Blue Diamond Riley Services partners with Historic Car Charity, StarterMotor

StarterMotor, a charity founded to promote historic car usage, skills and industry involvement for the next generation, is proud to announce that it is now supported by historic car specialist, Blue Diamond Riley Services.

Blue Diamond Riley Services, a leading specialist in the servicing, repair and restoration of historic vehicles, and in particular Rileys, has agreed to take responsibility for the charity’s ‘Young Drivers’ cars.

This fleet of vintage and classic cars are held by the charity for use by young drivers, and they will now be maintained by BDRS without charge.

In addition to ensuring that the StarterMotor vehicles are safe for the road and fit for use, BDRS has committed to supporting StarterMotor financially by encouraging all customers to add a donation to each invoice paid.

StarterMotor CEO David Withers said:
“We’ve been supported by the Blue Diamond Riley Services team since StarterMotor was founded. They’ve helped us out on several occasions without fuss or fanfare, so this partnership takes our relationship to the next level.
“BDRS, and its Managing Director John Lomas are keenly involved in charitable projects, and so I’m delighted that they have undertaken to help engage the next generation in historic motoring.”

Blue Diamond Riley Services is actively investing in the next generation as a business by employing three apprentice mechanics onto its staff via the Heritage Skills Academy.

These three young apprentices will be invited by StarterMotor to attend the events of charity partners, such as the Bicester Heritage Scrambles, and selected events from Hero ERA and Goodwood. They will also enjoy priority access to the ‘Young Drivers’ loan fleet

John Lomas, BDRS Managing Director, commented:

“We passionately believe in the fun and community to be found in the historic car world and we know it’s vital to be telling young people all about it. We’re delighted to team up with StarterMotor as they are the industry’s leading charity, and are admirably focused on engaging the enthusiasts of tomorrow.”

StarterMotor is a Charity based at Bicester Heritage in Oxfordshire, which has the aim of getting young people driving, maintaining and enjoying classic cars.

In an ageing society, the next generation of enthusiasts has to be provided with a route into the historic motoring world, in order that the heritage surrounding classic cars does not disappear.

The car world is undergoing seismic technical changes, attitudes to driving and the ambition to own a car, particularly amongst the Millennial generation, is changing too.

StarterMotor believes that the historic car world can provide a real haven in the digital age, through enjoyment, adventure and community. It’s a place to belong; where friendship, common interest and mechanical fun are self-evident.

StarterMotor is determined to ensure that young people are welcomed into the historic motoring community by supporting them in their ambitions and promoting access to classic cars.
