Drive It Day is an initiative launched by the Federation of British and Historic Vehicle Clubs: a grouping of more than 450 clubs and museums together with some 1500 trade and individual supporters. Every year, the Federation promotes a day where enthusiasts drive their cars to demonstrate the scope and scale of the classic vehicle movement, supporting the organisation’s primary aim of preserving the freedom to use old vehicles on the roads.
This year’s Drive It Day is April 28th and bookings are now open for the Hagerty event. Limited to 100 cars, the gathering starts at our Wardington workshops, with bacon sandwiches and rally plaques. From here, the drive takes participants to Claydon House, the Claydon estate and on to Bicester Heritage, with fast-track entry to the famous Sunday Scramble. Below is what Hagerty says about the route: please book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. We look forward to seeing you on April 28th.
Hagerty Drive It Day Route 2019
The 2019 route will be approximately 70 miles and will take roughly one and a half hours. Each entrant will receive a ‘tulip’ style road book detailing places of interest throughout the duration of the route, which will start at Tuthill Porsche just north of Banbury, where you will be provided with your Rally Plaque. The 2019 route will take you through Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire before arriving at our destination, Bicester Heritage.
Breakfast butties will be available to purchase at Tuthill Porsche, as well as the exciting opportunity to look around their fantastic new facilities. You will all receive free entry to the Hagerty supported ‘Sunday Scramble’ at Bicester Heritage for the driver and a passenger, where there will be a variety of attractions with trade stands, vintage aircraft and a large number of historic vehicles will be on show.
