Alas, no Red Stripe, though I do remember BIG AL fondly. I doubt he ever attended this particular show as it was "all British", not exclusively Mini and only for a day. I'm sue he would have enjoyed it, considering the wide variety of vehicles that usually appear. The Montreal contingent did not come this year either, so the Mini component was smaller than usual. (Missed you, Deb & Kieth!)

Ottawa's "All British Car Day (lite edition)" was held on July 16, 2020 after a 2-year hiatus. Because it was a "lite" show, there was no registration fee and no vendors. There was a change in location too - to Clarke Field, a new undeveloped city park. No amenities and very little shade!

A few Minis did show up. My heart went to the 67 Austin Countryman, a close cousin to my first car - a green version of the one present.
The yellow "Tonka" Moke belongs to Kevin Chappell. The tasty Cabrio (with all the signs on the windscreen)  belongs to Hill Goldberg and in the background you can just make out Miguel Plano's green Moke next to the yellow Lotus (?).
Alas, due to health restrictions (mine not the car) I was unable to bring my Mini.

DR Who's TARDIS was also present, though I did not catch sight of the Doctor. He forgot to lock it so I was able to grab a quick snap of the interior. I guess whatever radiation the TARDIS emits was a bit much for my lowly cellphone camera as the interior shot is hazy.
