REVS Restored is coming this weekend (13-14 June), a Facebook-based classic car show for anyone in need of an automotive fix and pick-me-up.

It’s free to view from the comfort of your sofa and promises to be packed with lots of exciting content.

Following its successful predecessor REVS Limiter last month, which starred, among others, C&SC’s own Editor in Chief Alastair Clements, REVS Restored will remain faithful to the format of mixing videos from well-known members of the motoring community with enthusiasts’ photos and stories.

And, as before, it hopes to highlight the specialists and suppliers who help keep our beloved classics on the road, and who are looking to rebuild their businesses as lockdown restrictions ease.

It’ll kick off at 9:30am on Saturday with a mix of Q&As, virtual workshop tours, how-tos and more, and everyone’s invited to share photos of their classics.

Confirmed so far are TV presenters Drew Pritchard, Fuzz Townshend, Jimmy De Ville, Mike Brewer and Paul Cowland, plus another behind-the-scenes video from Aston Martin Works, and more from McLaren F1 and Lotus Elan designer Peter Stevens – as well as C&SC’s Clements who’s also back.

It’s about rebuilding people as much as cars, as the coronavirus crisis continues to take its toll and prevents traditional classic car shows from taking place.

“The incredible positivity of the first event was down to the outstanding contribution made by our passionate supporters, and I know that many found it a tremendous help during a stressful time,” explained organiser Rev Adam Gompertz.

“REVS Restored is for everyone, and we want as many people to join and participate as possible. It doesn’t matter which classic vehicles you’re interested in – there’s room for everyone.”
