British Motoring Festival 2024

The 2024 British Motoring Festival will be held at Kings Edgehill School on College Road in Windsor, Nova Scotia on Saturday, July 13, 2024. There will be an evening reception on Friday, July 12, from 5:00PM to 7:00PM.

Saturday, July 13, is the Festival itself. This year the show field will celebrate the Triumph marque.  From its origins as an importer of bicycles (1887), a manufacturer of bicycles (1889), and a manufacturer of motorbikes (1902), Triumph produced its first car in 1923. Triumph cars were produced under a number of different owners until 1984. Triumph motorcycles continue to be manufactured today.

 

There will be food vendors on site from 8:00AM to 3:30PM.

 

The show field will be open to the public from 10:30AM to 3:30PM at a cost of $5.00 per person. Children 12 years and under are free. Proceeds from the public will be shared with the West Hants Ground Search and Rescue Team who will be supervising public parking. There is free parking for the public on site.

 

Organizers are planning workshops and events during the day including a display of the featured marque: Triumph.

There will also be Valve Cover Racing for 16 entrants. 

  • Should you not be one of the first 16 to register it is recommended you still bring your racer to the show, to join the grid if there are "no shows" or "dropouts". 
  • VCR weigh-ins 12:30PM-1:00PM, races from 1:00PM-2:30PM.

For participants showing British vehicles, the field will be open for parking from 8:00AM to 10:30AM. Show cars must be prepared to remain on site until show closing at 3:30PM.

  • For those that have to leave before the show ends at 3:30PM, any emergency movement of cars must be supervised by one of our field marshals.
  • Alternatively, cars that plan to leave prior to 3:30PM may be placed in a different area to facilitate safe exit.
