PARLIAMENTARY CAR RUN CANCELLED
The 2020 Parliamentary Historic Vehicle Run, organised by the All Party Parliamentary Historic Vehicles Group and scheduled to be held in June this year has been cancelled.
Making the announcement, group chair, Sir Greg Knight MP said: "Sadly, due to the continuing uncertainties surrounding the pandemic, we have made the regrettable decision to cancel the Parliamentary Historic Vehicles Group run from Bicester to Westminster this year. Instead, the event will be held in 2021."
The event, held every other year, has become a must for parliamentarians, classic car campaigners and is also supported by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs. Participants in the last run, after completing the route from the Midlands to the Palace of Westminster, were greeted at the House of Commons by the then Prime Minister Theresa May, who viewed the cars on display and then confirmed that the Prime Ministerial favourite is still a Rover P5B.
Commenting on the year ahead for classic car owners, Sir Greg cautioned against easing the lockdown too soon but he said the current move towards normality was ‘encouraging’ and "hopefully paves the way for classic car events to start to resume later this year.”
