William Medcalf Bentley to host January ‘Drive Out’
The third event of its kind will allow enthusiasts to see inside the workshop of the renowned pre-war Bentley restorers
Pre-war Bentley specialist William Medcalf Vintage Bentley is to host a third ‘Drive Out’ day at its West Sussex workshop for members of the public.
The event, scheduled for Sunday 7 January, will include a brunch offered from the Royal Automobile Club’s Pit Stop catering truck, positioned in front of one of the largest collections of Vintage Bentleys in the world.
Over 300 enthusiasts have attended the first two ‘Drive Out’ events, so William Medcalf Vintage Bentley will open its doors to the historic motoring community once again.
The West Sussex showroom is home to some of the rarest and most valuable 1922 to 1932 Bentleys ever made. The Drive Out days also offer an opportunity to converse and network with fellow enthusiasts.
Tours of the workshop facility will get under way from 10am on Sunday and refreshments are to be served throughout the morning.
William Medcalf said: 'Last January, we held the first ever Drive Out from William Medcalf Vintage Bentley and the success of the day required us to continue involving enthusiasts and aficionados with the cars we proudly showcase.
'One year on, we are once again sincerely looking forward to welcoming visitors to our workshop, to get a sense of what it takes to keep some of the rarest and most beautiful Bentleys on the road and race circuits today. This is just the start of a great event calendar in 2018.'
