After announcing its long-awaited return in 2020, The British Motor Show team continue to reveal more detail behind the rebirth of the show.
As the Classic Halls start to fill with great content, the team behind the show are putting out a call to all classic car owners and clubs to display at the show.
A key part of the show will be the “Celebration of 100 years of the Motor Show with Snap-on”. This display will take pride of place as visitors arrive and will feature a selection of the key stars of 100 years of the British Motor Show, from 1920 to 2020. The show organisers are particularly interested in hearing from any owners with cars that were originally displayed at a British Motor Show.
The new show aims to appeal to all motoring fans, from technology fans and new car buyers to the classic car enthusiasts. The Classic Halls will have some amazing cars on display, focusing especially on the cars that made the British Motor Show great.
Not only will owners clubs have the opportunity to display cars, there will also be a chance to get their star cars into the Live Arena during a number of classic car parades over the four days. The parades will be themed by marque, country of origin or simply by type.
An owners enclosure will be set up to offer display space to those who may not be members of marque specific clubs, and all classic cars featured at the show will receive a certificate of display and be entered into a “Car Of The Show” competition, to be judged by the celebrities and visitors.
The Classic Car Halls will also feature a huge automotive marketplace and a “soon to be unveiled” live build element. Motorsport and Supercars will also feature at the show and on the live stage, which will be hosted by celebrity guests.
