Sunday 23rd National Drive it Day  organised by Dave Hyde
This date encourages the 650  member bodies of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) and their 255,000 individual members to celebrate the Classic Car Movement 
The date is chosen to commemorate the 64 cars that left London on the first day of the Thousand Mile Trial on 23rd April 1900.
This is meant to show the public at large that we are out there using our classic cars so a large turn out would help the cause
