London Classic Car Show hits mark
For fans of motorsport in particular, the inaugural London Classic Car Show already looks poised to become a regular treat to mark down on the calendar.
The three-day event hosted at ExCel in London’s Docklands was put together by Brand Events, the creators of the Top Gear Live show and CarFest, the BBC Children in Need fundraiser.
It was a promising start for the show and the organisers seem to have struck gold with a nice variety of exhibits such as a Motorsport Hall of Fame, Le Mans icons section and the ‘Cars That Changed The World’ area devised by Top Gear presenter James May, which featured a typically tongue-in-cheek finale.
Another eye-catching display at the London Classic Car show came in the shape of a collection of cars, some personally owned, which was selected by Formula One designer Adrian Newey.
And throw in the Grand Avenue – a kind of ‘Car Catwalk’ – that showcased some of the classics that paraded up and down a makeshift strip of racetrack throughout the show and it pretty much ticked all the boxes for the motor enthusiast.
