Set­ting up the sea­son ahead

Autosport In­ter­na­tional lifts the lid on the ex­cite­ment to come

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

Birm­ing­ham might not be to every­one’s taste, but the Na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre is the place to be this week­end for Autosport In­ter­na­tional. All of mo­tor­sport’s great and good will be there, and it is the chance to whet the ap­petite un­til the tracks and stages are alive again.

What I par­tic­u­larly en­joy at the event is the prom­ises that are put on the line. New driver and team com­bi­na­tions will be re­vealed, and there will be bold prophe­cies about the po­ten­tial in the sea­son ahead. The ex­cite­ment lev­els reach fever pitch, but it is al­ways worth tak­ing some with a pinch of salt...pop by the Kwik­fit British Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship pre­sented by Mo­tor­sport News stand in Hall 3 to hear the tin-top aces put it on the line.

The launch of the World Rally Cham­pi­onship on Satur­day will be the first chance that the pub­lic have had to be part of the of­fi­cial re­veal. The cat­e­gory’s stars will be avail­able for fans to meet and share the prospects for the cam­paign to come. That is a real bonus but, no mat­ter what your area of in­ter­est, there is al­ways some­thing to dis­cover at the show. Matt James, Ed­i­tor (Twit­ter: @Mat­tjm­news)
