Are YOU ready for Drive-It Day?

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Events Previews -


The Fed­er­a­tion of Bri­tish His­toric Ve­hi­cles Clubs (FBHVC) is ask­ing mem­bers to let the or­gan­i­sa­tion know their plans for Drive-It Day. It hopes to beat last year’s record turnout of 250,000 clas­sics on the roads on Sunday, 24 April.

The Bri­tish Mo­tor Mu­seum, Beaulieu and Bices­ter Her­itage have all con­firmed they will be hold­ing events to sup­port the na­tion­wide ini­tia­tive. Clubs will also be able to apply for spe­cial Drive-It Day plaques so that clas­sic own­ers can show their sup­port on the day.

‘A truly eclec­tic col­lec­tion of ve­hi­cles takes part, not only his­toric cars but buses, mo­tor­cy­cles, trucks, mil­i­tary or agri­cul­tural ve­hi­cles, petrol, diesel and even steam and elec­tric pow­ered ve­hi­cles,’ says Drive-It Day co­or­di­na­tor Ken Coad. ‘The events are as var­ied as the ve­hi­cles tak­ing part and in­clude drive outs, ral­lies, and meet­ings at lo­cal beauty spots or his­toric sites,’ he adds.

If you have a Drive-It Day event planned, get in touch with us and we’ll add it to our events diary (page 74), and pass on your de­tails to the FBHVC.
