Ten min­utes to help keep clas­sics on the road

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

The Fed­er­a­tion of Bri­tish His­toric Ve­hi­cle Clubs is ask­ing clas­sic car en­thu­si­asts to take part in its na­tional sur­vey to es­tab­lish the needs of the clas­sic car move­ment.

The sur­vey closes at the end of June and cur­rently has 9000 re­sponses – 3000 down on the pre­vi­ous sur­vey five years ago. Spokesman Ge­off Lan­caster says: ‘It is im­por­tant that as many en­thu­si­asts as pos­si­ble take part as the re­sults will be used to take for­ward our po­lit­i­cal lob­by­ing for the next five years. If you want to pro­tect your rights to use your ve­hi­cle, get on­line and com­plete the sur­vey. It’s ev­ery­one’s chance to make a dif­fer­ence.’ The sur­vey takes as lit­tle as 10 min­utes to com­plete.

‘Typ­i­cally we’ve been hav­ing 100 re­sponses per day,’ says Ge­off, ‘but in the last fort­night this has dwin­dled al­most to noth­ing. I can­not be­lieve we are go­ing to have fewer re­sponses this time, when our new web-en­abled sur­vey al­lows a far wider num­ber of peo­ple to get in touch.’

The FBHVC es­ti­mates there are one mil­lion ve­hi­cles over 30 years old on the UK’s roads and had hoped to capture a wider cross sec­tion of this group. Sam Skel­ton
