Morris Lubricants ambassador Rebecca Jackson offers a guiding hand to car buying in new TV series.

Choosing between a modern vehicle or a classic car can be a difficult decision. The benefits of the latest technology versus the beauty of a classic. It can be a choice between head and heart.

Thankfully, Morris Lubricants ambassador Rebecca Jackson is on hand, presenting a new series on TV channel Dave where, together with Elo King (the owner and founder of The London Motor Museum), she will guide confused buyers to find their ideal car. Modern Wheels or Classic Steals will air for 20 episodes and promises to be entertaining television.

The channel has picked Rebecca to help front its new automotive show due to her extensive expertise, not just in her racing career but also her knowledge of the new and used car market. With 11 years running a car sales business, which she built singlehanded from scratch, together with extensive vehicle reviewing experience – over 40 brand new cars every year since 2011 – the programme is certainly in safe hands.

“I’m very excited to have a show on Dave!” says Rebecca. “Shooting 20 episodes was a lot of fun, Dave is a great channel, and I can’t wait to see the results of our hard work.

“The entire show was great to film, and I loved every minute working on it. I really enjoy giving people ‘Rebecca Racer Hot Laps’, and I was lucky enough to give our buyer a few of these in a Lamborghini Gallardo. She absolutely loved it! It’s really rewarding seeing and hearing the pleasure someone has when I am driving them fast on the circuit.”


This year has been very busy for Rebecca. “It’s been a great year so far, and I have very much enjoyed working with all the different companies in the Rebecca Racer family of brands,” she comments. “As well as events with Morris Lubricants, I have shot car and road safety videos with Pertemps Driver Training, M6 Toll videos and am working with Tropic Soul promoting healthy tropical smoothies. I’ve also shot a large proportion of the 40 video reviews I am doing for ‘What Car?”

One small part of this hectic year, and Rebecca’s work with Morris Lubricants was a visit to the company’s headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Shrewsbury. There, she took part in a meeting with the company’s sales force, seeing the company’s sense of fun working through every vein of its operations.

“The amount of laughter was certainly a standout moment from this meeting!” Rebecca says. “It was a serious meeting, and everyone means business, but if you can laugh and be positive throughout this, then you are definitely winning. And the Morris Lubricants team was a delight to spend the day with; there were great ideas, everyone had a voice yet this was interjected with laughter and jokes. I would call this the perfect atmosphere!

“I have very much enjoyed working with Morris Lubricants so far. I love seeing the logo on my race cars, thoroughly enjoyed giving the talk at Automechanika Birmingham and it was great to take part in a charity event showing off Modern Herbie. We still have lots more that we are doing as well.”

The future

While some may look to slow down after a busy year, Rebecca is focusing on doing even more in the years to come. Alongside another series of Modern Wheels or Classic Steals to film, before the first series has even aired, In addition to this, she is also talking to the production company about another television project, meaning she will be on our screens for a long time to come.

Alongside this, there is more work with What Car? and an inspirational range of children’s products and race retreats to be launched. And of course, there is a continued relationship with Morris Lubricants. As Rebecca says: “It’s exciting times!”

Modern Wheels or Classic Steals is on Mondays at 8pm on Dave and available to catch-up on UKTV Play
