In a bid to refresh the usual format, this year’s Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show has launched Classic World which takes the enthusiast on the full journey through: Work in Progress, Staff Car Sagas, Barn Finds Revisited, and the Classic World Stage.
These four key sectors will be delivered by some of the UK’s best restorers and master mechanics to the arena. Ant Anstead from Wheeler Dealers, Car SOS’ Fuzz Townshend, and Jimmy De Ville from Goblin Works Garage and Fifth Gear are just some of the experts we’re expecting to see share their experiences across the weekend.
Former McLaren Racing F1 mechanic and pitstop crew member, Marc ‘Elvis’ Priestley, will be joining the crew along with Mike Coman and Danny Hopkins to bring you some of the freshest entertainment the show has ever seen.
Freshly restored cars previously seen on the Barn Find display and those classics that need regular care and maintenance to keep them going will also be showcased. None of the exhibits will be static with all making use of the new Classic World roadway so the audience can witness the sound, smell and noise from the rejuvenated machines.
Practical Classics Classic World has a packed timetable of content with interviews and discussions on the stage to practical sessions with mechanics and restorers on Work in Progress, Barn Finds Revisited and PC Staff Car Sagas, and live-action as fellow visitors take their restored motors on a tour of the Roadway, there is always something exciting to see.
The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) will also introduce its brand-new Skills Zone at the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show. Supporting the classic car movement for many years, the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) will deliver help and advice on the practical aspects of classic car ownership.
FBHVC Practical Workshop Demonstrations
Bringing together Federation partners and businesses with practical workshop demonstrations, the FBHVC Skills Zone will feature training sessions led by the Heritage Skills Academy Training Director, Steve Beaumont.
Visitors to the FBHVC stand will be able to enjoy a series of ten-minute tutorials followed by 20 minutes of hands-on experience. Dealing with subjects important to anyone involved in the maintenance or restoration of classic vehicles, the sessions will cover aspects such as tyres and electrical fault-finding.
