Drive it Day

Drive it Day - 23 April 2017

Tony Bunting is organising a Drive it Day outing to the "Sunday Scramble" at Bicester Heritage in Oxfordshire. Bicester Heritage is based in 348 acres of a historic 1920s RAF bomber station and is the first UK park for the restoration, storage and enjoyment of vintage and classic cars, motorcyles and aeroplanes. They have restored everything including the redbrick buildings, hangars, tree lined avenues and the airfield. It has everything on offer to celebrate and enjoy the UK's Drive it Day.

Classic Car Insurance Comparison Website

Insureaclassiccar.co.uk

Insureaclassiccar.co.uk was launched at the end of 2013. But surprisingly it seems, it is not well known. This price comparison website devoted to Classic Car insurance has been established by Bauer Consumer Media, the publishers of Practical Classic Magazine.

However it doesn't cover all insurers. We note that for instance Peter Best isn't on their list, but it could help with the amount of phoning around that we often tend to do at renewal time - especially in these times of uncertainty where another round of insurance hikes seem to be all too often reported by the press.

Roverfest

 11 - 13 August 2017

Roughly 18 months of planning has commenced for the show to dwarf our 50th anniversary of the Rover P6 in 2013. 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the legendary V8 engine which was first put into production in the Rover P5 in 1967 - six months ahead of the Rover P6B.

This event will be the first true joint event of the Joint Rover Clubs where all nine Rover clubs are working together to create the biggest Rover show in living memory.

A better deal on car insurance for under 25s?

Learning to drive is expensive these days. On average, it now costs nearly £3,000 to get from your first lesson to the big day when you can drive away with a crisp, fresh license. And that’s if you can pass first time, which statistically nearly 70% of learners won’t.

 

If you’re a young petrol head, that’s a lot of cash to have to stump up. Which is why so many under-25s find it impossible to make that dream of the open road a reality due to the spiralling cost of insurance.
