Our inspiration

So, why did we decide to create Re:Fuel? Well we’ve been big fans of “Caffeine and Machine” up in Warwickshire for a long time. It’s a unique venue in the UK, and a magical wonderland of automotive heritage and modern machines. Well, we thought the Southwest needed somewhere spectacular for automotive nuts to call home too – so here we are!

For anyone that’s already been to Re:Fuel and hasn’t been to (or perhaps heard of) Caffeine and Machine, we thoroughly recommend heading up to Ettington in Warwickshire and checking it out. You won’t regret it.

There will only ever be one Caffeine and Machine, so we’re not just out to create another – we want to let the petrol-head community of the Southwest put their own spin on it. If you have any ideas or suggestions for our vision then please do let us know on info@re-fuel.co.uk.

The video below has been our inspiration – we’ve watched it many times, and will undoubtedly watch it many more. What Phil McGovern has created in Caffeine and Machine is absolutely phenomenal – and we only hope we can create something half as successful…

So what are our plans from here? Well, the enthusiasm and feedback we’ve seen so far has absolutely blown us away. The resounding message was that the Southwest has needed a venue like Re:Fuel for a long time, so we will now continue with our aim to gradually build up to being open both Saturday and Sunday, every weekend.

We hold an Open Day once a month – so we hope to see you at one soon! Keep an eye on our social media and web blog for news and updates.

Finally, if we’re going to successfully create this amazing venue for everyone to benefit from, we need you to help us spread the word. Please do tell your fellow enthusiasts and help us start, what we hope will become, a fantastic open, welcoming venue in the Southwest for all to enjoy!

…and don’t forget to go and checkout Caffeine and Machine if you haven’t already!
