Jason Cardy DeLorean The team at Venues Event Management (VEM) have gone back to the future with Great Escape Cars.

Great Escape Classic Car Hire visited VEM’s Wiltshire HQ on 12 June to showcase some of their classic cars including the DeLorean DMC-12. With its gull-wing doors a modified version of the car became iconic for its appearance as a time machine in the Back to the Future film franchise.

The VEM team also experienced the supercharged Jaguar XKR.

"We are always looking for innovative ideas for our events and this was a great opportunity for the employees at Venues Event Management to gain hands on experience of driving one of these fabulous cars. There is nothing like experiencing something yourself to be able to sell this as you can relay your personal experiences on to potential clients," says VEM Chief Executive  Anita Lowe.

"For us it is important to work together with agencies such as Venues Event Management as event organisers don’t tend to think of this as an additional feature to their event. Its a great experience not only for drivers, but non drivers also as they can be taken out and experience the thrill," says Managing Director of Great Escape Classic Car, Graham Eason.
