COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT - ALL BRITISH DAY
 

One of the ways the club shows its Community Involvemnet is with All British Day. All British Day is the club's charity event and the most recent one was held in September, 2019.

 

The 2015 amd 2016 events were very successful and in 2015, cheques for $5000 were presented to representatives of QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute and RACQ Careflight.

2019 All British Day

Our newly elected President, Peter May, may only have arrived back home  late on Friday 20th Sept but he was at All British Day on Sunday 22nd to be part of the celebrations of All British Day and to present the 
trophies to the winners. Click here for the list of trophy winners.

All British Day - Brisbane 2019
 

The rain teased us on Saturday and again on Sunday but did not arrive. Again, we had that wide variety of British classics that we had in past years but always something new turns up to surprise us. This year it was that magnificent polished aluminium 1925 Vauxhall but there were other little gems like the beautiful little red Austin 7.

The Healeys, Triumphs, MGs and Morgans were all there in great numbers. The Rovers and Land Rovers filled their space to capacity.

The ‘Field of Dreams’ was, again, filled with an array of British Thoroughbreds including the Rolls Royce Phantom V used for the Queen in Australia. Aston Martin numbers were up on past years and of course the McLaren was there again.

The display of a sectioned working Imp engine/transmission for a second year was another highlight of the day. It would be good if we could get more interesting displays like this.

The steam roller could not be there due to the dry weather and fire risk, but Ian did bring his truck. Numbers were on par with last year with just over 600 vehicles attending with motorcycle numbers increasing over past years.

 

We introduced a new category, ‘Best Off Road Vehicle’. The variety and high standard of vehicles increases each year which places more workload on our judges - and we never have enough of them.

 

Thanks again to Shannons, our sponsor, for their continuing support and thanks to you, the enthusiasts who prepared and displayed your vehicles that made the day the success that it was.

Congratulations to all our winners on the day.

Until next year,
Best of British.

Max Johnson
