The most dapper annual motoring event, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Drive, returns for its 2023 edition, promising an extraordinary celebration of elegance, philanthropy, and camaraderie. On Sunday, September 24th, distinguished gentlefolk from around the world will come together, donning their finest attire and driving their pre-1980 cars, to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer and men’s mental health.

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Drive is a global phenomenon that has captured the hearts of classic automotive enthusiasts around the world, embodying the spirit of sophistication, style, and benevolence. Participants will embark on a scenic and exhilarating journey in over 150 cities, showcasing not only their exquisite taste in cars and style, but also their unwavering commitment to making a positive impact for all men.

This year’s event aims to surpass previous achievements by rallying record numbers of participants and raising crucial funds and awareness for its charity partner, Movember. By harnessing the collective power of the global classic car community, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Drive hopes to shine a light on the importance of early detection and treatment of men’s health issues.

Drivers, if you’re looking for a spirited journey through your city’s most scenic roads, then this is the event for you.

“The Distinguished Gentleman’s Drive was founded out of a love for driving classic cars. It’s an event that looks to encourage all pre-1980 car enthusiasts to take their cars out of the garage and drive them for men’s health. It’s an opportunity for us to use the vehicles we love and care for so incredibly, as a force for good for causes that so desperately need attention. We need more drivers around the world who want to make a difference to join in and drive. So get behind the wheel of your classic car, and either register for a drive or host one yourself.
