Motorists are being given the chance to experience cars such as the Austin Metro, Austin Maestro and Hillman Imp, that once graced UK roads in their millions but are now a very rare sight.
UK driving experience providers, TrackDays.co.uk has announced its new ‘drive dad’s car experience’.
Released in time for Father’s Day on Sunday 20 June, it allows participants to drive cars that are now extremely rare commodities including the Austin Maestro, Ford Sierra, Vauxhall Cavalier and Robin Reliant.
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.
“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.”
