Antiques Road Trip is back - featuring our cars

The Great Escape Classic Car Hire Morris Minor convertible based in the East Midlands is the star of BBC2 this week.  It features in the second series of BBC2's popular Antiques Road Trip programme aired 31st January to 4th February 5.15pm to 6pm.

The Antiques Road Trip production team used the Morris for filming between May and August 2010.  The car was chosen because of its quirky looks, high standard of quality and bright paintwork.  The car performed (almost) fautlessly over several thousand miles in the BBC's service - the only hiccups were a faulty starter motor (fixed overnight) and damage inflicted by a bus. 

Great Escape Classic Car Hire worked with the production team throughout the filming to help deliver and collect the car.  We also had to a work to an inevitably constantly changing schedule, coordinating our regional sites in Yorkshire, Suffolk, Dorset and Worcestershire to provide the car for the production team.
