Established in 2001 as a multi-marque car club, the Niagara British Car Club (NBCC) presently has close to 90 members, representing a wide variety of British automobiles. The club members possess over a 100 vehicles including MGs, Triumphs, Austin-Healeys, TVRs, Jaguars, Lotus, Morgans, Rolls Royces…to mention a few.
The NBCC is an extremely active club with monthly meetings; at least one scheduled driving activity in the spring-summer-and fall months, as well as several less formal get-togethers throughout the year. We attempt to live up to our club motto of “keeping British cars alive… and well.”
The August 18 to 20th week-end driving event scheduled for the Collingwood-Creemore area is the club’s first “long-distance” run. Fifty NBCC members are driving or trailering about 25 British cars from the Niagara Region to Collingwood to enjoy a beautiful drive on Saturday, August 19. Joined by members of the local Georgian Bay British Car Club, the drive will begin Saturday morning in the Craigleith area, running through back roads to the Town of Creemore, where we plan to visit the Farmers Market and other local businesses. From Creemore the two car clubs will continue their drive through the Beaver Valley to Thornbury where we will break for lunch. Following lunch the drive will follow along the top of the Niagara Escarpment, past the Scenic Caves and ending in Collingwood where members can enjoy the sights and shops of the town. A dinner later in the evening will complete the NBCC’s activities.
The NBCC members attending the event look forward to enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Collingwood-Creemore-Beaver Valley area and the sights and shops of the various villages and towns.
