the same place and time. The British Motorcar Gathering is the place to celebrate. Plan now to support this challenge. You must register by May 31 or pay a penalty at the gate. Gates open at 9AM Register here:  British Motoring Gathering website. Bring on the Rapier’s, Hillman’s, Talbot’s, Avengers, Commers, Tigers and Alpines. Wouldn’t it be impressive to see the three Rt Hand drive Tigers in our region be together at one time?

Some of us plan to come the evening before the BASH and eat breakfast before proceeding to the show field as a group.

PLEASE REGISTER IN ADVANCE for the British Motorcar Gathering so organizers know how many B*A*S*H cars to expect. If you register a Sunbeam/Rootes Group car, you’ll automatically also be part of the B*A*S*H, and organizers will be alerted to expect you. The British Motorcar Gathering BASH ambassador is Bill Mounce ( fellow Alpine owner) [email protected] (610) 659-3307 BASH organizer: “Tiger Tom” Ehrhart [email protected] (717) 832-1116
