  1. #1 The Roadster Factory Summer Party Aug 4-6 2016 Armagh, PA 
    This will be "the" Wedge event for those of you on the East coast and Mid Atlantic region. The show has consistently drawn a solid British Car crowd, specifically around the TR7 & 8's and will again this year with the feature event for The Wedge Shop, Lanocha Racing and TheBritishCar.com. Come enjoy a great few days driving through the western PA country side while hanging out with some like minded British Car enthusiast.

    We have worked with TRF to solidify some driving events. We have secured drag racing with a local event, TRF will be putting on auto-x and Gymkhana events. We have even heard talk of a hill climb put on by the TRF.

    We will update this page with the list of events as they become booked, but get the dates in your calendar now and make the trip in August!

    About 1 week to go. Hope the cars are all ready to run. We are doing some last minute prep on The Wedge Shop convoy (7 cars).

    See you all there!

    Thanks
