Based at the historic site of RAF Bibury in the heart of the Cotswolds, The Classic Motor Hub has something for everyone on our five-acre site dedicated to classic motoring; we’re experts in sales, storage and transport of classic cars, bikes and modern high performance machines. Our Showrooms are open Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm and 10am – 3pm on Saturdays. The Hub Coffee House and Shop are open Monday – Saturday, 10am – 3pm 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 a Relief Landing Ground for the nearby RAF South Cerney flying school in 1940, it was soon used as a fully-fledged fighter station. It helped 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 evident: the Hangar is an original ‘blister’ aircraft shelter and much of the original hardstanding remains in use for our classic events today.

Max has been involved with classic cars since early childhood, very quickly accompanying his Father to many Rallies and Concours d’Elégance. Having completed work experience at Bonhams’ Motoring Department in London, Max went back to his hometown of Geneva to obtain a Bachelor and a Master of Law. He worked for several years as Legal Advisor in an international company and he even trained as a lawyer, however he much preferred the sound of classic engines to the stiffness of the Swiss Courts, and so joined The Classic Motor Hub at the beginning of 2021. When not working, Max can usually be found blasting around in his 1948 Bristol 400 or dismantling the family’s 1959 Facel Vega HK500.
