1000 mile Reliability Drive arrives at Bowcliffe Hall

Sunday, May 6, 2018

This is from the post by the FBHVC and gives the background for the tour

"The route for the Federation’s 1000 Mile Reliability Run, marking the 30th Anniversary of the Federation and designed to raise the profile of the Heritage Engineering apprenticeships, has now been announced. The Run will also showcase the Austin Westminster Estate that has been restored by Practical Classics Magazine.

Practical Classics’ Westminster together with a specially chosen band of historic vehicles will follow a carefully planned 1000 mile route and we confidently predict that none of the vehicles will miss a beat. Historic vehicles can be reliable!

The Run will start at the Brooklands Motor Museum on 18 April and over 4 days will reach Edinburgh and the Queensferry Crossing before returning to Bicester Heritage for #DriveItDay on Sunday 22 April. On Monday 23 April the Run will extend to Anglia Car Auctions in Kings Lynn to publicise the auction of Practical Classics’ Austin Westminster estate car, with all proceeds being donated to the Lennox Children's Cancer Fund. The ACA auction will take place on 16 June 2018.

Member clubs who took part in the Federation’s Club Survey at the end of last year will have received an invitation to support the Run at one of its stops. If you would like to support by attending a stop and joining in a photoshoot please email us on 1000milereliabilityrun@fbhvc.co.uk.
