eBay Restoration Live makes return

eBay Restoration Live returns to the Silverstone Classic this year on 28-30 July where Fergus Walkinshaw and his team will attempt another project.

Using only items purchased online from eBay, the restored vehicle will be sold for Silverstone Classic’s charity partner Prostate Cancer UK on eBay after the event with all proceeds of the sale going to the charity.

This year’s 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.

Murray Lambell, eBay’s director of retail car parts and accessories, said, ‘We’re thrilled to be bringing eBay Restoration Live back to Silverstone Classic after a really successful debut last year.

‘For 2017, it’s going to be even bigger and better, with Fergus and a five-strong team of crack mechanics working throughout the weekend to bring a classic car back to life.’

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.
