The controversial TV Wheeler Dealer man will bring his Car Clinic as one of the major off-track event highlights. The former Discovery turned Velocity ‘Del Boy’ introduced the Car Clinics feature in 2014 and has proved to be a popular attraction for the classic fans of the largest classic motor racing festival.
Once again, in the breaks between the unrivalled roster of retro races on Saturday and Sunday, Brewer will be casting his expert eye over a great line-up of selected classic cars, sharing hints and tips on a number of restoration projects from dusty barn finds to stunningly renovated automotive icons.
Last year’s line-up featured an eclectic mix and included everything from a 1959 Ford Zodiac to a 1996 Porsche 993 Targa. Among the other stand-out exhibits coming under Brewer’s scrutiny were a 1967 Jaguar E-type, 1974 Pontiac TransAm, 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 and a 1984 Mercedes 500 SEC once owned by F1 legend Ayrton Senna.
Visitors are promised an equally diverse and appealing selection come this year’s Classic.
Ensuring everyone can share in and benefit from Brewer’s considerable expertise, his Car Clinics are located right at the heart of the event, close to the JET Big Wheel on the buzzing Village Green. Access to the Clinics is totally free for all ticket holders and, with more than 10,000 privately-owned classic cars attending the three-day extravaganza, Brewer can expect large and knowledgeable audiences throughout.
Mike said of his future date with Silverstone classic fans:
“The Silverstone Classic is just about my favourite event on Earth.”
“It’s not often that you get to meet so many like-minded enthusiasts and I just love sharing all my experiences and interests with them. With so many magical things to relish both on and off the track, it’s just petrolhead heaven for anyone with even the smallest interest in cars – I’m just so thrilled to be actively involved once again.”
