Drive It Day 2023 and Race the Waves

Fingers crossed for good weather this weekend as there’s lots going on in the classic community. If you’re heading to the East coast this weekend take a trip to the South Beach at Bridlington where an eclectic mix of vehicles will be competing on the sands at this year's Race the Waves.

It’s a Retro Ford extravaganza!

If you’re a fan of the blue oval and you fancy a drive out with stunning scenery, Retro Ford are hosting a gathering at Tennants in Leyburn, North Yorkshire this Sunday 16th April at 12 noon.

The Great British Car Journey and a bumper week!

It’s no secret that I love British cars, so when I was asked to be an ambassador for the Great British Car Journey, I just had to say yes.

We are also looking forward to attending their Great British Car Meet on Easter Monday, 10th April, so if you fancy a drive out to beautiful Derbyshire, it would be great to see you there.

Come and meet me and Ivan at the NEC!

This weekend kickstarts the show season for classic enthusiasts for sure. I’m writing this week's newsletter from the Morris Marina Club stand at the NEC where it’s clear to see that everyone is raring to show off their motors.

Next month is going to be a busy one with lots going on, so it’s great to be getting the Ital ready and in tip top shape here at [...]
