For the past 27 years, the Vancouver-Whistler ABFM Classic Car Run has travelled the Sea to Sky Highway on its Vancouver to Whistler route, culminating with a car display in the Olympic Plaza and Creekside locations.
That route is no longer an option, as the Whistler Resort Municipality has introduced a new Green Eco policy that prohibits all carbon-burning vehicles from renting their facilities, effectively eliminating classic car events in the Village.
One route closes & another opens
As a result of these changed circumstances, the Vancouver ABFM Whistler Run will offer a new and improved replacement event— the Vancouver-Harrison All British Run—already affectionately dubbed the Searching for Sasquatch Rally.
With this fresh opportunity, the event organizers intend to increase the day’s fun factor, including entertainment, barbecue lunch, optional overnight hotel stay, plus awards and lots of prizes.
Ensuring the fun element will be the event’s official MC, our very own ABFM judge John Allen, Harrison Country Club & Resort owner, our event’s official venue.
Check out the event details below, and please send in your registration form—sooner rather than later, so we can finalize plans for this fun, classic-car day.
