Hunt Country Classic

The 28th Annual Hunt Country Classic

2024 Date TBD

Advanced registration will begin next fall.

About the Event

This is the 27th annual celebration of our mutual interest in all British Classic vehicles including motorcycles. While there is a competitive element (judging of cars is by popular vote of those who entered their cars), our goal is to share our cars, our stories, and our love of the hobby with others and have FUN! So, bring your prized British Classic out to “The Hunt”, and enjoy the day with others who share your passion.

Award classes are created based on the registrations received for each major marque. Where there are insufficient entries to make up a class, we will provide classes grouped by type of car (e.g. “other”, sedans, sports, cars, etc. ). Dash plaques will be provided as supplies last.

Volunteers are always needed to help with the set up the day before, and to run the event on the day. If you’d like to help, sign up to volunteer.

 

RAIN OR SHINE!

The Venue

In 1995, Bill & Barbara Scott opened the gates to their lovely farm to us for what has now become an annual British Car tradition. Barbara has graciously continued to host the Classic since Bill’s passing in 2009. The Willoughby Farm is located in the heart of Virginia’s Hunt Country, midway between historic Marshall, and charming Middleburg. The rolling hills and horse paddocks provide a perfect location for our show.
