Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Drive-It Day par­tic­i­pants are be­ing urged to buy their plaques, as the sup­plier Drag­on­Fly has an­nounced the fi­nal or­der date. The cut-off for the plaque, which costs £8.52, is 18 April – five days be­fore Drive-It Day takes place. The event is or­gan­ised by the Federation of Bri­tish His­toric Ve­hi­cle Clubs (FBHVC) as an homage to the 1000-Mile Trial of 1900 run­ning from Lon­don to Ed­in­burgh and back. Around 450 clubs will unite on the day, with at least 250,000 peo­ple tak­ing part.

So far 2017’s event is set to in­clude gath­er­ings at Bices­ter Heritage, Gay­don, and Brook­lands.

FBHVC’s na­tional co-or­di­na­tor for Drive-It Day, Ken­neth Coad, says: ‘The Federation will have a pres­ence at Bices­ter Heritage but doesn’t know which clubs are par­tic­i­pat­ing or where, as there is noth­ing to stop in­di­vid­u­als giv­ing their pride and joy a run any­where. Var­i­ous car clubs are plan­ning runs in their re­gions.’

Last year’s pick of the pic­tures was Ed­win Jones’ run with the North West Gil­bern Own­ers’ Club.
