2019 Portland All British Field Meet Celebrating 43 Years
Saluting Sixty Years of MINI - September 6th, 7th & 8th 2019
Special Guest for 2019, “The Legend" Paddy Hopkirk will be a guest at the 2019 Portland ABFM Celebrating 43 Years, Saluting Sixty Years of MINI. A HUGE thank you to the MINI of Portland for making this spectacular visit happen!
Paddy will be known to everyone, as his experiences and record of achievements are too numerous to list. Paddy is one of the greatest British rally drivers of all time. He made his name in the Mini after taking overall victory in the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally. This massive achievement went down in history, forever linking the name of Paddy Hopkirk and the Mini, making them instant Rally Legends.
Bring Your British cars and motorcycles. Join OVER 800 other British vehicle owners and share your interests with other enthusiasts. Replica cars made in England with British components (e.g. Panther) and specialty cars with British chassis and running gear (e.g. Arkley) are welcome, as are British bodied cars with American engines, including conversions.
The weekend kicks off with the Friday Welcome Party, followed by the Saturday car show, Guided walking tours, BBQ, Giant Slalom competition, People's Choice balloting, a live music performance, Arts, Crafts & Photo Contest, Scavenger Hunt for the Kiddos, Best in Show designation and a Land Rover Adventure Ride. Sunday's activities include a Rallye, swap meet and more fun on the PIR track in the Giant Slalom.
People's Choice ballots are cast for more than 80 classes of British cars, which are owned and driven by club members from more than 30 British car clubs across the U.S. and Canada--a truly international event! Attendees can leave with not only good memories but mementos and memorabilia as well, after a stop in the Regalia Tent.
We anticipate a good showing with Aston Martins plus a dozen Rolls-Royce and Bentley Automobiles. This year the event salutes 60 years of the Mini. All 'Brit' cars are welcome to join the fun. Sunday morning we will take over the streets of Portland for a fun rally, which is open to all registered vehicles. With over 800 registered cars we are the largest ABFM in the United States.
The organizing Clubs welcome the public to take in this rare assembly of the West Coast's finest British Steel. The Portland All British Field Meet is promoting this event and expects a large crowd of spectators and media coverage.
