Vauxhall backs classic cars event

Vauxhall will open the doors of its Heritage Centre in Bedfordshire to mark this year's 'Drive It Day' celebration of classic cars.

The annual event, organised by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs, will take place on Sunday April 22.

It encourages owners and enthusiasts to take their own classic car out on the road to celebrate motoring heritage at its finest.

However, before getting behind the wheel they're urged to make sure theircar insurance is up to date.

The centre, home to around 70 historic Vauxhall vehicles, will display one of the largest manufacturer heritage collections in the UK.

Vauxhall will lay on light refreshments for classic car owners at the centre in Park Street, Luton.

The doors will open between 10am and 4pm.
