British Mini car show set for Old Settlers Park
The 19th Annual Texas All British Car Day celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Mini with a weekend of automotive fun and beauty Sept. 26-27.
The event begins with a couple of rallies throughout Sept. 26, followed by an open car show on Sept. 27 at Old Settlers Park in Round Rock. There is no spectator fee.
The car owners will tour their cars through the streets of Round Rock in the "I'm Lost, I Think" rally on Sept. 26.
"The rally is an important tradition of the All British Car Day. It's our hope that the bystanders enjoy it as much as the drivers do," said Mark Barrington, TXABCD Chair.
The show will feature cars from Allard, Austin Healey, Bentley, Delorean, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lotus, Mini, MG, Morgan, Morris, Triumph, TVR, Rolls Royce, Rover and Sunbeam.
All funds from the car show will be donated to the Open Door Preschool. The show directors were able to donate a record amount of money to the preschool in 2008.
"The Texas All British Car Day is a great event that brings in drivers from across the country," said Round Rock Mayor Alan McGraw. "It's interesting to see how far the 'The Long and Winding Road' award winner drove to get to Round Rock."
