2016 SADCASE 'Drive it Day' 26th April 2016

'Drive It Day' encourages the FBHVC's 520-plus club members and their supporters plus other historic vehicle enthusiasts to use yesterday’s two, three, four or more wheeled vehicles for a day to celebrate the UK’s transport heritage at its finest by demonstrating both the wealth of fascinating machines of all types and ages that are kept in this country and highlighting the large numbers of people engaged in this interest.

Note: The right turn in Fittleworth on the dodgy bend is an awkward sharp right followed by 3.2 miles on a small country lane. If you feel this may cause you or your car problems then follow the alternative route. At point 11 keep left (not right) and then turn left on to the A283 towards Petworth. 2nd turning right staying on the A283 then 2nd right on to Kingspit Lane. Follow the lane to the end and at the T junction turn right on to the A272 to Wisborough Green and back at point 15.
