Should I buy this experience?

Who it's for

You’re stuck in a traffic jam on your morning commute. Glancing around you, every car looks the same. If this makes you feel like modern motoring is dull, then these classic car driving experiences are totally for you. They allow you to hark back to that bygone age when ‘going out for a drive’ was a rather spiffing way to while a away a Sunday afternoon - and the cars were full of character, just like the ones you get to drive on these vintage sessions.

Who it's not for

If driving is simply a means of getting from A to Z, you probably won’t be interested in these classic car drives. Similarly, if you think old cars just mean lots of hassle, heavy steering, noisy and slow, the charm of driving a vintage car will be completely lost on you. Maybe it’s time to go modern and zoom off on a fancy supercar drive instead?

Classic car driving experience FAQs

Are these classic car experiences on the track or on the road?

Both! We’ve got a whole range of classic car driving experiences including both on road and on track sessions. Have a browse and see if you fancy cruising along carefully chosen country roads, or want to hoon it around a race circuit. You can do either with Into The Blue!

Which is better - a classic car road trip or track day?

Well that all comes down to personal preference. Some may prefer the exhilaration of learning race craft out on the track, whilst others might lap the luxury of spending a longer amount of time behind the wheel on a road trip. The road trips are probably more leisurely and make for an ideal day out in the countryside.

Are all these experiences self-drive car hire packages?

The classic car hire packages are all self-drive. Some are run as an accompanied road trip where you’ll all set off in convoy, others are totally self-guided with a pre-loaded SatNav route that you follow. And for some you get the car for a certain amount of time and it’s up to you where you go. If you’re out on the track an expert instructor will be in the front passenger to give you all the hints and tips about hitting that perfect racing line to help you get the most out of the car.

Is it purely British classic cars?

Nope. Although we do have an awful lot of classic British cars on the books, there are some awesome classic American motors too. And you can even book a slot in a vintage rally car!

What are the most popular classic cars to drive?

Jaguars without a doubt. The E-Type is widely revered by motoring aficionados as one of the most beautiful cars ever built, so if you’re driving one of these classics on the open road, expect to get lots of admiring glances, people waving and tooting their horns too!

Will I be insured whilst I drive?

Yes. Basic insurance is included. On track days you may be offered the chance to buy optional insurance to cover the excess. For the on road experiences insurance is included too and once again, there may well be an excess to pay in the event of any damage/accident. All the nitty gritty of the hire or track day insurance is detailed on each product page, or contact us via the on-line chat, email or ‘phone for more info.

Do I need to pay fuel costs if on a road trip in a classic car?

On the accompanied convoy-style group road trips fuel is included. If it’s a self-hire package where you get the car for 24 hours and you go where you like, you may have a limit on miles and/or fuel that’s included in the package. Classic car experiences on the track all have fuel included too.

Is it a hosted trip or self-guided?

We offer both. The hosted road trips are run in small groups, with regular stops so you can swop cars. These usually last a half or full day. On the self-guided trips, you will follow a set route at your own pace, within the limits of the time allowed.

Is lunch included on full day road trips?

Quite often yes! This is what makes these drives out in classic cars so convivial. Organisers know all the best places to stop, so it might be a delightful Cotswold inn for lunch, or a cosy tea room for cream tea.

How far will I drive on a road trip?

This all depends on how long your hire period is for. You could cover say, 150 miles on a full day trip, which includes stop offs to change car/driver, refreshment stops and even time to take pics of the landmarks on your travels. The full details of each trip itinerary can be found on each individual product page, so you can see if it’s the right one for you.

Can I choose which classic cars I want to drive?

Yes! You can choose the number of cars you’d like to drive on our multi drive experiences AND you can then request which cars from the fleet you’d like to drive. Of course, it’s not guaranteed, but the organisers will do their very best for you. And remember, due to unforeseen circumstances, cars out on the day can change from the ones listed on our website.

Don’t classic cars break down a lot?

They do, but these classics are all kept in tip-top showroom condition, with a team of in-house mechanics looking after them and making sure they all have current MoTs for driving them on the public roads. All that doesn’t come cheap, which is why you’re better off hiring a classic car rather than buying one and endlessly sinking money into it!

Can I invite a passenger to come and join me for the ride

Several of our hire packages will allow you to invite a passenger (or passengers if there are rear seats) to join you. Other road trips are organised with two drivers in each car and you swap, but you can buy a driver + passenger voucher, so you don’t have to share the driving with anyone. Obviously on track-based experiences, no passengers are allowed.

If I’m on a classic car track day is it all about racing?

No. Even if there are several cars out on the circuit at the same time, there is no element of racing involved. There’s a special protocol if you are overtaking or being overtaken, but in essence it’s all about you connecting with car and getting the most out of it for yourself and not against anyone else or even the clock.

Do I need a driving licence for these classic car drives?

Yes a licence is essential if it’s an on-road classic car drive. For the circuit drives it’s on private land, so it’s not a legal obligation, but nearly all operators ask that you have a full driving licence.

Can I drive classic cars near me?

We’ve got a good selection of locations on offer, be it for an on-road classic car drive, or a session on the track in your fave vintage car. The current list includes:
  • Redditch (lots of options)
  • Haringey North London
