A very warm welcome to the official website of the Borders Vintage Automobile Club.
Whilst most of our Members own historic cars, many others simply share a passion for vintage and classic motoring.
We were formed in 1972 and this was the year that we held our first ever Scottish Borders Motoring Extravaganza. Now in our 47th year, this annual event has itself become a classic, now attracting more than 1200 entrants from across the length and breadth of the country.
2019 marks the 60th anniversary of the iconic Mini, a celebration which will form the central theme of this year’s BVAC Classic Festival of Motoring at Thirlestane Castle on 2nd June. Central to these celebrations, the BVAC are holding a special charity raffle for the chance to win a refurbished 1994 Mini Cooper...find out more
The BVAC Classic at Thirlestane is undoubtedly our ‘big’ annual event but Members also attend many other shows as part of the Club and we run a host of fun driving routes, treasure hunts and motoring related events throughout the year too.
If you have an interest in and a love of cars you certainly won’t want to miss our BVAC Classic - Festival of Motoring in June and if you own a classic or vintage vehicle then why not join our club!
Happy Motoring with the BVAC.
