Chris Evans announces National Classic Car day for Friday 4 April

Chris-Evans-in-one-of-his-FerrarisChris Evans has revealed plans for National Classic Car Day on Friday 4 April – with all proceeds going to BBC Children In Need.

The Radio 2 DJ (and classic car uberfan) launched the first ever classic car celebration on his Breakfast show on Monday 24 March. He wants to see all classic car owners get their old motors out on the road to tackle the morning commute.

It’s a simple premise: pick up friends or workmates, take them to work and get them to donate money to Children In Need for the pleasurable privilege.

There are no rules, says Evans, and no minimum age for the classic cars. “If you consider it a classic, then it’s OK,” said Evans. “Class is in the eye of the beholder.”

More news will be rolling out on his show, but Motoring Research is already sold: we’ll be supporting the first National Classic Car Day by all driving to work in our own classics.

Will you join us and Chris Evans, and raise money for Children In Need? If so, let us know – and tell us which classic car you’ll drive to mark the inaugural National Classic Car Day…

UPDATE: The National Classic Car Day – your classics gallery is live! Send an image of the classic you’ll be driving today to and we’ll add it in.
