History

 

It was in June 2000 in Lac Beauport, Quebec that the adventure began then known as the “Rendez-vous des Anglaises et Autos Sport Européennes”. (Rendezvous of English and European Sports Cars.) This activity conceived by André Labbé and Michel Desbiens and made possible by the participation of staff members and non members of the Club has given high visibility to the “Club Automobile Rendez-vous des Anglaises” (British cars Automobile Club) founded in 1983.

It was in 2001 that the activity, held on the parking lot of the Ski Centre “Le Relais du Lac Beauport”, adopted the name Rendez-vous British Quebec (RVBQ) it held until now. That year, more than one hundred cars registered for the activity a few from as far away as Ottawa, Ontario and Biddeford, Maine.

After a third season in Lac Beauport, the RVBQ moves, in 2003, to the Old Port of Quebec and will be featured there for three consecutive years until in 2014, we are moving to Domaine Maizerets.

After moving for a year on the South Shore of Quebec City at the Port of Lévis, it was in 2007 that the RVBQ settled on the “Plains of Abraham” in the heart of Old Quebec where it still runs today. It is thanks to the organizers of the first editions of this event who were able to convey their enthusiasm to the volunteers who took over that the RVBQ has become a traditional activity of the “Club Automobile Rendez-vous des Anglaises”.
