The 32rd Annual New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run will continue the tradition of well organized, scenic tours, with stops at interesting destinations. As usual, participants will enjoy pre-tours on Wednesday through Friday, August 7-9, with the grand run on Saturday August 10th.
The pre-tours allow drivers to test their cars on shorter runs, before the grand run on Saturday. These shorter tours are also a great way to enjoy the camaraderie of friends, both new and old. The grand run is a reliability test for cars and drivers alike. Completing the 120 mile journey from New London to New Brighton is sure to generate a feeling of accomplishment. All along the route, groups of spectators cheer and encourage the drivers as they pilot century old vehicles toward the goal of earning a coveted ACR medallion.
