BVAC Classic at Thirlestane


With regret, The Borders Vintage Automobile Club has taken the decision that the club's annual Festival of Motoring due to held at Thirlestane Castle on June 7th, will be postponed until 2021.  The current and developing Coronavirus situation means that it would not be viable to continue to organise and run the event at this time.   

 The 2021 event will take place on Sunday June 6th at Thirlestane Castle.  

The team would like to thank the many clubs and entrants who have already pledged their support for the 2021 event, as well as to their lead sponsor Brewin Dolphin for their ongoing support.
