Sunday 2nd April sees the first of many 2017 events taking place at The Classic Motor Hub in Bibury, Gloucestershire, where classic and vintage motor enthusiasts and families will meet for their Coffee and Classics morning.

Hundreds of enthusiasts are expected to attend the event, when they can meet likeminded individuals over a relaxed coffee and bacon roll, and explore everything The Hub has to offer.

 

The Hub was created last year to bring together a number of classic, sports and vintage motoring businesses, all housed in the historic surroundings of the old RAF Bibury World War 2 fighter base. The Hub has a full calendar of events throughout the year, including classic drive-in movies, rallies and other historic vehicle meetings.

At Coffee & Classics, every area of The Hub will be open- the superb showroom of Cotswold Collectors Cars, the bike store with a wide range of classic motorcycles, Classic Motor Hub Sales selling modern performance cars, car storage and workshop areas, plus The Clubhouse which draws its history from the RAF Officers’ Mess.

Furthermore, for the first Coffee & Classics, public access will be allowed to an exceptional private collection of historic sporting cars and Steve Bell from Heritage Preservations Detailing will be detailing a very special Ferrari owned by a well-known motoring celebrity. Although the event is free to enter, visitors are encouraged to arrive in an appropriate vehicle, and charity donations will be taken to support the Midlands Air Ambulance.

All this, plus a few very specially selected trade stands and refreshments on hand, should make The Classic Motor Hub’s Coffee & Classics an event not to miss!

Coffee & Classics is being held at The Classic Motor Hub, Ablington, Bibury, Gloucestershire, GL7 5NX on the first Sunday of every month from April until October from 9am until Midday. All drivers and riders of classic, vintage and sports cars and bikes are welcome, and it is free to attend. Please Google ‘The Classic Motor Hub Bibury’ for directions (Satnavs can be temperamental!) and visit https://www.facebook.com/TheClassicMotorHub/ for more information and register your place.
