Autosport International Show 2011 – What Better Way To Start The New Season!

Autosport, the leading motor racing magazine organises and sponsors one of the biggest motorsport shows of the year every January.  The Autosport International Show is held at the NEC in Birmingham, England and is seen traditionally as “the start of the motor racing season”.

For 2011, the show promises to be bigger and better than ever, and just for you readers on The F1Fanatics Blog we have a special preview of the event for you!

In addition to the masses of motorsport teams, clubs and suppliers that will be showing displays of their equipment and cars over the 4 days in Birmingham, there is a fantastic chance to meet some of your heroes.  In the past such names as Murray Walker, Jenson Button, Andy Priaulx, James Thompson, Gary Paffett and Sir Stirling Moss have been in attendance.  Already confirmed for the 2011 show are Walker, Martin Brundle and Jake Humphrey from BBC F1 and there will be many more drivers happy to come and have autographs and photos with the fans.

On top of this, many of the stars will be taking part in the Fifth Gear Live action arena show, included with the tickets its a chance to see different cars from all forms of motorsport take to the indoor arena track.  This year Tiff Nedell and Jason Plato (BTCC Champion) will be running the excellent event.

Alongside the regular Formula One paddock which is a chance to see all of the 2010 F1 cars, this year there will be a special McLaren F1 display so you can see the likes of Mika Hakkinen and Niki Lauda’s cars from back in the day.  Recently confirmed was an exact replica of Sebastian Vettel’s Red Bull RB6 world championship winning car, in its overall form so you can see what drove the young German to the title in Abu Dhabi.  It will even feature their trick diffuser but without the mechanics hiding it!

Last years championship winning Brawn GP 01 was a big attraction, Vettel's Red Bull will be this year too

All in all it is a fantastic event, one which I attend yearly.  If you can make it, check out: www.autosportinternational.com for tickets or if not stay tuned on The F1Fanatics Blog for many features before the show and a big summary of all of the events after we spend a whole day there looking for stars and their cars!
