26th April 2009
Drive It DayŽ takes place every year to raise money for and to draw attention to the Federation of British Classic Vehicle Clubs and other charities. Hagerty International, the classic car insurance specialist, organised
their own car tour starting at Silverstone. Once we got there we
were given a tulip-style road book that mapped out a 35 mile drive
through some superb countryside to the Heritage Motor Museum a Gaydon.
Once at Gaydon we all parked up and were able to get into the museum at
a special rate. After some lunch we then followed the road book
back to Silverstone for a procession around the famous circuit!
Special thanks to Hagerty Insurance, Silverstone Racing Club, Silverstone Circuit and Heritage Motor Centre.
