eBay looks to inspire car lovers at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Press Release

The eBay Garage features an automotive museum where visitors can buy the exhibits

eBay will be inspiring petrolheads at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed with the eBay Garage – an interactive space, where festival goers can immerse themselves in the world of vehicle parts and accessories.

As part of its presence, eBay will also host a unique museum with a difference. Its carefully-curated exhibits will showcase key automotive developments across the last 75 years, with some items available to buy through the online marketplace – and all funds raised donated to industry charity, Ben.  

The eBay Museum has been conceived to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Goodwood Circuit and exhibits will include everything from Stirling Moss, signed period Goodwood programmes and innovative safety features to a Flux Capacitor from the Back to the Future movies.

A host of car experts, enthusiasts and renovators will be on hand to help inspire visitors with talks and demonstrations on the eBay Live Stage. Online car restorer, Matt Armstrong, YouTuber, Becky Evans, and racing driver, Charlie Martin, will be joined by Goodwood legend Duncan Pittaway, talking about their passion for tinkering with cars.

The eBay Garage will also provide space to play games and win eBay goodies, as well as to shop online for parts and accessories.

eBay is the ultimate one-stop-shop for all car parts and accessories and the recently relaunched Certified Recycled programme provides the ultimate peace of mind when buying second hand parts, with all items inspected, warrantied and sourced from end of life vehicles from approved suppliers.

The eBay Garage at Goodwood is just one in a series of events this summer where car enthusiasts will be able to meet the eBay team. It will also have a presence at the 

PistonHeads 25th Anniversary party (12 Aug), Ford Fair (13th August), The British Motor Show (17-20th August), German Car Festival (10 September) and the remaining rounds of the Bennetts British Superbikes Championship. 

As part of its sponsorship at the British Motor Show, eBay is the Official Partner of the sustainable V8 project, to see if a Ford Mustang can clean up its act using eBay-sourced parts and accessories.


Notes to Editors 

The eBay Museum online charity auction will be live over the duration of Goodwood Festival of Speed 13th - 16th July, with all funds raised donated to industry charity, Ben.
