CBCF Sunday Car Show

Beautiful Clover Lawn at David Davis Mansion in Bloomington, IL is the site of the 32nd Annual Champagne British Car Show, Sunday, June 4, 2023.

The entire grounds will be festooned with colorful Union Jacks and manufacturer’s flags, including such venerable British marques as MG, Triumph, Jaguar and Austin Healey.  ALL MG cars are the featured marque for 2023.

The Sunday Car Show is free to spectators, but suggested donations of $5.00 to benefit the David Davis Mansion Foundation are encouraged.

For 2023 the Champagne British Car Festival’s Car Show will return to traditional multi-marque voting and class based awards!

All registered vehicles will be entered into one of 21 marque specific classes. Voting will be a “Popular Vote” by registered participants. The total number of Class awards will be based on the number of pre-registered cars. The Best of Show award is presented to the car selected as the best among this year’s registered entrants. The People’s Choice award is voted on by show spectators (General Public).
