During the course of the weekend motor sport celebrities and legends will be on hand with talks and presentations, these include Sir Stirling Moss, Tiff Needell and Ben Collins (the original Stig). Other attractions include the Top Gear and Formula 1 simulators, plus their are a number of food courts set among the Battersea Evolution venue. The UK motor show has long since gone with Geneva, Paris and Frankfurt being the European hot spots to see all of the worlds finest offerings. In the UK we have more and more car events going on which are more themed to racing and celebrating the golden age of motoring, these include Goodwood and Brooklands so to see a modern array of vehicles on display could ignite a resurgence in the London Motor show.

On display dealers represented Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Morgan and MG among other marques. HRH Prince Michael of Kent officially unveiled the show to the motoring press late afternoon prior to a VIP evening preview to invited guests. Although the press preview was busy it gave a great opportunity to get up close to all of these cars, the displays are well spaced out and I can see next year more manufacturers getting involved, the big plus point is the Battersea Park location and not being situated on an industrial site.

Tickets are fro £15 and children under 11 go in for free with each accompanying adult so combine it with a day out in London and its good value all round.
