The restoration is the subject of a one-off special of the duo's car programme, 'For the Love of Cars.' The Lotus will be entered into a race against other classic cars and Phil is looking forward to the chance to indulge in of his passions. He told the Hillngdon and Uxbridge Times,
We’re filming For the Love of Cars. We’re doing a one-off special where we are restoring a car before entering it into the Silverstone Classic at the end of July. It will probably be Ant doing most of the work on the day – he’s the mechanic – and then me just enjoying myself.
It’s a real family day out. It’s a great place for kids who are into cars to come and see these motors. I would have loved to have come and seen something like this as a kid. It’s a really good day out, hopefully come July the weather will be a lot warmer. It’s the sort of thing where you can go watch for a bit and then go off and have a bite to eat, a little snooze, and then come and watch some more racing. There’s a whole range of vehicles. You could see it on TV but unless you’re actually here watching these classic cars race at the home of racing at Silverstone, then you can’t really get a taste of it.
