This year, for the first time eBay are joining the Silverstone Classic event which runs over three days from the 29th to 31st July as the official parts and accessories partner.
Adding a crowd-pleasing component to this summer’s staging of the world’s biggest historic motor racing festival show-goers will be able to follow the live restoration of a 1982 classic Range Rover over the three-day event.
This is a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate that eBay is the premier destination for car parts in front of a crowd who are themselves committed motorheads, many of who will be restoring their own classic cars. Hosted by eBay, RESTORATION LIVE with Fergus Walkinshaw is set to be a hugely popular attraction for the tens of thousands of show-goers, many of whom will be travelling to Silverstone in their own lovingly restored classics.
Walkinshaw and his team will guide the crowd through every step of the project as they renovate the iconic first-generation Range Rover using only items bought from the more than 8 million live listings of car parts and accessories on eBay UK.
Murray Lambell, eBay’s director of retail car parts & accessories, said, “We love Silverstone Classic. It attracts everyone from the highly experienced restorer right through to people who simply love their car – just like eBay does – so it’s a great event for us to be part of“.
