Much-loved TV personality and well-respected motoring mastermind Mike Brewer will be back with his crowd-pleasing Car Clinics at the 2019 Silverstone Classic festival (26-28 July 2019).
Since being introduced in 2014, Brewer’s informative and entertaining presentations have become one of the off-track highlights and a firm favourite with the tens of thousands of enthusiasts flocking to the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival.
Now the star of Discovery Channel’s globally-successful ‘Wheeler Dealers’ television programme returns for a sixth summer in succession casting his expert eye over an even more incredible line-up of notable classic cars – his popular Car Clinics coming in the breaks between the unrivalled roster of 21 outstanding retro races on both Saturday and Sunday.
Among the rare and iconic cars coming under Brewer’s scrutiny in July are significant historic models from Chevrolet, Daimler and Dodge plus, as part of Ford Capri’s 50thbirthday celebrations at the Classic, one of the final fastback models to have come off the production line.
Providing audiences with further enjoyment, Brewer will also be joined on stage by Tim Moore (photo row three), the well-known humourist and travel writer who has just journeyed through ‘Trumpland’ USA in a 1924 Model T Ford for his latest travelogue titled ‘Another Fine Mess’.
Critically acclaimed Moore has been hailed as ‘the world’s funniest travel writer’ by the Observer and will be sharing stories from his unforgettable road trip with his trademark blend of slapstick humour and affable insight.
“Whether in print or in person, Tim is a fabulous story teller and I can’t wait to hear all about his latest adventures,” enthused Brewer. “Like most of us with a passion for great cars, I just love the Silverstone Classic – it’s now one of best events on the planet and one of my highlights of the year. It’s always amazing to see so many incredible cars of all eras amassed in one place at the same time and, personally, it’s a real privilege for me to share what’s always an incredible weekend with so many like-minded enthusiasts.”
Brewer’s return is welcomed by festival organisers, too.
“Mike adds yet another wonderful dimension to the amazing array of entertainment on offer,” said Nick Wigley,Silverstone Classic CEO. “Like so many of those coming to the Classic, he has a tremendous passion for classic cars – all Mike needs is a stage, a microphone and some stimulating cars so that he can share his whole-hearted devotion with others. It’s a winning formula.”
Admission to Mike Brewer’s ever-popular Car Clinics is one of many attractions open to all those attending the Silverstone Classic at no extra cost.
Providing terrific value for money, all visitors also have access to both racing paddocks, trackside grandstands and live music concerts on Friday and Saturday evenings which this year will celebrate the golden anniversary of the era-defining Woodstock festival. The majority of the fun-fair rides as well as numerous dynamic demonstrations and fun-fuelled family activities and attractions based on the busy Village Green are included in the price of admission, too.
Those purchasing tickets before the end of March can still take advantage of Early Bird prices offering significant savings of up to 17 per cent.
Full details of all Early Bird and standard tickets (which must be bought in advance) – as well as weekend festival camping and hospitality options – can be found on the official www.silverstoneclassic.com website.
