Ideas for Father’s Day presents.
This website is all about gifts for petrolheads, for people who love cars and driving so our suggestions will not include all the usual things like mugs with ‘I love you Daddy!’ printed on them. Here we will focus on presents that Dads who love their cars will appreciate.
Where are our gift suggestions sourced from?
All the gifts you see below (except the Silverstone tickets) can be bought from Amazon UK so you can buy with confidence.

Take the old man to Silverstone, the heart of British motorsport, for the Historic Sports Car Club’s Silverstone International Trophy. It’s only £10 per adult to get in if you buy in advance (or £15 on the gate) and children get in free. You also get free entry into the paddock!

Father’s Day Gift idea #2 – A Driving Experience.
