Based at the historic site of RAF Bibury, The Classic Motor Hub has something for everyone on our five-acre site dedicated to classic motoring; visit our events or view and purchase our classic cars, bikes, modern high performance machines and all manner of automotive ephemera. We’re open 9am to 5pm throughout the week and on select Sundays for events.
The Classic Motor Hub’s home has an illustrious past as an RAF Fighter Command base during World War Two. Initially commandeered as a Relief Landing Ground (RLG) for the nearby RAF South Cerney flying school in 1940, it was soon used as a fully-fledged fighter station. It helped to protect Cheltenham and the area south of Birmingham, housing No 87 Squadron RAF (Hurricanes) and No 92 Squadron (Spitfires).
By the end of 1944, the site had outlived its usefulness as an operational airfield, and RAF Bibury was transferred to Maintenance Command and used for storage until 1950. Today the site’s history is still very evident: The Cotswold Collectors hangar is an original ‘blister’ aircraft shelter and much of the original aircraft hardstanding remains in use for our classic events today.
