After a sell-out inaugural event, Footman James and The Classic Motor Hub’s Drive-It Day Classic Tour is back by popular demand.
Held on 28th April 2019, the classic car-focused companies have increased numbers to 50 cars (from 30 in 2018) in a bid to get more classic cars and owners on the UK roads in conjunction with Drive-It Day.
The Drive-It Day Classic Tour, which starts at 09:00 on Sunday 28th April 2019 is inspired by the famous Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs® Drive-It Day, aimed to motivate owners and classic car fans to use their vehicles.
Starting from the impressive Chateau Impney hotel, famous for its historic motoring hill climb, the 50-strong Drive-It Day Classic Tour convoy will drive to Cotswolds-based Classic Motor Hub to see the five-acre site dedicated to classic and modern performance machines.
Tickets to the Drive-It Day Classic Tour are available on a first-come, first-served basis, priced at £15 each. This includes a route card, rally plaque for a car and a £5 donation to Footman James’s nominated charity Mind, the mental health charity. Each ticket is for one car and the organisers encourage as many people as possible to join in the fun, as such there is no limit on the number of passengers in each car.
“Last year’s event was a sell-out with a fantastic atmosphere,” said David Bond, Managing Director at Footman James. “It was such a stand-out day in our 2018 events calendar and the team can’t wait to see another great mix of cars being used on the Drive-It Day Classic Tour in April.”
Ben Stinson from The Classic Motor Hub remarked, “We are very pleased to once again offer a superb Drive-It Day Classic Tour in conjunction with Footman James. The feedback from last year’s tour was fantastic and we look forward to welcoming an even larger group of participants in their classics this year.”
The Drive-It Day Classic Tour is open to 50 cars. Tickets will be available to purchase on classicmotorhub.com from Tuesday 29th January.
