Racing driver and car restorer Fergus Walkinshaw will lead a team of top mechanics completely restore a classic car in front of festival-goers, using parts and accessories from eBay. This year the team take on a 1984 Ford Capri.

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.
