The IFLBCC has been contacted, through Alan Kleinschmidt, to attend this year’s Springfield Highland Games Car Show – Springfield Area Highland Games on May 15th .
FREE attendance requires submitting the Car Show Application (Word) – Participants MUST send the Show application before May 5th, 2021. Due to COVID restrictions only advanced tickets are allowed.
They would like to send out entry passes in advance to all who will be attending, in the hopes that all will go smoothly the day of the event. Entrants can respond either by email or snail mail, either works, just so long as they have the forms before May 1st so they have time to get passes printed and mailed out.
You can contact Stephanie McCann <[email protected]> by email with any questions you have about the event.
Alan is planning a group drive to the car show and has added an event on the Club Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/506114327061607 Please visit the event page to RSVP
IFLBCC Event Drive: (Google Maps Directions) For those leaving from Bloomington, Alan Klienschmidt will lead our drive on Sat. May 15th, from Casey’s on 2017 Fox Creek Rd, Bloomington, IL 61701. Departure time will be 7:30 for an approximate arrival time of 9:15 at New Berlin, IL. The drive avoids all interstate travel and skirts the North and West side of Springfield. The route is approximately 83 miles, so we’ll need to leave Casey’s promptly at 7:30

Please note that the Car Show parking will be at Gate 3.
The Champagne British Car Festival (CBCF) has been an annual event held the first weekend after Memorial Day since 1991. Our festival has been a three-day event culminating with a car show at the David Davis Mansion in Bloomington, IL and we have enjoyed excellent attendance from the public as well as car owners. Of course, in 2020, we cancelled the festival due to COVID-19.
We are resurrecting CBCF for 2021 in a limited fashion, consisting of a one-day outdoor car show, Saturday, June 5 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
We have been in touch with officials at David Davis Mansion and they have indicated, as a State of Illinois property, they will be open and supportive of the event. This will be strictly an open-air event and proper COVID precautions will be encouraged.
Here are a few notable changes for this year only:
• No classes, judging, or awards
• No formal registration • No registration fee (although donations for expenses and charity will be welcomed) • No welcome bags or door prizes
• No printed program/brochure
• No indoor activity (although David Davis Mansion will be open to groups of 10 or fewer)
BUT, You CAN expect to find our typical field of beautiful British cars, friends and the public!
Parking will be somewhat “park as you can” although we would hope the MGs, Triumphs, Healeys, Jags, etc. will park as a group although not necessarily by class, model or year.
Please connect with the CBCF and IFLBCC sites and Facebook to see up-to-date information.
Looking forward to seeing you at CBCF 2021!
