The CPT’s first ever North of England Ride & Drive event is to take place in Newcastle on 9 March between 1100 and 1400hrs. The new event follows the success of CPT’s previous Ride & Drive events held in North Weald every summer, which has been established since 2012.

Many manufacturers will be in attendance, and will have vehicles available to test drive, including EVM and Dawson Group. The CPT says that the event is expected to attract over a hundred attendees, and is the ideal opportunity to network and catch up with other industry leaders and colleagues.

There will also be an assessed drive, with the winner to be announced at CPT’s North of England Regional Dinner held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in the evening. The Ride & Drive event will be held at Newcastle College’s main car park, postcode NE4 7RW. The event is free to CPT members.

Speaking ahead of the event, Andrew McGuinness, CPT’s North of England regional manager said: “We look forward to welcoming CPT members from all over the UK to what is set to be an exciting session of activities. With such a great line-up of manufacturers exhibiting, it is not one to miss.”
