2008 Clovis British Car Roundup – October 11th & 12th, 2008

More details and downloadable application:


The Clovis British Car Roundup is held once a year on the second weekend in October. This is your once a year chance to see British cars from around the state! See British cars from England like Triumph, MG, Jaguar, Healey, Range Rover, Austin, Morris, Sunbeam, Riley, Lotus and Mini Cooper.

This British car show is held in conjunction with the annual Clovis Antique and Collectables Fair so with this British Car show there is plenty to see and do! Restaurants, coffee houses, live music and tons of antiques and collectables will be available for your entertainment with this one of a kind British car show in downtown Old Town Clovis California. You will see a great assortment of old, not so old and classic British cars. All British car owners entered will have their British car photographed and will receive in the mail a great 8X10 print of their British car placed in the show. This British Car Show is destined to become a favorite of British car owners throughout the state for its ambiance and LOTS of stuff to do. This is one British car show that participants will return to year after year!

All British Car owners are invited to enter the 8th annual Clovis British Car Roundup celebrating the fast growing British car hobby in the Central San Joaquin Valley. Join us on Saturday for a tour of the Sierra foothills on Saturday morning and on Sunday take in the only display of British cars in the Central Valley between San Diego and Sacramento! October weather is always great in Old Town Clovis.

Your entry into the British Car Roundup will not only be your ticket to a great weekend of British Car fun but will also support the construction of the Valley Nature & Education Center near Clovis, California. The center is designed to provide a unique nature experience in an urban setting. The center will offer rescue services for animals and promote family, individual and student uses that are all geared to nature education.

Planned Classes for the 2008 Roundup

Three or more cars of a Marque must be entered to form a CLASS. Classes will be created based on entries received by Wednesday, October 10, 2007. If your car’s Marque/Model fails to form a CLASS then it will automatically be placed into either the “Open Sports Car Class” or the “Open Saloon Class”.

If there are less than three cars in either of these classes they will be combined into an “Open British Car Class”. This way everyone has a chance at awards.
