October 3 – 4: CSRG Charity Challenge
What: The Charity Challenge is the most exciting, bang for the buck, feel-good vintage racing event on the West Coast. Over the past five years it’s grown at a phenomenal rate to the point where it’s on every racer’s short list. From the driver’s gift at registration to the last checkered flag on Sunday, the Charity Challenge is a delight.
The Charity Challenge is more than a car event. It’s an immersion into the type of road racing experience that people loved back in the 60s and earlier—only without the drawback of Port-a-Potties or spec cars with spec motors & drivers with the personality of dead grass. Instead, you get great cars, great racing and great people with a love of the sport to match your own. You will probably eat too much from the food and beverages available at the track, and be exhausted when it’s over, but it’s worth it. You just cannot do any better….
More info: Online at charityracing.org.
October 3: British Fall Classic Tour
What: The Annual British Fall Classic automobile show has been cancelled, BUT the good news is we are still planning the Tour event and you’re invited! Please join us for a gathering of friends and car enthusiasts to enjoy a beautiful afternoon drive through the back roads of Morgan Hill on Saturday.
More info: Online at www.thebritishfallclassic.com.
October 10: Downtown Alameda Classic Car Show – CANCELLED
What: More than 400 classic vehicles will be on display in Alameda’s historic downtown district. The free event runs from 10:00am to 4:00pm and is fun for the whole family.
It’s bigger than ever! Classic cars of every description will line up along Park Street between Encinal Ave and Buena Vista Ave. We’ve expanded the show to include classic vehicles on Alameda Ave, too.
See antique roadsters, coupes, hot rods, muscle cars, and much more. Most of the cars come from the magical decades of the ’50s and the ’60s, but there will also be plenty of muscle cars from the ’70s and ’80s along with classic beauties from the ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s. Bring your camera and don’t be afraid to talk to the owners — they love to talk about their cars.
Want to hear the engines roar? Come early to watch the parade of cars arrive between 7:30am and 9:30am.
The Downtown Alameda Classic Car Show will be packed with free family-friendly activities. While strolling through Alameda’s historic downtown district, enjoy a blast from the past as Local DJ’s Peter Fletcher and R. Duffy Collin spin some of the best rock n’ roll classics from two locations and stop at Alameda Bicycle for Island Schwinn’s 10th Annual Classic Bike Show.
More info: Online at downtownalameda.com/events/classic-car-show. The date for 2021 will be announced later.
