More than 100 vintage vehicles will head to Backbarrow

THE Lakeland Motor Museum is to become one of just five venues across the country specially selected to help the UK celebrate a golden age of motoring.

Organised by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC), the annual ‘Drive It Day’ provides a focal point for motoring enthusiasts to commemorate a 1,000-mile event which took place back in April 1900.

The aim is to get ‘road-legal’ cars, motorbikes and commercial vehicles aged 30 plus years up and running to celebrate the special day.

Now it has been confirmed that the Lakeland Motor Museum is one of only a handful of designated venues chosen by the FBHVC for its members to stop off during the 2014 event.

Scheduled for Sunday, April 27, 2014, that means more than 100 vintage vehicles are expected to make the trip to the Backbarrow to help showcase the best of the UK’s transport heritage.

Chris Lowe, Operations Manager at the Lakeland Motor Museum, said: “Some drivers will use the museum as a quick pit-stop during the day, while others will linger a little longer.”
