Drive It Day – Jensen Owners Club

Celebrate Drive It Day by admiring a diverse display of Jensen cars on the Azalea Ring.

Join us for a special event hosted by the Jensen Owners Club Sussex, as they gather at Borde Hill to celebrate Drive It Day. This annual occasion offers historic vehicle enthusiasts a unique opportunity to commemorate the One Thousand Mile Trial, which was organized in 1900 to demonstrate the revolutionary potential of the motor vehicle.

Jensens, renowned for their production in West Bromwich and their celebrity association, have held a significant place among the world’s Grand Touring cars. To honor this heritage, the club will proudly showcase a diverse array of these quintessential British cars on the Azalea Ring, including the Interceptor, C-V8, 541, and the iconic Jensen Healey.

Throughout the event, the clubs passionate members will be readily available to answer your questions, provide insights, and show visitors around their splendid vehicles. Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to experience the rich history and elegance of Jensen cars up close.
