Refuelled and Ready, the third REVS virtual car show, is coming on 12-13 September, and you’re invited to be part of it.
New to this event is a ‘talking heads’ feature, where members of the classic car community can submit 60-second videos explaining how they’ve used their classic in lockdown, how they have been supporting or felt supported by the classic community in the past few months, or looking forward to their post-lockdown automotive adventures.
The virtual REVS events were the brainchild of Bicester Heritage chaplain Rev Adam Gompertz, and were designed to help support enthusiasts, maintain people’s mental health and well-being, and bolster the classic car family as a whole during the pandemic.
The group’s Facebook page is now an active, vibrant community in itself, and this third event will support and raise awareness of charities including MIND, Mission Motorsport and Starter Motor.
Now it is your turn to share your stories.
REVS Refuelled and Ready will start at 9:30am on Saturday 12 September with a live stream from the Command Works at Bicester Heritage, featuring track action, interviews with guests including our own Steve Cropley, plus Q&A sessions, while Sunday will feel more like previous online REVS events, with contributions from Brooklands, the British Motor Museum and others.
“We started the REVS virtual events to help people in this time of uncertainty with something really interactive and incredibly encouraging,” explained Gompertz. “Positive mental health is a subject that I’m passionate about, and the ability for us to support each other as we grow a great family of motoring fans has been phenomenal.”
What’s more, the success of REVS Limiter has been recognised with a nomination in the ‘Lockdown Initiative 2020’ category at The Historic Motoring Awards, with Rev Adam Gompertz also getting a nod in the ‘Classic Car Ambassador of the Year’ class – both richly deserved.
