The Silverstone Classic takes place from July 29-31 this year will not only feature a multitude of classic racing but also a live restoration of an original Range Rover, thanks to official parts and accessories partner eBay.

A 1982 Range Rover will be restored by expert Fergus Walkinshaw and his team, using only parts sourced from eBay, with the whole project being completed over the three-day show period.

Murray Lambell, eBay’s director of retail car parts and accessories, said: “We love the Silverstone Classic. It attracts everyone from the highly experienced restorer right through to people who simply just love their car – just like eBay does – so it’s a great event for us to be part of.

“With such a huge selection of products Fergus and the team will easily find everything they need when they restore the Range Rover. eBay can help with everything from an everyday replacement part – to a rare component in a classic restoration.”

All tickets for the 2016 Silverstone Classic must be purchased in advance. Adult admission starts at £42 with the ‘access all areas’ policy providing admission to both National and Wing race paddocks, trackside grandstands, the vintage funfair, air displays and the live music concerts which include chart-toppers The Boomtown Rats, Reef and The Stranglers.

Full details of all tickets – as well as hospitality packages, special family offers and weekend festival camping – can be found at www.silverstoneclassic.com
