The Federation of British and 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. Hagerty takes this opportunity to run an annual Drive It Day Tour for 100 classic vehicles, with the dual aims of increasing historic vehicle exposure and raising money for charity. Drive It Day 2018 will be held on Sunday 22nd April.
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 in 2018 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 2018 route will start at the Jaguar Land Rover showroom at Ryton-on-Dunsmore where entrants will receive an exclusive tour of the workshop. Then, using a ‘tulip’ style road book, entrants will take an approximately 2 ½ hour journey through the Warwickshire and Oxfordshire countryside, finishing at Bicester Heritage. Each car will also be provided with a commemorative Rally Plaque.
At the conclusion of the route, Bicester Heritage will hold their regular Sunday Scramble event where Hagerty hosts its live Valuation Arena. In conjunction with experts from H&H Classic Auctions, Classic Cars magazine and the online classified site www.ClassicCarsForSale.co.uk, this offers the chance for owners to have their car assessed, photographed and professionally valued. Please check Valuation Arena before the 2018 event for information on booking this service.
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. In 2017, there was a wide range of classic vehicles, from modern classics such as the VW Golf GTI and Datsun 240Z to older classics such as the Bentley R-Type.
