eBay Motors has challenged TV mechanic Edd China and BTCC star Tom Onslow Cole at Snetterton racetrack.

The dynamic duo are tasked with turning a milk float into a race car using only parts and accessories sourced from eBay Motors.

The aim of the game, says eBay, is to showcase the breadth and quality of parts available through the site – which is also home to 18 million listings and 250,000 cars and motorbikes for sale.

Over the next month China and the eBay BTCC team will transform the milk float, with the challenge culminating in September when Tom will take the wheel for the first time.

eBay Motors users can vote for the parts they want to see on the car, which will be on display at the final round of the BTCC at Silverstone on 7th October.

Edd China said: “This is a really tough challenge, but I am very excited to be working with Tom and the guys from the eBay Motors BTCC team to build this vehicle.”

Tom Onslow-Cole, eBay Motors team driver, added: “I have never been involved in anything like this before and can’t wait to get started. Having driven the milk float around Snetterton it is clear that we have a massive amount of work on our hands. We have got some great engineers working on the car and I am eager to see what is in store for the final challenge.”
