Hello everyone, and thank you Jon for sending out information about the Kastner Cup event.
 
We would be thrilled to have the Valley British Auto Club attend the Kastner Cup event. The race weekend at Sonoma Raceway is April 18-21 (my prior email had an incorrect date, apologies). The all-Triumph Kastner Cup race will be run on Saturday, April 20th as part of the larger Sportscar Vintage Racing Association’s (SVRA) Sonoma Speed Tour weekend.
 
SVRA has a car show built into the schedule that day as well, with on-track parade laps for show cars. The direct link to the car show registration and FAQs is found here: SPEED TOUR and also below in the email that Jon sent out this morning.
 
Saturday, April 20, 2024 Cars and Caffeine Car Show
Be a part of the Sonoma Speed Tour weekend held at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, California. The car show is open to all classic, vintage, exotic, and collectible cars and vintage motorcycles of interest. Car clubs are welcome. Each $75.00 car show registration includes:
- 2 Weekend tickets to the race events
- Touring laps on the Sonoma Raceway in your show car
- VIP Parking
- Full access to the race car paddock
 

We’re organizing an informal social event on Saturday, April 20, 3-6 pm, in the Triumph race car paddock, in conjunction with the presentation of the Kastner Cup Award Ceremony. You are all invited and I will send updates about that event as the date gets closer.

Attached is area hotel information. If a group of you decide to attend you might be able to arrange a group rate.

This information is also being sent out to the Triumph Travelers in the Bay Area, United British Sport Car Club in Sacramento and the Triumph Club of Southern California. We’d love to have a nice showing of Northern California British car club members! 

Please register on the event sites. But if groups of you will be attending, please let me know so that we can plan for how many might attend the Saturday social event. And please reach out if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Season’s Greetings Everyone…..

 

As 2023 winds down, taking with it some of the most memorable times in our lives, it’s worth taking time to reflect on how blessed we really are.  I hope the Season finds you well and that you’re able to enjoy Christmas and New Years with your families and friends.  We look forward to lots of great new VBAC adventures as we move into 2024.  Our 2024 Clovis British Auto Roundup will once again be held on the streets of Old Town Clovis, Sunday March 24th.  Registration is now open!  Since we moved to the March date, three years ago, ours is one of the first (if not THE first) ALL British car shows of the year. I believe it is quietly becoming one of the premiere events more and more people look forward to attending. 

 

Our VBAC website (valleybritish.org) has seen some amazing upgrades over the past few months and I encourage everyone to take a look at, and enjoy, those changes.  A huge word of thanks goes out to our Website Keeper, Marty Hardison, for his diligence as we continue forward.  Please remember you’re encouraged to send articles and photos of your travels so they can be added to our VBAC Magazine section.  Also, please send your Individual Bio information  (and up to three photos) to Marty, to be added to our website Member Roster.

 

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!      Cheers, Jon.

Greetings Everyone…

 

I hope everything is well with you and yours, and also hoping your Holiday plans are coming together smoothly.  

 

I’m getting a bit of a Holiday head start by sending everyone the information for our 2024 British Auto Roundup.  I hope you will join us as we once again take to the streets of Old Town Clovis.  This year, will be celebrating 100 Years of MG! 

 

As Easter will fall on the last Sunday in March of 2024, our Roundup car show will be held one week prior, the weekend of March 23rd and 24th.  You’ll find the flier and registration form enclosed in this email.  You can print and mail the completed form, along with your entry fee(s) to our PO Box, or register online at motorsportreg.com.  If you send a check, please be sure you make it out to Valley British Auto Club.  The use of the VBAC abbreviation is not acceptable to our Bank and the check will be invalid.

 

VBAC member participation comprised only 1/3 of the total 2023 car show entries.  It’s our hope to see those numbers increase in 2024.  The Roundup is a great time for all in attendance and we are once again anticipating some wonderful raffle items which will surely appeal to everyone.  Our Charity Raffle proceeds will once again be donated to the Central Valley Veterans.  

 

As always, please feel free to contact me or any of the other VBAC Steering Committee members with any questions you may have.

 

Thank you and we look forward to another great show in 2024.   Jon.
