We are happy to announce that after a hectic, unsure COVID year, the 34th annual CT MG Club’s British By The Sea Gathering is back for 2022 ! BBTS is a popular vote, fun event, with etched glass mugs being presented as awards. For 2022, we will have 32+ Classes, displayed on our 4 acre field. We want to encourage ALL British car, truck, and motorcycle owners and enthusiasts to attend and have an enjoyable time. Whether your vehicle is in pristine condition, or a daily driver, sparkling paint and chrome or with “Barn Fresh” patina, it deserves to
be part of the event and on the display field.
For this year, we have divided the Jaguar Marque into 4 separate Classes, one of which will be our Featured Marque Of The Year, the JAGUAR E-TYPE.
Registration Fees: $15 pre registration, $20 on the day of.
FREE Spectator Attendance.
Come down and enjoy the day mingling with other LBC owners, talk about cars, have a picnic, a glass of wine, and also take in all that the 240 acre Harkness Memorial State Park has to offer, such as the beach, the Mansion “Eolia”, and the Gardens. The CT MG Club donates a large amount of our proceeds from BBTS to the Park to purchase plants for the West Gardens, helping to restore the “Eolia” Gardens to their original grandeur as designed by Beatrix Farrand in 1919.
In addition, we provide “people power” over a few weekends to plant them.
We have selected a variety of quality food vendors to attend in order to satisfy any appetite, from coffee and pastry, hot dogs and hamburgers, lobster rolls, deli sandwiches and wood fired brick oven pizzas, to Ice Cream for dessert. You can also bring a picnic to enjoy and share “out of the boot” of your car. The expansive lawn areas offer ample room for the display vehicles, vendors, spectator parking and a spacious area for trailer parking.
The Rallye for a Cure invites car enthusiasts to participate in a fun-filled day for the entire family! Owners of vintage, classic, sports, and modern cars are all invited to join in the fun of this Game-Tour-Adventure (GTA) Rallye. Each Rallye team consists of a driver and a navigator in one car. During the drive, navigators will be asked to record information about the route in the style of a “scavenger hunt,” making the Rallye fun for all ages. The Rallye welcomes drivers and navigators of all experiences and family members of all ages as we navigate from our sponsor, New Country BMW in Hartford, to Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park for laps on the track! The $100 registration includes entry into the Rallye, breakfast courtesy of New Country BMW, lunch, and laps on the track at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. The day also includes an online auction and an Awards Ceremony.
FREE for Spectators!
