Volunteers on the heritage team at the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) are predicting a record turnout for this year’s Drive It Day event which takes place on Sunday 27 April. Enquiries and venue bookings are well up on last year at this time and the availability for the first time, through FBHVC, of five museum waypoints for clubs to use has encouraged more clubs to organise events around these attractions.
Ken Coad, the lead organiser on FBHVC’s heritage team is very encouraged by the high level of interest this year. “Last year was our biggest event ever with the Sunday Times estimation that there were 250,000 historic vehicles on the roads. With the interest we have seen to date this could easily be topped. Club organisers should ensure they register their interest with us so that we can secure their privileged parking with the venues. It would be an embarrassment to turn up on the day with your club to find the parking is all taken. For the sake of a phone call your places can be assured.”


ENDS

It commemorates the 64 cars that left London on a 1000 mile trial in April 1900.The objective for 2014 is to attract as many up and running eligible vehicles as possible out on the roads for this ‘special’ day.

Despite being near Brooklands, the Surrey team decided a short drive and a pint was more in order, a few of our number were unable to attend due to illness and holidays (and some rain was forecast), however we did get 2 Flaminias and 2 Fulvias, all being different models.  We had a nice drive in the Surrey Hills with other car clubs out and about too and many cyclists.

Didn't drive to any of the events but did drive the 38 miles to my Mother's and back in the Beta. Only saw one other classic, a heavily laden late 1940's (?) Sunbeam Alpine. Strangely it had it's long bonnet wedged open, presumably to assist cooling, or perhaps suffering from modern fuel vaporisation?
