Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals Rescheduled

Apr 7, 2020

Due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, Carlisle Events has postponed the Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals benefiting Driven to Cure until Aug. 14-16. The event was originally scheduled for May 15-17. The pre-registration date has also been pushed back to July 13.

While the show has a new late summer date, it’ll maintain many of the previously announced displays, including the 100 Years of Mazda, 50 Years of the Nissan/Datsun Z, the race paddock, French car display in Building R and more. Further competitions remain, including drift limbo, drifting and autocross via NICOFest, low car limbo and burnouts. Also remaining in place is the charitable tie-in with Driven to Cure. DTC is a non-profit established to help raise awareness and provide funding for the research of rare kidney cancers like Hereditary Leiomyomatosis and Renal Cell Cancer (HLRCC) in children and young adults. A portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit DTC.

“Historically, this event is our first specialty show of the season, truly jump-starting the car show excitement at Carlisle,” said Carlisle Events co-owner Bill Miller. “So many things are changing daily with this global pandemic and we feel it’s best for the safety and health of all involved to transition the show from its original May dates to the new August 14-16 dates. We’ll continue to follow all guidelines and directives set forth by relevant parties as well as state, local and national officials. Car shows will happen at Carlisle again soon and for our regular Import & Performance Nationals guests, I look forward to seeing everyone in Carlisle in August.”

Spectator tickets and registrations of all types, including showfield, vendor spaces, etc. will be honored for the new dates.
