Woodstock British Car Show / Catskill Conquest Pilot Rally
Two automobile events return to the Catskills this month. On September 22, the Second Annual Catskill Conquest Pilot Rally takes off from the Catskill Interpretive Center in Mount Tremper, travelling 75 miles through Ulster and Delaware Counties to Unadilla. The route traces the original 1903 Automobile Endurance Run of 36 cars across nearly impassable roads through torrential rain. The rally is a noncompetitive tour and all cars are welcome.
The 10th anniversary Woodstock British Car Show invades the lawn of the Woodstock Playhouse on September 23 (9am-3pm) with rare cars from across the pond. You can register a car in advance, or just attend and take in vehicular beauties like the 1967 Sunbeam Alpine two-seat touring convertible recently featured in Hemmings Car & Exotic Car magazine. Expect to see classic British cars from across the East Coast, including MGs, Trimuphs, Austin-Healeys, and Jaguars.
