Entry for the 2018 Hagerty Spring Thaw will open January, 2018.

The Hagerty Spring Thaw is a budget-minded driving adventure through British Columbia for pre-1979 touring and sportscars. This un-scored, non-competitive event takes place entirely within the province of British Columbia and consists of approximately 1200km of driving over three days. The Spring Thaw is organized by Squamish Classic Car Adventures using straight-forward route instructions.

The Hagerty Spring Thaw will start on Friday, April 27th, 2018 and finish on Sunday, April 29th, 2018. Locations for the start and finish will be updated prior to the opening of entries. To ensure an “adventure”, the route will remain secret until competitors receive their entry packages at registration. Way-finding instructions will be detailed and clear, and will not require any calculations or rally knowledge.  The event consists of 100% paved roads, with some mountainous terrain, and driving is scheduled during daylight hours. Car wash facilities are available at each overnight stop, though our definition of ‘facilities’ is rather loose. The coin-op down the road may suffice!

Event: Vancouver All-British Whistler Run

On Sunday May 20, following the static ABFM event at VanDusen, the annual Vancouver-All-British Whistler Run will take place. This fun day gives participants the opportunity to drive their British vehicles on one of the world’s most scenic roads, the Sea-to-Sky Highway.

Entrants gather Sunday morning at West Vancouver’s Park Royal Centre for a pre-departure noggin n’ natter session that includes coffee and muffins and a goody bag that includes a special edition metal dash plaque and the official Bumper Rally Placard.

First car is flagged off at 8.30am, others arrive and—and leave at will (last car out 10am), for the approximately 119-kilometre drive to the alpine village of Whistler Creekside.
