THE organisers of The Footman James Classic Vehicle Restoration Show are working in conjunction with The Norton Radstock Classic Vehicle Club to create a brand-new, live visitor attraction this November.

Showgoers can expect to see live restoration work going on all weekend, with the local club’s plan to completely restore an MGB GT engine belonging to member Raymond Whittock. Fellow member Steve Marsh plans to completely strip the engine back to its component parts and rebuild, using new parts as and when necessary. As an experienced Service Manager of a heavy plant contractor and a classic car enthusiast in his own right, Steve will be working on the engine all weekend, with two one-hour live commentary sessions on both Saturday and Sunday. The new feature will offer additional seating for visitors, and large screens to magnify detailed work. There has been an increase in demand for live restoration work at the show, and this new feature is expected to be well received by visitors.
