Classic cars that were once on the UK roads in their millions but now are a rare sight have been given a new lease of life by TrackDays.co.uk.
Classic cars such as the Austin Metro, Austin Maestro and Hillman Imp, are rapidly dwindling in numbers and TrackDays.co.uk one of the UK’s leading driving experience providers are keeping these much-loved classics alive.
Their new Drive Dad’s Car Experience, released in time for Father’s Day on Sunday 20th June, allows classic lovers to drive cars that were often seen on driveways up and down the UK, but are now extremely rare, including the Austin Maestro, Ford Sierra, Vauxhall Cavalier and Robin Reliant.
A website which shows how many cars of any make or model are on Britain’s roads, Howmanyleft.co.uk says there are as few as 144 taxed Austin Maestros in the UK, 296 Austin Metros, 749 Hillman Imps and 1,091 Reliant Robins left.
Dan Jones, operations manager at TrackDays.co.uk, said: “This is a great opportunity to relive childhood memories behind the wheel of everyday classics that are quickly becoming endangered species.”
Dan added: “It doesn’t bear thinking about but there is the possibility that some iconic classic cars, that were incredibly popular in their time, could disappear for good over time. With so few left, a classic car driving experience might be one of the only opportunities for a nostalgic drive down memory lane in some much-loved motors.”
