Saturday July 14, 2018
One of the highlights of Grand Prix Race Weekend in Schenley Park is British Car Day, sponsored by the Western Pennsylvania Triumph Association (WPTA). It features over 500 of England’s best sport and luxury automobiles. 2018 will mark the 38th year of this great event and the 31st year that it has taken place in conjunction with the PVGP in Schenley Park. During that time the WPTA has raised $151,000 for the Grand Prix charities!
Located in the middle of the golf course it is the anchor of our International Car Show. British Car Day is the largest annual British-only car show in Pennsylvania whose proceeds have always been contributed to charity. The WPTA’s British Car Day was first held at Hartwood Acres from 1981 to 1986. In joining the Grand Prix in 1987, an immediate synergy was evident. That relationship has continued to be a huge success with each event complimenting the other.
You must register directly with the Western Pennsylvania Triumph Association to participate in British Car Day. The fee is $30.00 for those that register before July 1 and include a British Car Day dash plaque. After that date all British Cars must register at the gate on Saturday morning, and the cost increases to $40.00. The WPTA requires specific car information for judging. Please pay through the WPTA website from the BCD Brochure and mail with a check to the WPTA – please do not use the PVGP entry form or online pay link.
British Car Day includes all cars of British manufacture, including but not limited to: Aston Martin, Austin, Austin-Healey, Bentley, Jaguar, Lotus, Land Rover, vintage Mini, MG, Morgan, Rolls Royce, Sunbeam, Triumph and TVR. For more details please contact the Western Pennsylvania Triumph Club directly: Dexter Stoltz
