Nigel Mansell to speak at Historic Motorsport International

7 February 2018

Historic Motorsport International (HMI) has signed up Nigel Mansell CBE, the 1992 FIA Formula One World Champion and renowned motoring TV personalities Vicki Butler-Henderson and Quentin Willson to speak at this year’s event.

All three will be interviewed by well-known host Henry Hope-Frost in the Supagard Theatre.

HMI, now in its second year, the show will now be in the same hall within the exhibition centre to join its sister event The London Classic Car Show and take place at London’s ExCel between 15-18 February.

This paddock will be home to six unique racing cars. These icons will be on permanent public display when not being fired up for eye-catching and thunderous parades on central The Grand Avenue, the show’s revolutionary in-door automotive catwalk.

Other innovations planned for HMI in 2018 include a special hospitality hub open exclusively to exhibitors and their guests, as well as a special display area dedicated to The International Guild of Specialist Engineers.

Companies including TIGOSE Pavilion include Crosthwaite and Gardner, Haynes Motor Museum, Renaissance Classics, Tandler Precision and Classic Performance Engineering will exhibit at the show, alongside Cosworth, the company that created the most victorious engine in F1 history, as well as Dunlop Motorsport, JE Pistons and The Crosslé Car Company, the world’s longest-established constructor of racing cars and the company that provided a young Nigel Mansell with his early wins in Formula Ford. Coys will also be returning with an important auction of sports, sports racing and competition cars.

“This year’s HMI is clearly building on the huge success of last February’s launch show,” reported event director Alexia Antikides.

“Its expansion – together with so many exciting new innovations – further reflects HMI’s position in showcasing the UK’s leading role in the world of classic motor racing and rallying. HMI has already become the leading platform for engineering and preparation experts, event organisers and promoters and participants. With so much great content now confirmed – topped by the appearance of Nigel Mansell, one of this country’s best-ever F1 champions – next month’s show is going to be a fantastic start to what promises to be another blockbuster season of historic motorsport.”
