October Mid-Week Run @ Morris Leslie Classic Auctions
Oct 24 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

George has managed to secure us an invite to view the Morris Leslie Collection which is by all accounts quite a sight to behold.

The visit will be on Thursday 24th of October and will be a limited number event.
Morris Leslie look to charge £10 per head which they in turn donate to a charity of their choice.

George will collect this at the next club meeting (Thursday, October 10th) but in the meantime, if you are interested in attending, can you email the ‘General’ by clicking ‘HERE’ to provisionally book a space.

George is confident we will be allowed a group of 30 but the finer details have still to be ironed out.

More details will follow as we have them!

Drive it Day 2020
Apr 26 all-day

First introduced in 2005, the format for Drive It Day is a tried and tested formula. The FBHVC sets the date each year (as close as possible to the anniversary of the 1000 Mile Trial) and publicises the event nationally. The many clubs that comprise the Federation’s membership then plan and schedule regional and local events throughout the country. The events are as varied as the vehicles taking part and include Drive Outs, Rallies, and meetings at local beauty spots or historic sites. Important venues such as The National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, Brooklands, Lakelands Motor Museum, The British Motor Museum, Gaydon and Bicester Heritage are a few of the major locations that usually participate but there will be scores of events the length and breadth of the country.

Detail of the original event, courtesy of Graces Guide to British industrial history, can be seen here 

The site also has links to “The Autocar” for the year of the event, 1900, which are here

Member clubs are encouraged to let the Federation know their plans. The easiest method is to post on the  FBHVC facebook page here or to the FBHVC National Coordinator for Drive it Day is Ken Coad who can be contacted on email coadspeed@btinternet.com

Dates for future Year’s Drive It Days will be as follows:

2020 – 26th April
2021 – 25th April
2022 – 24th April
2023 – 23rd April
2024 – 21st  April
