Model David Gandy spotted at the Oxfordshire Motor Show

FASHION model David Gandy was among celebrities who attended a car show in Oxfordshire over the weekend, despite torrential rain.

Mr Gandy, known for his work as a Dolce&Gabbana and M&S model, was joined by actress Emily Atack known for her role in the E4 comedy series The Inbetweeners and polar explorer Ben Saunders.

The three attended the first Mollie’s Miglia at Mollie’s Motel and Diner in Buckland.

The event was the first of what will become a regular experience throughout the year, inspired by the iconic Italian ‘Millie Miglia’ – a motorsport endurance race undertaken in classic cars.

The event was organized in partnership with The Gentleman Racer and it featured a number of rare vintage vehicles, racing cars and motorbikes that visitors had the chance to try out.

Mollie’s Miglia started at the Bremont Watches headquarters in Henley-on-Thames and covered a 70 mile stretch to Buckland.

Cars on the program included an Aston Martin Vanquish 25 CD, Lamborghini Performante and Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.

The famous model, from Essex, tried her luck in a Jaguar F-Pace SVR while The Inbetweeners star Ms Atack drove a Morgan Aero 4.

Tom Howard, Founder and CCO of The Gentleman Racer, shared photos from the event and commented on the success: “It’s safe to say that the cars taking part in the Mollie’s Miglia were quite varied.

“Great company, dirty cars and not a single ego in sight.”

Mr Howard added that the motor show was ‘refreshing’ and promised car enthusiasts they wouldn’t have to wait long as details of future events will be revealed very soon.

After the ride, guests and celebrities had lunch at Mollie’s restaurant and spent the night, where they chose from a menu of restaurant favorites.
