The countdown’s on to get those classics out and on the road for Drive it Day – set to be the biggest ever this year. Everyone is urged to join in the big event on Sunday 22 April. Drive it Day is organised by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs and this year the Federation is being represented by two event: one at the Ace Café on the North Circular road and the other at the Royal Oak, Bishopstone, near Swindon.
FBHVC secretary Rosy Pugh said: “We think this will be the biggest Drive it Day so far – though because of the informality of the event it’s always difficult to say.
Drive it Day was developed from an idea by the late motoring writer Tony Beadle and has been taking place since 2006. The event commemorates the 64 cars setting off from London on April 23 1900 for the Thousand Mile Trial, but its aim is to show the world the size of the British classic vehicle movement and promote the FBHVC aim of upholding the freedom to use them.
