The Rootes Archive Centre Trust is this year hosting a Drive it Day Treasure Hunt and Scenic Run, both starting from the Archive Centre at Westcott Venture Park, which will be open from 9:30am, a barbeque has been laid on with food and drinks being available all day. It is anticipated that the centre will close at 5:30pm.
The Treasure Hunt will start at 10:30am and will cover a distance of 53 miles around the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire countryside, returning at 1:00pm with the results being announced as soon as possible after all cars have finished.
The Scenic Run will start at around 2:00pm and take a different route through the same countryside covering a distance of 42 miles. On the run are a number of places where those taking part can stop and enjoy a walk or just sit and take in the view. You may complete the run and return to the Archive centre or break off at any point and return home.
Everyone is invited to attend and take part in either the Treasure Hunt or the Scenic Run or both, depending on the amount of driving you wish to do. There is no set charge for taking part ion the runs, but any donation to the Archive Trust would be most welcome.
