Ottawa British Car Day

Postby Peter McKercher » Sun Jul 13, 2008 1:58 pm

Although we have had a very wet season to date, weather for the Ottawa British Car Show could not have been better. Attendance at the event reflected the conditions as we had a record number of 200 cars - quite a respectable number, given that that the event is only in its 4th year.

Unfortunately Singers were not out in full force. However, where we lacked in quantity, we gained in quality and enthusiasm. Kenlis Pearce and his entourage were there with his beautifully restored 4AD. It was definitely a hit with the crowd. In its original green and tan it stood out like a jewel on the field.

Robert Moreau arrived sans auto due to a failed master cylinder which he was unable to obtain replacement parts for until next week. The problem was due to a minor engineering flaw that he will be rectifying.

His disappointment in not being there with his car was obvious. However an offer to tour the field in Kenlis' 4AD put a very large smile on his face.

Just one more memory of Ottawa British Car Day 2008. A lovely thank you card from Kenlis Pearce and Ellen Dennig. See you all at Stowe 2008.

British Car Day in Ottawa passed with no rain. Usually, no matter what the forecast, we get horizontal precipitation at 3:00 PM, as the field sits on a peninsula extending into the Ottawa River. It was an excellent show with a record attendance of 197 cars with some truly spectacular vehicles which this year over shadowed the plethora of MGBs. My car picked up 3rd place in Best of Show behind a Jag and a Healey.
