All British Day – Brisbane 2022
The weather turned on a great day for all that attended, with some reservations after rain on the preceding Friday. Over 640 vehicles were on the field and the spectators were well in attendance all day.
This year was the Lotus Club’s 70 year celebrations and they came with a larger than normal display. The turnout, variety and standard of vehicles on display just gets better each year which just makes the workload on our judges that much more difficult to pick the best.
Again we were rewarded with the last attendance by ‘OXFORD’ Series 1 Land Rover from the 1st Overland Expedition in 1955 from London to Singapore - an amazing part of history.
The 130 Defender named GrizzlyNBear now into a 5 year world trip also made a cameo. The ‘Field of Dreams’ was, again filled with an array of British thoroughbreds ... Jaguars, Bentleys, Aston Martins, Roll Royce, Daimlers were all in place. Numbers were well up on past years.
Once again ABD happened because of our team of organisers and volunteers, and those who bring your vehicles along for display...we know the amount of work that is put into preparing and getting them onto the field for the crowds to appreciate.
A special thanks to Chez and Ross Letten for their management of the judging and trophy presentation. ABD Brisbane will again make a significant donation to QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute to help in their ongoing research in the fight against cancer, infectious diseases and chronic disorders.
Volunteers from QMIR and Shannons were in attendance providing information on the services they provide. Thanks again to Shannons Insurance, 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. Thanks must be extended to Wayne Kirwan who picked up the microphone and became our revolving commentator, who not only helped with announcements and trophy presentation but interviewed many of the competitors...great job!
Until next year, Best of British!
