When Great Escape Classic Car Hire organised its classic car rally we also invited along a couple of classic car journalists to sample the day and tell us what they thought.
One of those who came along was Phil Wheedon, Editorial Director of Classic Car Buyer. Phil has previously driven our Rover SD1 Vitesse in Suffolk but this time took the wheel of our Jensen Interceptor, Jaguar Mk2, Jaguar e Type, Jaguar XJS, Daimler Sovereign and TVR Tuscan. Apart from a couple of comments about the paintwork on the E Type and the XJS' handling (both cars are already booked in for work), he was full of praise for the excellent condition of the cars, the route and the organisation of the event.
"it's the perfect present for any petrol head," said Phil in summary. "Great Escape has a fine concept on its hands and I hope the company does more of them."
Our next classic car rally is on July 2nd when we are taking a tour of the Welsh Borders. m Our Break for the Border rally is already booking up and places are limited. Prices start at just £295 for one driver (less than hiring the E Type for a similar period) and includes lunch, fuel, insurance, a 180 mile tour and even breakfast.
