Wigton Motor Club members took part in a national Drive It Day with a difference this year organising it as a ‘virtual’ event on social media on Sunday.
The popular driving event, traditionally takes place on the last Sunday of April, and is organised by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs to encourage owners to take their classic and historic vehicles out on the road at the start of the season. Due to the coronavirus lockdown restrictions, all motoring events have been cancelled until at least the end of June.
However, instead of gathering as usual at Dalemain near Ullswater, Wigton Motor Club organised a virtual Drive It Day using the club’s Facebook page, where more than 120 members posted photos of their cars.
A club spokesman said: “While we won’t drive our cars until the lock down is finished, we can still cherish them and there are plenty of members using the extra time to restore or rebuild their classic or competition cars.”
