Petrolheads Welcome is a free web portal designed to help Petrolheads find venues that their cars would enjoy. It’s a site that has been built by car lovers for car lovers.

The idea is a simple one: the website lists hotels, B&Bs and self-catering venues in the UK and across Europe that are recommended by Petrolheads like us. 
Director, Andrew Fawkes, said “Five of us came together to build the website following many shared drives in the UK and abroad. The planning effort required to organise the stop-overs for a European road trip is considerable and sometimes off-putting. Not anymore!”
Fellow director, Paul Gerring, added “Whether you’re a lone traveller or a club organising a tour, you can be sure that the venues on are suitable for your car. We all share the mantra: if my car’s happy, I’m happy!”

The site is free to join and free to use. It also includes places of interest (labelled ‘Visit’) to factor-in to your tour schedule or day out. That’s where we come in…

Holden Vintage & Classic are listed on the site (see here) along with our support of Bromyard Speed Festival and its breakfast meetings (here).
Petrolheads Welcome has been promoting events such as these up and down the country, all designed to help us get our classics out on the road.

Andrew continues: “It’s important that we use and enjoy our classic vehicles, especially given the current political focus”. See Andrew’s blog here.
