Audrain Motorsport Veteran Car Tour

Audrain Motorsport is proud to announce the third annual Newport-Bristol-Newport Veteran Car Tour that will be once again setting off in style on Sunday, April 28, 2024. The first two Audrain Veteran Car Tour were truly a celebration of the early days of motoring, with many brass-era car collectors from New England and across the United States taking part. The event is open to suitable cars built prior to 1908. The event is unique in the United States, and we are thrilled that it is thought of in a similar way to the world-famous London to Brighton Veteran Car Run which has been in existence in England for over a century – something we are immensely proud to support! This year the route of the Audrain Veteran Car Tour will be a 50-mile roundtrip, departing from the Audrain Automobile Museum on Bellevue Avenue in Newport and will drive via the beautiful beaches of Newport before heading north along the comfortable back roads through Middletown and Portsmouth before crossing the historic Mount Hope Bridge to Bristol where it will turn around. Returning onto Aquidneck Island, the tour will pause for a well-earned lunch before setting off on the final leg back to the Audrain Automobile Museum for a celebratory reception.

This historic car-tour promises to be an exciting celebration honoring the great history of the early days of motoring in Newport whilst offering enthusiastic owners a chance to use their antique motorcars in the manner for which they were indeed intended.

Included in the driver’s invitation will be breakfast and lunch on Sunday. Once the tour is over, tea will be served when the participants celebrate their accomplishment and bask in the glory of finishing an epic drive!
