Last weekend (6-7 May), the first Banbury and Bicester ‘Classic Vehicle Basic Maintenance’ course took place at the renowned Bicester Heritage.
Classic owners attended the two day course learning basic skills needed to maintain their vehicles as well as understanding key components and how to identify basic structural issues. During the course, owners were given tips from their tutors and were able to explore any particular maintenance issues they had, helping them to build confidence in taking care of their own vehicle.
The weekend also included a tour of the historical Bicester Heritage site, track activities and opportunity for a passenger ride in pre-war Bugatti and Riley. A certificate was presented to attendees on completion of their course.
An attendee of the event, Peter Viner, commented: “I really enjoyed the experience and have no hesitation in recommending it. My knowledge before the event was fairly average, but after I completed the two days it had improved greatly. The course is a ‘hands-on’ event in a safe learning environment with first class instructors.”
A five-day intermediate maintenance course is taking place Monday 15 to Friday 19 May, for classic vehicle owners who wish to learn how to carry out more advanced improvements.
