My wife Debbie and I will be participating in our 4th running of the DC version of the America's British Reliability Run, from October 16th thru October 18th, 2020.
This is a 3-day drive on public roads in Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. It is NOT a race or rally, but a fun, fairly leisurely drive for charity. The event will be headquartered at the Marriott Courtyard Winchester Medical Center, and we will return to that hotel each night. I have had a great time doing this event - the cars are interesting, the people are friendly and amazing, and Winchester is surrounded by fun roads.
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 opened February 1st, 2020. Participation is limited to 50 cars. First come, first served. The registration fee is $595, which covers one car entry, with one driver and one navigator/co-driver. Each team's goal is to raise at least $1000 for the charity, Our Military Kids.
I'd love to have more Lotus participation! Elan, Europa, 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!
