One of the most successful new additions to the packed entertainment programme at last summer’s Silverstone Classic was the introduction of eBay Restoration Live – a great innovation that returns by popular demand in 2017.
Over all three days in 2016, festival-goers watched Fergus Walkinshaw and his team fully restore an iconic first-generation Range Rover using parts and accessories sourced solely from ebay.co.uk, live at the event. In 2017, Fergus Walkinshaw will again be masterminding a live restoration, but this time of a 1984 Ford Capri which will be sold after the event with all proceeds of the sale going to the event’s official charity partner, Prostate Cancer UK via the eBay for Charity programme. To date, this programme has raised over £100 million in the UK for great causes.
The restoration team will also be bigger, made up of a five-strong team of mechanics hand-picked for this challenge and an additional mechanic provided by Forces’ Motorsport Charity, Mission Motorsport. Read more about the project and the team who will be restoring the Capri over the weekend here.
Once the mission is completed and the chosen car restored to its former glory, it will take centre stage at one of Mike Brewer’s Car Clinics presented by eBay, where Fergus will share the team’s experiences of the restoration
