Hagerty to host 100-car Drive it Day run to Bicester Scramble

Hagerty, the leading automotive lifestyle brand, has long campaigned to save driving and preserve special cars. 

With this in mind, Hagerty presents a series of annual events to give enthusiasts a reason to use their vehicles. The 2022 Hagerty event season starts with a special 100-car Drive It Day run to the Hagerty sponsored Bicester Heritage Scramble event on Sunday 24th April.

For a number of years, Hagerty has organised events to coincide with Drive It Day, an annual event organised by the Federation of British Historical Vehicle Clubs which was first introduced in 2005. 

Drive It Day remembers the 1000 Mile Trial, originally organised by the Royal Automobile Club in 1900, which started in London and followed a route through the UK before heading back to the capital.

Starting at Hagerty’s UK Headquarters near Towcester (just a few miles from Silverstone circuit), there will be an opportunity to enjoy 100 classic vehicles with a good cup of coffee before the drivers assemble to head towards the Hagerty-sponsored April Scramble at Bicester Heritage. 

The Scramble event is already sold out, but Hagerty drivers will have guaranteed entry provided as part of their entry to the run. Upon arrival at Bicester, Hagerty will provide private on-site parking for the entire day, allowing guests ample time to enjoy the show and the hospitality provided by Hagerty.

100 drive slots are available, each with a great opportunity to raise vital funds for the NSPCC via the purchase of an official Drive it Day plaque priced at just £10. Registering for the Hagerty Drive it Day event provides each entrant with free tea and coffee, entry to the sold-out Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble, and all-day Hagerty private parking. Donating just £10 to the NSPCC is rewarded with an exclusive Drive it Day run plaque.

Speaking of the event, Mark Roper, Managing Director for Hagerty International, said:
“Hagerty is famous for providing engaging events and activities for classic and collector car enthusiasts, so what better way to start our 2022 event season than with a 100-car drive. I look forward to meeting all the drivers when we welcome them at our Northamptonshire HQ ahead of the run to Bicester Heritage, and while the April Scramble is already sold out we are able to invite 100 additional cars as part of the Hagerty 2022 Scramble sponsorship agreement.”
Places are strictly limited to 100 cars and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Those who reserve a place will receive an email to confirm their entry.
