Drive It Day encourages our 520-plus club members and their supporters plus other 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 by demonstrating both the wealth of fascinating machines of all types and ages that are kept in this country and highlighting the large numbers of people engaged in this interest.
Plans are already in hand for 2016 with a FBHVC presence expected at Gaydon, Brooklands and Bicester. As with the 2015 event clubs will be able to make their own routes and visit venues of their choice.
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. This year the FBHVC are not marshalling any venues as most car club organisers prefer to plan a route themselves. As usual many motoring venues and museums are anticipating DID visitors.
As usual we look forward to receiving many reports from member clubs.
For 2015 the Bicester Heritage combined "Brunch Scramble" and DiD was a great success attracting over 1,500 vehicles. The FBHVC had a stand, with our secretary Rosy Pugh in attendance.
