We were getting a bit of spring fever, so thank goodness April is here to help us out. The New York Auto Show concludes the major American show season this month, with several key debuts scheduled for the exhibition at the Jacob Javits center and the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition happens a couple of weeks later.
Racing fans will be busy with Formula 1 action from Malaysia and the Chinese Grand Prix. NASCAR stops at Phoenix, Texas and Talladega. IndyCar visits Alabama before making its annual stop in Long Beach. ALMS returns to Long Beach as well. WRC fans can see action from Jordan and Turkey, while Rally America stages the Olympus Rally. The NHRA schedule finds the Spring Nationals in Houston, the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals in Las Vegas, and the Midwest Nationals in Madison. SFR/SCCA will put on the Vintage Volvo event, while classic car aficionados can also partake in the Copperstate 1000, California Mille, or the LeMons American Irony.
April auctions include the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction, The Branson Auction, Spring Carlisle Auction, Classic Car Auction of Michigan presented by RM, and the Sporting Classics of Monaco sale.
Concours, meets and shows are beginning to fill out the calendar again as the weather improves and April welcomes Wheels Across the Pond, Portland Swap Meet, Motor Mania, HOT: Heart of Texas Corvair Reunion, Greystone Mansion Concours d' Elegance, Bug-a-Paluza, BRITS ON THE BAY, Spring Fling Ford Show, Shelbyfest 2010, "JEFFERSON 500" AT SUMMIT POINT, WV, The Houston Classic Weekend, and many others.

As always, we want to give a shout-out to our two favorite sources; The New York Times automotive calendar for national and international stuff, and our buddy Dave Lindsay's SoCalCarCulture pages for local stuff here in Southern California. Dave's photographic coverage of these local events is fantastic. Check out this month's event calendar below and start adding to it by leaving us a note in the comments.
