Race organisers Motor Racing Legends have been announced as one of the first confirmed attendees at Historic Motorsport International, which opens at ExCel, London, from 23rd to the 26th of February 2017. The new event runs alongside the popular London Classic Car Show with visitors gaining entry to both shows on the same ticket.
“Establishing a London-based premium historic motorsport show is long overdue in my opinion,” said Motor Racing Legends club chairman Duncan Wiltshire, “and running it alongside the already successful London Classic Car Show will offer a perfect opportunity to showcase the wonderful range of Classic Motorsport options to a fresh audience of classic car enthusiasts. We are looking forward to seeing how the show develops.”
Historic Motorsport International aims to provide a platform for engineering and preparation experts, event organisers, promoters and suppliers reflecting the UK’s leading role in the world of historic motorsport and rallying. The show will also include a Historic Motorsport Conference, hosted by broadcaster Henry Hope-Frost.
Motor Racing Legends joins a number of other high-profile companies and organisations who have already taken the opportunity to exhibit including competition car sales specialists Taylor & Crawley and Duncan Hamilton & Co., the official distributor for Dunlop historic racing tyres, Dunlop Motorsport and Motorsport publishers Octane and Historic Racing Technology.
Promotors Brand Events announced the new show last week, the company already hosting a number of successful motoring events including CarFest, Top Gear Live and the London Classic Car show as well as their new IGNITION Festival of Motoring in Glasgow.
Show director Ian France commented “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.”
The HMI show will be held at ExCeL London, on 23-26 February, with access to both shows included in the entry price which starts at £24 (advance ticket prince or £27 on the door.) Historic Motorsport International will open its doors at 10am on Thursday 23rd of February, while the London Classic Car Show will start at 3pm that afternoon.
