We are delighted to have 7 returning sponsors this year:

  • Lant Insurance, Autoglym - Silver Sponsors.
  • Hagerty Classic Car Insurance, Edward Jones Investments - Bronze Sponsors.

A huge thank you to all our sponsors for their support in making British Car Day® a success.
The vendor area is filling up fast and there will be the usual fabulous array of over 60 British-related vendors offering their new and used goods for sale, including car parts, complete cars, t-shirts, hats, tools, books, supplies, and so on. Many vendors offer end-of-season specials, so there are lots of bargains to be had and great food is available from the many food vendors on site.  If you would like to be a vendor at our show
details can be found on our web site at

The excellent glossy British Car Day programme will include a map of the BCD area, a history of our featured cars, interesting facts, a list of vendors and companies advertising a full range of classic car parts, products and services.   The BCD Programme will be provided at no cost to all registered car owners.  FAST LANE registrants will receive it at the main gate and "pay-on-the-day" British car owners will receive theirs when they register at the registration building.
British Car Day is a rain or shine event and we hope that we continue the tradition with a brilliant warm sunny day as we experienced last year.  There were over 1,000 show cars on the field in 2018 and it was a marvellous sight!
If you are staying overnight on Saturday, you may want to take in a drive which we are planning on the Saturday afternoon before BCD which will be led by locals.   More information will be provided closer to the time as will hotel discounts.
The executive and members of the Toronto Triumph Club, together with the organizing committee for British Car Day, look forward to welcoming you to the 36th show!   Please contact me at if you have any questions.

Chairman, British Car Day
