Much-loved TV personality and renowned motoring mastermind, Mike Brewer, returned to Silverstone Classic 2018 with his hugely-popular Car Clinics as one of the major off-track highlights. This year, the attraction was presented by Haynes Publishing.
While still at school, in 1956 a young John Haynes wrote and published his book on building a ‘special’ based on an Austin 7. Then, ten years later, the first ‘proper’ Haynes Owners Workshop Manual followed the strip-down and rebuild of a Frogeye, complete with the practical step-by-step photography that has become so synonymous with all Haynes manuals. These two cars formed part of the line-up for Mike's Clinics this year.
In the breaks between racing on Saturday and Sunday at the Silverstone Classic, Mike cast 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.
Details of the full line-up at Silverstone Classic 2018 are as follows...
