CBR Classic Restorations Technical Masterclass

After an excellent inaugural event in 2019, our plans for a second session had to be put on hold due to the pandemic. So we are delighted to be able to announce the return of the Technical Masterclass at CBR.

Hosted by Andy Waters, CBR owner and technician-supreme on the Round Britain Coastal Drive, our first event was a real treat, and this promises to be even better, with four technical sessions, lunch and a chance to chat with experts.

£35 per person to include coffee on arrival from 10am and a light buffet lunch. Approximate 4pm finish.
