Returning for its second social media show, after thousands of car enthusiasts gathered for REVS Limiter in May, the free-to-join REVS Restored arrives this weekend for a two-day event.
Built solely on the support and enthusiasm of car and bike fans, the REVS virtual show is designed to provide an inclusive weekend for those passionate about vehicles and those struggling with the effects of lockdown.
Kicking off on Saturday at 9:30am, the live show includes well known TV presenters, motoring personalities, car experts, influential car designers and artists. With new stories, videos and pictures being added across the weekend, there’ll be plenty to enjoy and share over the two days.
With a mix of how-tos, Q&A sessions as well as virtual workshop tours, confirmed contributors include: Aston Martin Works, Drew Pritchard, Fuzz Townshend, Jimmy DeVille, Mike Brewer, Paul Cowland and Peter Stevens.
To date 3,400 members have signed up for the weekend, and REVS Restored has already surpassed the aims of its founder, motoring enthusiast and car designer-turned-reverend Adam Gompertz. Supporting the wider automotive community, REVS Restored is designed to highlight the specialists in the industry who will need to rebuild their businesses when lockdown comes to an end. It also hopes to give people a weekend of classic vehicle themed content that they can enjoy, understanding that restoration is a personal path to wellbeing and mental health.
“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 Adam. “REVS Restored is for everyone, and we want as many people join and participate as possible. It doesn’t matter which classic vehicles you’re interested in – there’s room for everyone.”
Over the weekend there will be the chance for contributors to the last event to share some more details of the vehicles they posted online, while REVSources provides owners with a directory for specialists within the classic and historic vehicle community.
Powered by the commitment of its contributors, the non-commercial project is working with Mission Motorsport, the forces charity focused on the recovery and rehabilitation of service personnel through the competition of motorsport and working within the automotive industry. For the weekend, the REVS Mission Exhibition allows motoring artists the chance to sell a single piece of work and donate the proceeds to Mission Motorsport.
REVS Restored will run as a Facebook group, and people can upload their own pictures/stories of their cars – sharing their passion for any vehicle. The group is open to all and can be joined here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1581868865322731/
