One of the most dramatic decades in Formula 1 history – the 1990s, when giants of the sport such as Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansell and Michael Schumacher fought for championship honours – will be celebrated at Historic Motorsport International (HMI), the brand new show dedicated to historic motorsport in all its forms.
A number of machines of the era, cars now owned and still raced by members of the FORCE organisation will be on display as HMI kicks off the 2017 historic motorsport season. To add to the atmosphere, the cars will be presented in a recreation of a typical F1 pit of the period.
David McLaughlin, founder of FORCE, said:
“The huge crowds seen at leading classic motor race events such as the Silverstone Classic show just how popular this branch of our sport has become.
“This is reflected in the welcome arrival of Historic Motorsport International… and it’s a masterstroke to link it to the London Classic Car Show which has proven to be very successful at attracting large numbers of the right people to ExCeL.”
FORCE joins a growing number of organisations active in historic motorsport that will be exhibiting at HMI. These include Motor Racing Legends and the Classic Sports Car Club while the Historic Sport Car Club (HSCC) will be celebrating 50 years of Formula Ford.
Other specialists already signed up for the show include Dunlop Motorsport, Cosworth, Taylor & Crawley and Duncan Hamilton & Co. In total there will be more than 100 competition cars offered for sale at the show.
A central feature at HMI will be the inaugural Historic Motorsport Conference Programme. Hosted by broadcaster and journalist Henry Hope-Frost on both Thursday and Friday, the public forum will examine a wide variety of controversial topics including the use of modern technology in classic race and rally cars, driving standards and sponsorship.
Held at ExCeL London, on 23-26 February, with access to both shows included in the entry price. Historic Motorsport International will open its doors at 10am on Thursday 23 February, while the London Classic Car Show will burst into life at 3pm that afternoon.
Tickets to Historic Motorsport International 2017 are now available from the show website – historicmotorsportinternational.co.uk – and start at £24 for single adult entry (£27 on the door on the day).
