Location: Kroger at Southern Plaza, 4202 S. East St., Indy, 46227
The Great Race is an invitation-only rally from Jacksonville, Fl to Traverse City, MI. Last year had 137 entrants, with cars ranging from prewar Hudsons and Bugattis through 1950’s Studebakers to 70’s era Jensen Healeys. This year’s route includes a promotional overnight stop in Franklin, so we’re organizing a short drive down to see the cars. THE ARRIVE TIME FOR THE CARS IN FRANKLIN IS 4;30, AND I CANNOT GET A RESPONSE FROM HAGERTY AS TO HOW LONG THEY WILL BE ON THE SQUARE, HENCE THE NEW TIME (4:00PM). We will drive down US31 to Franklin to see these fabulous cars, which will be parked on the main square. Drive will happen rain or shine. Contact Mike Roe (email@example.com) with questions.
Title: Dinner and a Movie
Date: Thursday, July 13, 2017
Time: 8:00 pm
Location: Royal Theater, 59 S. Washington St. Danville, IN 46122
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 121th anniversary of this event with its annual rally/tour across Indiana, for all British cars.
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
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).
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.
Don’t forget the London to Brighton Run on Saturday to top off the week. The run is is a top notch event put together by the Indiana British Car Union. It’s hard to say which year of the run was the best because every year is just as good as the last year & you don’t want to miss out. Hope to see you all there.
