Lakeland Motor Museum helps stage national motoring spectacular

Lakeland Motor Museum - Drive It Day 2017
Lakeland Motor Museum – Drive It Day 2017

An array of historic vehicles have gathered at the Lakeland Motor Museum as part of a nationwide celebration to help showcase the best of the UK’s transport heritage.

The attraction was one of five official “locations of national significance” named as a stop-off point as part of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs’ special ‘Drive It Day’ on Sunday 23 April 2017.

Home to a unique collection of 30,000 exhibits, including 150 classic cars and motorbikes, the Museum was one of only a handful of designated venues chosen by the FBHVC for the annual event. It commemorates a 1000 mile trial that was run at the start of the 20th century and gives car enthusiasts the chance to drive their historic vehicles in celebration.

Chris Lowe, Operations Manager at the Lakeland Motor Museum, says, “We were excited to help soak up the atmosphere of this special celebration, marking the very best of our motoring heritage. The Museum is undoubtedly a unique stop off point; some drivers used us as a quick pit-stop during the day, while others lingered a little longer and took a look at our displays.”
