The Gaydon Heritage Motor Centre (HMC) is to host an exclusive Heritage Run from Lode Lane in Solihull to the HMC at Gaydon on Sunday 30 September 2012. Starting from the home of the legend at the Land Rover factory in Solihull, the procession will then make its way to the HMC. This Heritage Run is a great chance for spectators to witness 'history on the move'. This special Run will be limited to just 100 Land Rover vehicles including classic and present day models and will be an amazing spectacle to watch. Those that participate on this unique Heritage Run will enjoy coffee at Solihull, a special Plaque to mark the occasion and a photograph of their vehicle on the run. On arrival at the HMC they will then enjoy free entry to the Museum, a unique guided tour, a special talk, the opportunity to take part in one of the Land Rover Experience activities taking place and a delicious lunch.
Emma Rawlinson, Events Executive at the Heritage Motor Centre said, 'We have only four places left on the Heritage run this year. Also confirmed is a trip to the Obs tower next door to see the test site and a history talk from Michael Bishop.'
A combined Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £1.7 million in 2007 enabled the Centre to re-develop its museum, constructing a new mezzanine floor and three interactive exhibitions.
