A week on from another amazing Autosport International Show, I feel extremely positive and excited for the 2018 motorsport season. It was great to see all the race teams and exhibitors promoting their race series and machinery.
95,000 motorsport fans visited the show over the 4 days. This is an increase of 12% on last years attendance.
At the show motorsport fans were treated to launches of the new 2018 FIA World Rally Championship cars of M-Sport Ford, Hyundai Motorsport, Toyota Gazoo Racing and Citroen Total Abu Dhabi WRT.
Ginetta launched its 650bhp LMP1 World Endurance car.
The Ferrari stand was packed with fans viewing the F2004, SF70H f1 cars, 2017 LMGTE Pro World Endurance Championship winning AF Corse 488 GTE and the FXX-K Evo.
BTCC was celebrating its 60th year and had a display of touring cars through the years.
Invictus Games Racing launched their specially designed Jaguars racing cars to take part in the 2018 British GT Championship.
The Live Action Arena, hosted by David Croft, had its sideways action with Drift cars, Rallycross and Ginetta Racing.
2000 NASCAR Winston Cup Series winner Bobby Labonte drove a NASCAR American cup car.
