Drive It Day - April 22nd 2018

#1 Post by johnnydog » Sat Mar 31, 2018 9:57 am

Drive It Day for 2018 is on Sunday 22nd April. This is the day that is endorsed by the FHBVC where many clubs take to the road and it is usually the first day of 'airing' their classic car for the show year. The Lancashire Group of the Register support this event each year to primarily promote the use of classic cars (and our Triumphs!) on the road.
We have travelled in various directions from Lancashire in previous years, including North Yorkshire, Cumbria, and Derbyshire.
This year it is proposed to travel into West Yorkshire.
For ease, bearing in mind the locations of those likely to participate, it has been decided to meet on the EASTBOUND (Leeds bound!) services at Birch Services on the M62 near Rochdale for a 10.30am departure. If you want to use their facilities, or grab a bacon butty, please get there earlier so that we are not waiting around unnecessarily.
We will be stopping for a brew / toilet break at a suitable venue, and then have a mid afternoon meal at the end of the run. We usually end the day around 4pm / 5pm to return home.
It is just leisurely run out, not a race or rally (!), taking on some of the more scenic and interesting routes of the area.
If you are interested in joining us, please let me know as soon as you can, as numbers will more than likely be needed for the meal.
Details are also in Aprils SIXAppeal, in the Lancashire Group Report.

Fantastic day at Brooklands. 5 cars went, two 2.5 PIs, one 2000, one 2500S estate, all mark 2 and a TR5 made a splendid line up. One car explored a little more of the country than was expected........ read all about it in the next Sixappeal :lol:
