Drive It Day® - Sunday 23rd April 2017

About Hagerty’s Drive It Day

**STOP PRESS** Hagerty's 2017 Drive It Day Tour is now full! All further entries will be held on a waiting list.

The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs® ‘Drive It Day’ takes place every year to help raise awareness of the large and important extent of the classic vehicle movement in the UK. It is also an ideal opportunity to raise funds for both local and industry related charities.

The Federation is a grouping of over 450 clubs and museums together with some 1500 trade and individual supporters. Their aim is to uphold the freedom to use old vehicles on the roads without any undue restriction and to support its member organisations.

Hagerty International is pleased to support the Federation with this event, and will once again be hosting its own Drive it Day® celebration. The aim of the day is for everyone to have fun, enjoy the cars, the drive, and the company of like-minded enthusiasts.


The 2017 route will be 80 miles and will take approximately 2 ½ hours. Each entrant will receive a ‘tulip’ style road book detailing places of interest throughout the duration of the route, starting at Towcester Racecourse and finishing at Bicester Heritage. Upon arrival at Towcester Racecourse you will also be provided with your Rally Plaque.

At the conclusion of the route, Bicester Heritage are holding their regular Sunday Scramble event where Hagerty is hosting its live Valuation Arena. In conjunction with experts from H&H Classic Auctions, Classic Cars magazine and the online classified site, this will offer the chance for owners to have their car assessed, photographed and professionally valued. There is a small cost involved (all of which will be given to charity) and pre-booking is required- please see for more details.

Breakfast butties will be available to purchase at the start of our Tour at Towcester Racecourse, so feel free to grab a bite, a tea/coffee and take the opportunity to admire some of the other classics on the Tour, before we continue on our journey to Bicester Heritage. You will all receive a sticker which will allow you free entry to Bicester Heritage, where there will be a variety of attractions with our very own Valuation Arena as well as trade stands, vintage aircraft and a large number of historic vehicles will be on show.


Subject to the terms printed in this form, cars registered before 1st January 1990 may be entered subject to places being available. There is a limit of 100 cars.


Entry, which has been organised by Hagerty International Limited, is free (including entry to the Sunday Scramble, usually £5 per adult plus booking fee). However, one of the aims of the day is to raise money for various charities.

We would respectfully request that each entrant send a minimum of £25 as a donation towards these charities. Cheques should be made payable to Hagerty International Limited.
