A FREE classic car show with more than just classics! Find out all about it, here!
Last year, The Peter Best Drive It Day at Braxted Park Estate was a raging success, with 500 cars filling the beautiful park grounds. This year, Peter Best Insurance Services (PBIS) are going even bigger with up-to 1000 vehicles. Expect a wide variety of classic cars, as well as plenty of supercars, modified cars, performance cars and some motorcycles too!
The Peter Best Drive-It Day is open to all, so why not bring your family along to join us at this amazing event.
All types of vehicles are more than welcome to attend FREE of charge. Whether you drive a classic, modified, supercar or something else, bring it along for others to admire. But don’t worry if you don’t have a vehicle to show off, you are still more than welcome to attend our event as an attendee. You will just need to make sure that you register yourself and the vehicle you’re travelling in as well as any passengers that are coming with you.
Last years Peter Best Drive-It Day
We were like kids in a sweet shop last year thanks to all the incredible cars we had the pleasure of seeing. A replica Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, replica Ford GT40, Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, Ginetta G15, Lotus Esprit, McLaren 570S, Lamborghini Huracan Evo and these were just some of the amazing specimens that stood out to us the most at last year’s meet! We can’t wait to see what amazing autos will be around this time!
Event Details – Free admission for all!
This year’s PBIS Drive It Day will be held on Sunday the 26th of April and will be running from 8:30am ‘til 4pm.
It will be held at the Braxted Park Estate (Postcode: CM8 3EN), located in Witham, Essex.
Entry is free for all! It’s free to display your vehicle but you must register your car on their Eventbrite page ahead of the event. It’s free to come along without displaying your car as well but you still need to register your vehicle to gain entry to then event, but you will be directed to the visitor car park instead of the display area.
Breakfast food will be available throughout the day at very reasonable prices and will be served at vintage-style stands, for the greatest immersion possible!
VIP Breakfast and Afternoon Tea experiences are available to purchase online as well, but you’ll have to be quick before they’re all gone! To book, please select the relevant time slot on the add-ons section when booking your tickets. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01376 574 000.
Parking is free for those who wish to display and for visitors as well.
Lastly, as a cherry on top, a photographer will be taking pictures throughout the day of displayed cars and yours may get photographed. You will be able to view and download these photos from our Facebook page for your keepsake!
What to expect?
As we’ve already said, there will be a wide range of vehicles on display of all shapes and sizes, making it a perfect day for the family! Expect a variety of different car clubs to attend such as MG, Mini, Land Rover, TVR, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Lotus and many more!
Part of the experience, we think, is getting to know the stories behind these magnificent vehicles. If you’re looking for a chat, you certainly won’t be short for people to talk to. You’ll likely find owners only a few paces from their beloved cars and they’re always rearing for a good old fashioned chin wag about their pride and joy.
The grounds of Braxted are a wonder of their own, with perfectly trimmed grass, quaint gardens, flowing water and a beautiful manor taking centre stage, there’s no better place to spend your Sunday in April! Even with a slight drizzle, the event was an absolute blast last year so (fingers crossed) with clear skies the 2020 PBIS Drive It Day will be even more spectacular.
In summary, the best thing to expect is the unexpected. Last year we were totally blown away by the sheer variety of vehicles on show. Sure, we were expecting to see the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang replica but we certainly were not expecting to see an Oldsmobile from the early 1900s, or a brand new Aston Martin Vantage, or a Triumph GT6 made to look like Disney’s Lightning McQueen. So in summary, expect to be surprised at just how much there is to see, do and discover at this year’s Peter Best Drive It Day.
