The venue for British Car Day© is Bronte Creek Provincial Park, conveniently located at the Burloak Drive exit off the Queen Elizabeth Way. The south entrance is for non-British cars & spectators, while the north entrance is reserved for British car exhibitors and vendors.
Show cars gain access to the park via the north maintenance/service entrance, at the bend where Burloak Drive becomes Upper Middle Road, from 8:00am onwards. The spectator gates open at 9:00am and Participant's Choice judging begins in earnest. The judging wraps up at 1:00pm and the awards ceremony begins around 2:00pm.
Entry fee to the park for spectators is $16 per car (or use your Parks Ontario season pass). There is no limit on the number of people in the car. Please pay using cash if possible. Car pool to split costs.
British Car Day is hosted annually by the Toronto Triumph Club, on the third Sunday of September. Since its inaugural event in 1984, it has grown in leaps and bounds, and now draws over 1,000 British cars and 8,000 spectators. The event is the largest, one-day, all-British car event in North America, with visitors from throughout the northeast United States, the Maritime provinces, Quebec, and Manitoba. We have even had visitors from Alberta, Texas, the UK, and New Zealand.
The spectator gates open at 10:00am and Participant's Choice judging begins in earnest. Last year, there were well over 1,000 vehicles, in 52 classes of cars, commercial vehicles, and motorcycles, running the whole range from Mini to Rolls-Royce, from Austin to Zephyr and everything in between. Many people bring their daily drivers, or projects-in-progress, just to line up with the many concours-class cars in their class. This is the opportunity everyone looks forward to, to chat, to scrutinize, and plan for next year. It's a car show and it's also a big end of season social event, and a great opportunity for some classic car photography!
