Drive It Day 2022

On Sun 24th April 2022 a Drive it Day run was held in conjunction with the Morris Minor Owner’s Club, Scottish Branch, and the Mini Clan. In all around 30 historic vehicles participated.

There was a quick catch up by all and dishing out of some new Glasgow Morris Minors windscreen and engine bay stickers to members. 

About 11.15am the convoy departed south west, travelling along the scenic, hilly and winding old Stewarton Road. In Stewarton we were joined by a gorgeous 1946 Morris Eight Series E. From there the convoy travelled towards Irvine to the A78, exiting towards Barassie. Well, most of it did. Unfortunately temporary traffic lights and a lack of suitable stopping places meant the convoy was split, with some vehicles taking a more direct route towards Prestwick. 

The remaining vehicles travelled along Barassie sea front, through Troon to the A79, past Prestwick Airport, through Prestwick town centre and finally headed down Grangemuir Road to the sea front car park adjacent to Prestwick Sailing Club.

The convoy was met by more members of the Morris Minor Owner’s Club, Scottish Branch, as well as more Mini Clan members and other individuals. 

The vehicles drew much attention from passers by, aided by the beautiful weather. A photographer, Colin Hyslop, was on hand to take a little video and capture some of the vehicles. 

A beautiful afternoon by the sea was enjoyed by all – with no breakdowns reported!
