Art of Motoring

The Royal Automobile Club (RAC) annual Art of Motoring exhibition, Britain’s premier event featuring motoring and motor racing paintings and sculpture, has returned for 2021.

The Royal Automobile Club (RAC) annual Art of Motoring exhibition, Britain’s premier event featuring motoring and motor racing paintings and sculpture, has returned for 2021.

After last year’s virtual showcase, for 2021 it is back to being a ‘proper’ physical show, this year as part of London Motor Week.  It is open to members and guests from Monday 1 November until Saturday 6 November.

For the first time all the works on display can be viewed and purchased via a dedicated website.

As ever, there are many different subjects, styles and choice of materials, including everything from traditional oil and watercolour paints to 3D printing. For the first time, QR codes will be displayed so viewers can easily download information about each artist and their works.    

The 16 artists exhibiting are some of the top names of the genre, including Tim Layzell, Barry Rowe, John Ketchell, Paul Dove and Roy Putt, plus sculptors Johnny Ambrose and Robin Bark. Other regulars include watercolourist Neil Collins, the ‘painting vicar’ Adam Gompertz, Martin Tomlinson and Simon Britnell.

Heading the first-time exhibitors list is former Le Mans winner and Grand Prix driver Stefan Johansson. The Swedish star, who raced in F1 for teams such as Ferrari and McLaren, took up painting after his friend Elio de Angelis was killed in a testing accident at the Paul Ricard circuit in 1986.

The exhibition, which was first held in 2015, has been curated on behalf of the Club by Andrew Marriott of Pit Lane Productions and Rupert Whyte of Historic Car Art.

“Britain has more professional motoring and motor-racing artists than any other nation,” said Jeremy Vaughan, Head of Motoring at the RAC, “and as collectors of motoring art for more than a century, the Club is delighted to showcase and help.”
