The ABBR is not just about a great drive in the country - it's about helping kids. Specifically, kids whose parents put their lives at risk so that we can play with old cars. 

Again this year, our selected charity is Our Military Kids which reaches out to children with a parent deployed to a dangerous place, who is suffering the stress of not knowing whether or when that parent is coming home, and in what condition, if and when they do. This stress can alter their behavior, affecting their performance in school and in myriad other ways. Our Military Kids steps in to fund tutors, after-school and extra-curricular activities such as sports, music, the arts, whatever it takes to keep that kid and his or her family on an even keel. 

Fifty teams will be accepted to run this year's DC ABRR. Each team will be asked to make its very best effort to raise $1000 for Our Military Kids. It's a goal we hope each team will meet and, where possible, exceed. 



You can register online by clicking this button (a processing fee will be added to online reservations). 






Or if you'd like to do it the old fashioned way click the Register Manually button, download the forms and return them to the address indicated along with a check for the application fee and we'll sign you up!



The application fee covers a host of common team expenses such as route books, pre-arranged lunch stops at the half-way points on Friday and Saturday, Friday and Saturday dinners, Sunday's celebratory brunch, event paraphernalia, and other miscellaneous expenses. It covers the repair truck and flatbed retainers that sweep the route behind the last car, along with two "Cars of Shame" for use in the unlikely event that your old British car proves unreliable. It does not cover the cost of repairs 

Hotel, gas, adult beverages, speeding fines and bail bond fees (just kidding; of course no one would do that), car repairs, other meals and the like are the responsibility of each team.

The DC ABRR will be run "cloverleaf" style, starting and finishing each day from the same hotel. No need to pack and unpack the car. Each day will bring a new route, focused on a new state or states.  


Registrations will be accepted starting February 1, 2020 on a first-come-first-served basis.  We will announce when all 50 spots are filled and begin a wait list.
