This post is the second of three that will feature the cars of various motor sports through the years and different types of racing groups. The centre of the hall had a temporary road which split the hall into two halves. The road was opened to cross via a few gates and a bridge over the middle that was accessed by the VIP area. Various cars were allowed to drive up and down the road to let the spectators see and hear the cars.
The pinnacle of racing is arguably the Formula 1 series, although not quite as popular in the USA as the Indy Car series. This first car is one of Michael Schumacher’s F1 race cars. He won his first world championship with the Benetton team before moving onto Ferrari. Formula 1 has been a sport I have followed since the mid 80’s and that is little clue for the next post also in this picture below as well.
Sorry for the quality of some of the pictures as I was zoomed in on the large one.
Other single seat series
The Brutal Group B rally cars were often classed as “Too fast to Race” and were banned from the Rally series. These cars command huge sums of money now but could be picked up for the cost of a second-hand family car at the time!
“Normal” Rally cars of the yester years.
The “Touring Cars” series
The sleek endurance cars.
Some sports cars ( a couple from the previous post also cross into this category.
My next post is the post I am most excited about.
My last Clue: “5“

Great collect of photos. I really like the shots of the formula 1 car. Thanks for posting, I’ll be back to check out more of your work.
Thanks for the kind comments Alec, much appreciated.
Nice post! Someday I’ll make it to the other side of the pond for this show.
It’s a long way to come and the show is tiny compared to some of the shows there in the USA. But, it’s a good show.
Wonderful pics thanks!! Stunning F1 cars indeed!!
Thank you. It was a great day, and there is more tomorrow. (F1 video in the post too)
Looks like a great show. Fantastic photos. That 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO looks like it has the styling of a Jaguar XKE.
Thanks Tim, the GTO is and has to be one of the most beautiful cars ever made and is similar to the Jag like you say, as was the styling trend then. Im surprised this was only up for £1m so it has to be a replica as the originals go for an eady £30m to £50m.
This must have been an absolutely amazing car show. This is so wonderful. The F1 cars have always fascinated me, but here in the US we don’t have as much exposure to them as in Europe. Indy cars are somewhat similar, but not quite. Anyway, thanks for the wonderful photos. Anxious to see your next installment.
Thanks Tim, it was indeed a great show and the wife actually enjoys this one too. She is even talking about going to next years already. I am a big F1 fan but not a liver of the driver aids they use. Bring back old school aerodynamics and let the drivers fight it out not the wind tunnels.
The next post has a video of an F1 car running indoors, but dont tell anybody. 😉👍 The post is scheduled for midday tomorrow our time in the UK.
Agreed. I am excited to see the next installment.
