Sign up now for Drive It Day tour

| 16 Feb 2012

Hagerty has announced its plans for its increasingly popular free Drive It Day run, taking place on 22 April this year.

As in previous years, the insurance company is inviting 150 classic car owners to join it on a scenic tour as part of the hobby's annual show of strength initiated by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs.

The 82-mile route will take approximately two and a half hours. Each entrant will receive a road book detailing places of interest en route, including Silverstone Circuit, Althorp House, Naseby and the Sir Frank Whittle Memorial at Lutterworth before the cross country route ends at Donington Park.

Hagerty has arranged exclusive Sunday access to the Donington Grand Prix Collection at Donington Park, which will be available at a discounted rate.

"Hagerty is always excited about Drive It Day and this year is no exception," said Angus Forsyth, Managing Director of Hagerty. "The teams at Silverstone Racing Club and Donington Park have shown themselves to also be great supporters of the day and our partnership with them this year will hopefully provide all participants with a memorable experience."

Christopher Tate, Managing Director of Donington Park Racing, added: "Classic cars and our Grand Prix Collection are the perfect match on national Drive It Day. We at Donington Park are new and enthusiastic members of FBHVC and on a lovely spring day to drive your classic car through great countryside in the heart of England to a World class destination should make a fantastic day out for all those lucky enough to be involved."

Entry to the tour is free, but Hagerty is aiming to raise funds in support of the Marshall's Trust and HOPE for Cancer charities. Places on the tour are limited to 150 cars, full entry details can be found at on the website or by calling 08448 241130.
