Classic car enthusiasts to get their vintage fill thanks to Michelin


Classic car enthusiasts heading to this year’s Goodwood Revival can get their vintage motoring fix from Michelin, which will have a 1950s-style tyre garage complete with immaculate Bristol 401 at the show.



Michelin’s garage comes complete with authentic period interior, displays highlighting the company’s long-standing contribution to motoring heritage and a pristine Bristol 401 from the early 1950s.

The tyre manufacturer is offering motoring enthusiasts the chance to win two tickets to the event on Saturday, September 13, complete with accommodation. To enter the free prize draw, visit Michelin UK’s Facebook and Twitter pages between August 8 and August 24.

Visitors to Michelin’s garage can also brush up on their tyre-changing skills and tyre knowledge by chatting to one of the experts carrying out live demonstrations.

Vintage automotive fans can also take a trip down memory lane and view some of Michelin’s heritage products, including reproduction maps of World War II battlefields, which will be available to buy on the stand.

Malcolm Scovell, commercial director for Michelin in the UK and Ireland, said: “We’ve been pioneering tyre technology for more than 120 years and making tyres in the UK since 1927. Goodwood Revival is a great event for us to showcase that heritage and to show people how that culture of innovation is still at the heart of everything we do.”

As well as classic cars and motorbikes the festival offers helicopter rides over the Goodwood motoring circuit where a series of classic car races will take place. There will also be music by jazz, swing and rock and roll acts.

The Goodwood Revival takes place from September 12 to September 14.
