Drive It Day on Course for Record Participation

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.”
