THE CHAIR of the Terribly British Day organising committee, Paul Sutton says that more than 300 British vehicles are expected to be displayed at the 40th anniversary of the event.
“It is fitting that the display is being held at Weston Park, as this was the location of the first meeting of British made cars, in July 1975, when the Jaguar, Armstrong-Siddeley, Rolls-Royce, Austin Healey, and MG clubs with a total of 18 vehicles held a BBQ in the park,” Paul said.
“The event has grown over the years to where more than 300 vehicles are expected to be displayed.
“In recent years, the University of Canberra Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephen Parker, and his wife Rhianna, have been the special guests charged with nominating the best club display and the most desirable car and will be doing so again at the 2015 event.
Gates are open to the public at 10.00 until 3pm on December 6 and the public are admitted free of charge.
The Terribly British Day is organised by the Jaguar Drivers Club in association with the British car clubs of the Canberra region, and is supported by long term sponsors NRMA Veteran, Vintage and Classic Insurance and Shannons Insurance. The Council of ACT Motor clubs and Lennock Motors Jaguar, have also supported the display for a number of years.
