Hattingley Valley 

eBay is delighted to be the official parts and accessories partner at this year’s Silverstone Classic. The online marketplace worked with Fergus Walkinshaw on a live restoration challenge.  Fergus and his team returned a well-used Range Rover Classic to its former glory over the three day festival – using only parts and accessories bought from eBay.   The Range Rover was also showcased at the Mike Brewer Car Clinic where Mike and Fergus answered questions and shared their experience of the complex project.

Murray Lambell, eBay’s director of retail car parts & accessories, said, “Silverstone Classic 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. 

“With over 8 million live listings for car parts and accessories available to buy at any one time on ebay.co.uk, eBay is the essential destination for all car owners, whether they are looking for an everyday replacement part or a rare component in a restoration.
