BBC Radio Suffolk Interview With Luke Deal

Today we had Luke Deal from BBC Radio Suffolk come down to join us at our Hanger at Bentwaters. Luke popped down to chat with our director Craig about our Morris Minor, our raffles and all things classic cars! Luke is a classic car enthusiast himself and was keen to have a go in our Morris Minor. Take a look at the behind the scenes photos and interview below.

Luke talks about his fascination for Morris Minors as his father ‘had many’ he tells us; “my father had many a Morris Minor so it’s a privilege to be here this morning to find out more about this classic car.”

Luke took a look around our little Morris and remarked “Something that strikes me is that It’s in immaculate condition for something that’s so old”.

We love getting involved with local businesses and people so it was great to have Luke down at the hangar today.

Behind The Scenes: 1949 Morris Minor MM ‘Lowlight’

In February, we shot this characterful Morris Minor ‘Lowlight’, which you may recognise as out current competition car. We were lucky with the weather as a warm late winter sun graced the skies over Bentwaters RAF base. Ellie and Freddie headed down to our hanger to start photographing and filming our beloved Morris in preparation to be launched on the website.

Alongside our stationary photos, we always capture in-motion shots of the car driving, as well as videos to capture the spirit of the motor.

Detailed shots of the exterior and interior are captured in several locations, giving the team plenty of content to post over the course of the competition.

We were lucky to have our presenter Charlotte join us for the shoot as well, allowing Ellie to snap some portraits of her with our characterful moggy. Charlotte selected her outfit carefully to compliment our motor and set the scene of a sunny roadtrip.

One of our skilled technicians, Lydia, a vintage lifestyle enthusiast joined us on the shoot as well for some portraits. With a carefully selected colour co-ordinating outfit, Lydia perfectly captured the era and charm of our Morris.
