London historic motorsport show

ExCeL, close by London City Airport (but on the Beckton DLR line), is to host an historic motorsport event on 23/26 February 2017. It will run alongside the existing London Classic Car Show. (Also see motoring update in this issue)  

The show is being promoted by Brand Events, the company behind a raft of successful motoring gatherings including CarFest, Top Gear Live and the recent Ignition Festival of Motoring.

Reflecting the UK’s leading role in the world of historic motorsport and rallying, Historic Motorsport International will be a platform for engineering and preparation experts, event organisers, promoters and suppliers.  

It is expected there will be up to 100 competition cars for sale from leading specialist dealers while other exhibitors will include motorsport clubs, governing bodies, officials, sponsors and media owners.
"Historic Motorsport International will feature many of the most iconic historic competition cars for sale and blend the business-to-business, competitor and enthusiast aspects of the buoyant historic motorsport scene, from classic Formula Ford and historic rallying through to period Formula One, GTs, Sportscars and Prototypes,” said show director Ian France.

“Whether your interest is in the many fiercely-competitive UK domestic championships or marquee events such as Silverstone Classic, Spa Six Hours or the Historic Ypres Rally, this exciting new event will reflect your tastes and opportunities to get closer to the sport.”
