SILVERSTONE CLASSIC - INTRODUCING THE NEW AUTOCLASSICS MARKETPLACE
INTRODUCING THE NEW AUTOCLASSICS MARKETPLACE
• A new partnership with AutoClassics.com announced
• Opportunity for dealers and restorers to engage with huge Silverstone Classic crowds
• In-depth editorial support for world’s biggest classic motor racing festival
The organisers of the Silverstone Classic are delighted to announce that AutoClassics.com has been appointed as the event’s Official Online Marketplace Partner – an exciting appointment which will add yet another valuable new dimension to the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival.
AutoClassics.com is the new global marketplace and information base for collector cars of all ages, from turn-of-the-century pioneers to the latest supercars. The online platform provides free to list advertising as well as high-quality news, features and market analysis making it the perfect partner to the Silverstone Classic – an annual event that attracts more than 100,000 car loving visitors.
Now, to bring AutoClassics to life, this summer’s three-day extravaganza will debut the ‘AutoClassics Marketplace’.
Appropriately, the ‘AutoClassics Marketplace’ will be located in the busy infield area adjoining the multitude of car club displays where more than 10,000 privately-owned classics are showcased over the weekend.
This new initiative will give independent classic car dealers and restorers a wonderful opportunity to exhibit their specialist skills and standout models from their showroom collections.
“Autoclassics.com are delighted to be the Marketplace Partner at the Silverstone Classic this year,” enthused Ben Caspary, Partnership Director at AutoClassics. “As Silverstone Classic draws in such a diversity of crowds and provides something for everyone within the classic car community, it meant it was a perfect partnership for us at Autoclassics.com.
“Autoclassics are dedicated to providing the most extensive range of classic and historic cars for sale coupled with in-depth coverage across news, events, racing and ownership to fuel our users. Being part of the Motorsport Network, and the synergies with Silverstone Classic enables us to collectively share the passion amongst all our brands with the fans.”
Those sentiments were echoed by Event Director, Nick Wigley. He said: “The advent of the new AutoClassics Marketplace will provide our visitors not only with yet another appealing attraction but also a terrific chance for them to join the amazing classic car movement should they be so inspired… which it’s hard not to be at Silverstone Classic!”
Meanwhile, tickets for the 2018 Silverstone Classic are now on sale and must be purchased in advance. Keeping with the event’s widely acclaimed and great value ‘access all areas’ policy, all tickets include free entrance to both racing paddocks and pit complexes, trackside grandstands and live music concerts on Friday and Saturday evenings. Adult admittance is from just £45 and considerable savings are on offer for both families and those festival-goers spending the full weekend at Silverstone.
