Autosport at Birmingham N.E.C. Sunday 16th January
David Coulthard and Mark Webber confirmed for Autosport International.
The Faces Of F1 :
- Live Action Arena
If you're into live racing action, then this is the place to see it. Situated within one hall at the NEC, our 5,000 seater grandstand allows you to see an array of motor racing at its best. This is the fourth most watched motorsport event in the UK and will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. (not recommended for children under the age of 4).
Stunts, stars and smoke lined up for the Live Action Arena.
Meet the stars in the 5,000 seat Live Action Arena, a show featuring a host of thrilling high-speed, tyre-smoking live stunts and celebrities. Reverse spins, handbrake parking and car 'dance' routines will all be features of the gripping performance.
- F1 Racing Grid :
The Autosport International show may provide the only time for the public to see Formula 1 cars in this country due to the lose of the British Grand Prix from the racing calendar. The spectacular F1 Racing Car Gallery in Hall 9 is sure to prove a huge crowd-puller with the entire F1 grid being displayed at 90 degrees.
F1 Racing magazine will have their video screen providing the best in F1 action and bringing you all the sights and sounds of the sport. There will also be an authentic F1 winner's podium with the traditional chequered background where you can live out every F1 fans dream of standing on the top of the rostrum with champagne and a trophy and having your photograph taken for posterity.
Once you've collected your photograph, if you have a AAA pass for the show (see details below), you can go to the dedicated signing area where you can collect autographs from drivers from all disciplines of motorsport. Add to this the attraction of two Page 3 girls, Michelle Marsh and Lucy Pinder, and the F1 Racing Car Gallery looks like a winner.
- Autosport Central Stage :
As a core part of the show the Autosport Magazine Central stage features guest appearances by all the top drivers and launches of new cars. Last years guests included Jenson Button, Petter Solberg, and Justin Wilson, along with many other past/present F1 drivers. You will also be able to see the magazine editorial team in action as they interview the hottest bods in the industry. We've have competitions, audience participation and games all up for grabs.
