As regular readers will know, TKC Mag/totalkitcar have always been big supporters of Richard Usher and his Blyton Park circuit so we’ve naturally been following his new project the Great British Car Journey attraction with real interest.

Never one to be deterred, Richard has overcome illness, floods and the pandemic and has this week announced that he and his team will be opening their Derbyshire venue in late May after signing a lease on the former Wire Works site in Ambergate, Derbyshire (just off the A6 between Derby and Matlock). A brilliant venue.

Richard said: “Signing the lease puts us on track for opening. The enforced break means that Great British Car Journey will have even more British-made and designed classic cars.”

The theme takes visitors on an interactive trip through British car design and manufacturing from 1921 to the nineties using a unique audio-visual device.

Richard has also created the Drive Dad’s Car experience allowing visitors to drive a selection of over thirty British classics accompanied by an instructor.

We’ll be bringing you more on this one very soon. In the meantime, visit ENDS.
