The inaugural British Car Week National Meet will take place in Arkansas at the end of the month, and the Historic Vehicle Association will be there. Find out how you can join the fun at Hot Springs with other British car owners from across the United States.

Are you a bit of an Anglophile when it comes to your automotive tastes? If so, you may want to consider making the trek to the first ever national gathering of British cars and their owners in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Running from Wednesday, May 30th, through Sunday, June 3rd, the British Car Week National Meet will feature a variety of events, speakers, and tours designed to appeal to fans of all things automotive and British.

As part of the opening day festivities, Carmel Roberts, HVA’s Vice President and Chief Legal Council, will be providing a lunchtime keynote address at the Clinton Presidential Library. Check out the BCWNM website for the full schedule of events and be sure reserve your place soon, as dinner and some party spaces are limited.

    I'd like to know your schedule of events. Last year the restoration of my late husband's 73 MGB was completed. It was returned to me in August. I only got to drive it for a month before I was hospitalized Sept. 6 for a lung transplant. I am looking forward to getting behind the wheel soon.

    Hello, I receive this newsletter because I own a 1968 Dodge Charger; however I recently purchased a 1975 Triumph Spitfire. This British car gathering in Hot Springs sounds interesting, but I am confused. This article says that Mr. roberts will be speaking at the Clinton Library as part of the opening festivities. The Clinton Presidential Library is in Little Rock; about an hour drive from Hot Springs. Just want to make sure that this information is correct. Thanks. Brent
