FBHVC Drive It Day

Our 2022 event saw around 30 cars participate. We have again invited the Scottish Branch of the Morris Minor Owner’s Club and the mini Clan.

Once again all classic cars are welcome to participate in this run. You needn’t be a member of any club, just let us know in advance you’re coming so we can keep a track of numbers.

The destination is Prestwick Beach North. Journey time is 45-60mins from Glasgow south. Ayrshire Roads Alliance have confirmed they will cone off a car park section for our exclusive use. The car park will be close to Mancini’s Café and the public toilets.

Please familiarise yourself with the route ahead of the event as traffic lights and junctions have a tendency to split the convoy and it is not always possible to stop and regroup. Both the route and final destination point have been tweaked since last year.

Meet point: 1045-1100hrs, within the overflow car park for Patterton Railway Station (Stewarton Road, Newton Mearns).

Convoy departure time: 1115hrs prompt.

Destination: Prestwick Beach North, between Mancini’s Café and Kidz Play. ETA 1215hrs.
