British Car Club of Charleston’s 39th Annual British Car Day

British Car Club of Charleston’s 39th Annual British Car Day

The British Car Club of Charleston is pleased to announce the 39th annual British Car Day, on October 19, 2024, at Palmetto Islands County Park in historic Mt Pleasant, South Carolina.

The featured marque for this year’s British Car Day is Sunbeam, plus an added 60th-anniversary celebration for the Sunbeam Tiger, famously known as the Cobra killer. These special cars will make up the Spotlight Group. In total, 150 vintage and classic British cars are expected to fill the show field on Saturday. Well-known marques like MG, Triumph, Austin Healey, and Jaguar will share the field with rare examples of Alvis, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Lotus, Morgan, and more. This popular event draws exhibitors and spectators alike from around the southeast to enjoy not only British Car Day but also the famous fall weather of the Lowcountry.

For those looking for more to do, Friday, October 18th offers a drive and lunch through Francis Marion National Forest to Hopsewee Plantation off Highway 17, close to Georgetown, SC. This well-preserved plantation offers a rich history, architectural significance, and connections to prominent figures in American history. Tours of the house and cabins are available, and the onsite restaurant offers delicious examples of Lowcountry food.

The host hotel, Hyatt Place, at Town Center in Mt. Pleasant is the site of the Friday night reception for British Car Day. Join fellow exhibitors for a casual early evening before the Saturday show. Town Center offers up-scale shopping along with several dining options along with a trendy wine bar for additional entertainment.

British Car Day registration for all British marques and models will open in the Spring of 2024. Sunbeam and Tiger owners interested in being part of the special Spotlight Group can contact Rich Fritz, at ri**@br**********************.com, for additional information.
