Autosport In­ter­na­tional in­tro­duc­tion

Autosport (UK) - - CONTENTS -

This week the 29th edi­tion of Autosport In­ter­na­tional takes place at the NEC in Birm­ing­ham. Since its 1991 inception, the show has gath­ered the en­tire spec­trum of mo­tor­sport – from karts and oval rac­ing through to ral­ly­ing and, of course, For­mula 1 – all in one place. On Satur­day, the World Rally Cham­pi­onship will launch in front of the pub­lic for the first time at the show. Mclaren will present its all­new F1 driver line-up, Lando Nor­ris and Car­los Sainz Jr. Gamers can fight for a share of $100,000, plus W Series en­ters the lime­light as it seeks to break down the bar­ri­ers to greater fe­male par­tic­i­pa­tion in mo­tor­sport. Alan Hyde, guru of the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car pad­dock, who will take the reins as host of the Autosport Stage this year, says: “I know the cal­i­bre of guests Autosport In­ter­na­tional at­tracts from around the world, so I know I’m in for an en­ter­tain­ing and star-stud­ded ride.” The four-day ex­trav­a­ganza opens its doors to­day (Thurs­day). The first two days are ded­i­cated to the mo­tor­sport in­dus­try, be­fore the pub­lic is wel­comed on Satur­day and Sun­day. Here’s a taste of what’s to come from Europe’s big­gest mo­tor­sport show.
