The British Motor Show is back.

2008 was the last time the British International Motor Show took place, at Excel in London. This year’s motor show will have more car brands represented than at any UK car event since 2008.

Plenty to see and experience

Over 25 manufacturers are to be represented at the show. There will be at least three exclusive model reveals, with the Show being seen as an international event with a high profile.

Most of the major brands on sale in the UK will be represented. There will be more than 20 cars available to test drive live at the event, plus a dazzling array of classics and supercars .

More than 150 exhibitors will bed there, and plenty of new products and services being unveiled.The Live Arena – featuring stunt shows, car reviews, supercars and more – will be hosted again by Wheeler Dealer, Mike Brewer. Mike will be supported by petrolhead and Olympic silver-medal sprinter, Iwan Thomas. The Family Zone will also be extended in 2022 to feature a unique car-themed escape room, as well as popular features from 2021 including car wrapping and The Racing Bug’s racing simulator.

A day out

The British Motor Show will be over 18-21 August at Farnborough International. Building on the success of its scheduling at last year’s show,  Ticket prices are held from 2021 at £18.50 each, or £37 for a family of four.

Perfect past performers

Alternatively, why not grab a ticket for the 2022 Hagerty Festival of the Unexceptional. It takes place on Saturday 30th July at Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire.

Festival of the Unexceptional showcases long forgotten ordinary classics of the late 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s. It remains the only concours where a sporty or luxury model is rejected over a base model for a spot on the judging lawn.

If you remember a time when windows were wound up and down, when central locking meant leaning over to unlock the door from the inside, and when a passenger door mirror was optional, this is the show for you.

10 cars have already been announced as taking part in the 2022 concours including a Fiat Panda Italia, Ford Fiesta Fanfare, and a Mazda 1800.

There will also be a number of special attractions too and extra entertainment. Away from the testosterone fuelled manufacturer showcasing, this event bring you real history, fascinating stories along with that nostalgic blast from the past that we can all readily relate to.

TV Wheeler Dealer Mike Brewer will also be attending this show.

Plenty of exhibitors, a children’s play area and hundreds of unexceptional cars to view in outside of the 50 chosen to be a part of the concours judging.
