Mustang Birthday Parade
April 3, 2014: Mustang owner Mike Brewer joins 50th anniversary celebrations • Wheeler Dealers presenter to host classic car buying clinics
Television personality Mike Brewer will add yet another significant dimension to this summer’s award-winning Silverstone Classic (25-27 July).
Best known as the star of Channel 4’s second-hand car show Deals on Wheels and now the Discovery Channel’s popular Wheeler Dealers, Brewer will be one of many famous faces contributing to the non-stop entertainment at the World’s Biggest Classic Motor Racing Festival in 2014.
By happy coincidence the former car trader has just finished having his Ford Mustang renovated and he will be bringing his pride and joy to Silverstone to lead Saturday’s special on-track parade celebrating 50 years of America’s most revered motoring icon.
“As an owner of a 1967 Fastback Mustang that I recently restored, it’s a treat to be able to get the car out and enjoy what the 'pony' stands for,” enthused Brewer. “This year is going to be a BIG one for Mustang enthusiasts and the biggest party of all happens to be in the UK, so I was delighted to be asked to be involved with this year’s event and to bring my car along for everyone to enjoy. It's always a pleasure meeting fans of classic cars and I can't wait to get to Silverstone Classic in July to meet them all and start soaking up the amazing atmosphere.”
With so many car clubs now making the Silverstone Classic festival their main annual event, there’ll be no shortage of classic car fans for Mike to meet. An unprecedented number of more than 100 clubs have already signed up for 2014 and the sheer scale of their massive displays – which totalled some 9000 classic cars in 2013 – is now one of the event’s central attractions.
As well as joining the massive Mustang celebrations, Brewer will be taking over the main stage area on Sunday, sharing his immense knowledge about the buying and selling of classic cars in a number of special live clinics. These will be open to all show-goers and are sure to be immensely popular new additions to what’s already a very long list of unmissable festival attractions.
Tickets are only available in advance and the Classic is sticking to its popular ‘access all areas’ policy. Offering great value, all admission tickets grant access to free parking, both race pits and paddocks, trackside grandstands, fun fair rides and air displays plus, of course, Brewer’s clinics and the live music concerts on Friday and Saturday evening which this year will be topped by Canned Heat and Bonnie Tyler.
Both individual day and special weekend tickets are available with significant discounts for children aged from six to 16. Those aged less than six years are admitted free.
Further festival information and full details of all ticket prices is available via the official Silverstone Classic website.
