About the Cape Cod British Car Club
The idea behind the Cape Cod British Car Club started in May 2000. After acting as the hosts for a Cape Cod event sponsored by New England Triumphs on Memorial Day weekend, Bob Greene, Kevin D. Thompson and Brian Nickerson thought it would be great to have more events on beautiful Cape Cod. The ocean views coupled with scenic roadways make Cape Cod perfect for leisurely trips in British roadster automobiles, not only in the summer, but year-round. The group felt that there should be enough interest in a club on Cape Cod by residents and visitors alike. In August 2000, organizational efforts began. After our first year, membership hovered around 150, and covered 7 states. Our first year saw over 30 different club activities ranging from biweekly cruise nights to backyard barbecues, local car shows, tours, dinner cruises, drive-in movies, and lots more. We also had our first major event in October of 2001. This was a three day long British extravaganza that has come to be known as the British Legends Weekend. Our first event attracted over 100 vehicles and now is a yearly happening not to be missed.
Check out the updates on the website for the next annual British Legends Weekend and other events! Within a few years, the club’s membership reached over 300 with about as many members off-Cape as on. As a relatively newcomer, CCBCC became one of the larger British car clubs in New England. Events spanned a relatively large geographic area, with about half of the events off-Cape to serve that component of the membership. The club is now more than a decade old but still an active organization. New leaders have stepped forward to guide the direction of the club and it has been refreshing. Come join us at an upcoming event on our calendar. Don’t by shy; just elbow yourself into any conversation. Your involvement will pay back dividends.
