Brits at the Burg 2020 CANCELLED



Following cancellation of other automotive events (Formula 1, Indy 500, NASCAR) we have decided to cancel Brits at the Burg for 2020.  For those that have pre-registered, a refund will be sent.  We hope that we can have a more casual Cruise-in/Open House at BTM in the Fall dependent on conditions and restrictions.  Stay tuned for updates.
