Just Announced: Autocross at Kil Kare Raceway!
Doug Jennings has arranged for the local SCCA to set up our autocross at the Kil Kare Raceway.
So get to work on those Sunbeams and plan on having a lot of fun at this autocross!
Bob and Jean Webb met with the US Air Force Museum and arranged for a special reserved parking area for our cars at the museum. There are also several free tours of the museum available and even a special tour of the Air Force One planes that we can participate in.
The highlight of the United will be our car show combined with the annual Dayton British Car Show. There will be hundreds of British cars on display in a beautiful park with lots of shade trees. The show organizers are looking forward to us joining them – in fact the event T shirt will feature both an Alpine and a Tiger!
A large group of Canadian Sunbeam owners are planning on joining us at the United and other caravans of owners from around the USA are making plans to head to Dayton too.
The United registration form will is now available. Keep checking here and the TE/AE forum for updates.
