Father’s Day 2019 is almost upon us so it’s time to start worrying about what on earth you’re going to buy this year. Thankfully, if your dad is a bit of a petrolhead, there are countless gifts that would be perfect. Here are a few ideas:
A Track Day
Treat your dad to an adrenaline-fuelled track day experience that he’ll remember for years to come. It’s a great opportunity to put a range of cars through their paces at some of the country’s most iconic tracks, including Brands Hatch and Silverstone or more regional, closer to home circuits like Goodwood or Rockingham.
If your dad loves a good road trip, get him a great book of some of the best drives in Great Britain. There are books available that detail trips through South and East England, the South West, Central England, the North, Wales, Scotland and the Lake District. There’ll be tips, travel info and plenty of details to inspire his next road trip.
Car Cleaning Gift
If your dad spends most weekends outside cleaning and polishing his pride and joy, then why not treat him to a luxury car cleaning kit. Some of the top of the range kits include products for cleaning the exterior, wheels and interior of his car.
The finest quality driving gloves are usually made from fine, soft leather that provide the driver with a better grip on the gear stick and steering wheel. If you think it’s time to spoil your dad with a luxury pair of driving gloves, you could be looking at around £70 for a quality pair.
The Silverstone Classic is a 3-day event that features classic cars and racing, so it makes an ideal gift for the car-crazy man. Held at Silverstone, home of the British Grand Prix, it is known for being the biggest classic motor racing event in the world. Imagine his joy as you take him to see over 10,000 shiny, buffed-up pristine vintage beauties.
Did you know that every year over 1.5 million vehicles are stolen in the UK? Thieves have overcome many modern security features and most stolen vehicles are never recovered. Help your dad to avoid becoming one of these statistics and keep his vehicles secure. A tracker can help recover your vehicle if stolen, so it’s an investment well worth making. Installing a tracker, as well as alarms and other security measures can also reduce his insurance costs. For more information on Vehicle Tracking
With over 350 historic properties, a National Trust membership might be the perfect present for a dad who loves heritage. The National Trust is one of the largest landowners in the UK and they look after a wealth of monuments, historic houses, gardens and areas of incredible natural beauty. Send your dad on the road trip of a lifetime with a membership that will take him to some amazing sites right across the country.
