Drive It Day encourages historic vehicle enthusiasts to use yesterday’s two, three, four or more wheeled vehicles for a day to celebrate the UK’s transport heritage at its finest.
All owners of historic cars are encouraged to take to the roads on the 21 April to demonstrate how many historic and interesting machines are still on the road today.
Most FBHVC members already have planned to make the most of this day by using the public roads, meeting at local venues, places of interest, including museums such as Beaulieu, National Trust and heritage properties, transport cafes, like the Ace, local beauty spots or even car parks.
The FBHVC team will be attending a number of the many events. In particular they will have an attendance at the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon, which is home to the world’s largest collection of British historic cars. Centrally positioned Gaydon would make a good start point, intermediate waypoint to visit en-route and an excellent location to finish a day’s run.
In support of Drive it Day, the Heritage Motor Centre will offer a special admission price of £5 per person for museum entry for those arriving in historic vehicles (20 years old or older). In addition a discounted rate will be offered for the Land Rover Experience. This is a ride, as a passenger, through the steep and twisting multi-terrain track, either in a modern Discovery or an early Series III.
Reserved parking for all Historic Vehicles – Free entry to Reserved parking, grounds and Cafe.
