On November 14, 1896, the first London to Brighton Run was held in England to celebrate raising the speed limit from 4 to 14 mph. IBCU celebrates the 121st anniversary of this event with its annual rally/tour across Indiana, for all British cars. Participants will enjoy an approximate 100 mile drive along some interesting roads in central Indiana, answering challenging questions and taking photos along the way. Trophy plaques will be awarded to the top ten finishers.
BONUS: DINNER & A MOVIE BEFORE THE 2017 LONDON to BRIGHTON RUN THURSDAY, JULY 13, 2017 As an added bonus this year, Hoosier MG’s is sponsoring a showing of the movie “Genevieve” at the Royal Theater in Danville Indiana. In this upbeat British comedy, two friends enter an antique car rally (The London to Brighton Run). Alan McKim (John Gregson) drives his beloved 1904 automobile, named Genevieve, while Ambrose Cleverhouse (Kenneth More) takes his vintage Spyker car. Alan and Ambrose bring their wives along for the wild ride from London to Brighton, and the trek soon turns fiercely competitive, each driver devising clever ways to sabotage the other in the hopes of winning the race.
Interested in dinner before the movie? Three local restaurants (Diesels, Frank’s Place, Mayberry Café) have a special offer of a free (non-alcoholic) drink with the purchase of a dinner entrée at their establishment. Just show proof of British car ownership and you’re in.
This showing is FREE to all British car owners, regardless of whether you plan on running in the rally or not. Just show proof of British car ownership (running or not) at the door. As a bonus, each attendee will get a free Jr. Combo (Popcorn, Drink, Candy, Handy Tray) courtesy of IBCU, including one free refill on drink and popcorn! The movie runs 86 minutes and will start promptly at 8pm on Thursday, July 13. The Royal Theater is located a short drive west of Indy just off SR36 in Danville, IN (59 S. Washington St, 46122).
