My wife Debbie and I will be participating in our 4th running of the DC version of the America's British Reliability Run.
Due to safety concerns during the quarantine period, the 2020 DC ABRR will be a 1-day event, to be held Saturday, October 17th, 2020.
The registration fee has been dropped to $195.
This is a 1-day drive on public roads in Virginia. It is NOT a race or rally, but a fun, fairly leisurely drive for charity. The event will start and end in Middleburg, VA.
Social distancing will be observed, and meals will be provided by a professional chef who works for one of the organizers.
If you have a British car that qualifies for antique plates, you can join this event. (Sorry, but Elises, Exiges, Evoras and Esprit V8s will not qualify - I checked. Earlier Esprits will qualify.) Registration will open August 15, 2020. Participation is limited to 30 cars. First come, first served. The registration fee is $195, which covers one car entry, with one driver and one navigator/co-driver. Each team's goal is to raise money for the charity, Our Military Kids.
I'd love to have more Lotus participation! Elan, Europa, early Esprit owners - please consider joining a really good group of people on this drive! I personally pledge to contribute $100 to the first NoVA Lotus club member who registers another Lotus for the 2020 DC ABRR!
Last year, one participant auctioned off the use of THREE of his 'spare' British cars on BringATrailer. One lucky bidder used a different car each day - a 1950 Jaguar XK120 Lightweight, a 1956 Austin-Healey 100M, and a 1956 AC Ace. If that sounds good to you, be aware that he won with a bid of $7000 for the drives!
