Friday, June 7th 2019
By popular demand the Hidden Highway Road Tour will be offered once again as the kickoff event of the 2019 British Motorcar Festival Weekend.
For 2019, the Hidden Highway Road Tour will charter a route that will take in Sachuest Point, Middletown, Tiverton and Little Compton, RI. This will be a pre-registered ONLY event, so that we can produce the needed collateral materials to include personalized name badges and windscreen car cards. If you so choose, lunch will be on your own at the scenic Tiverton Boathouse. Residing on a bluff over the foot of Mt. Hope Bay, the restaurant beckons guests to relax and soak in the panoramic, award-winning bayside views. Each entry will receive route driving instructions, drivers meeting protocols, interesting site specific flyers, Touring Paraphernalia including a commemorative Tour License Plate, and options for post luncheon activities. Tour Members will depart from the Bristol Town Beach Parking Lot in Colt State Park at 8:15 AM on Friday, June 7th. We will need to cap the number of cars on tour so please do register early.
