At this year’s Autosport Show we are celebrating 50 years of Formula 5000. The Formula had a very brief history running from 1969 – 1975 and in its heyday, there were series in America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the UK. We will have six cars on display representing these years on our stand number 4040 in Hall 4.
On Friday 11th January between 2-3pm we are arranging a get-together of Formula 5000 drivers past and present and so far we have received acceptances from drivers including Ray Allen, Chris Craft, Damien Magee, Teddy Pilette , Patrick Sumner, Tony Trimmer and Cyd Williams – so please come along to admire the cars and have a chat.
Please note this year’s Show is sited on the Piazza side of the NEC – occupying Halls 1-5 focusing on three aspects Engineering, The Racing Car Show and Performance and Tuning. The Show will follow the usual format of Trade Days on Thursday 10th and Friday 11th and will be open to the public on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th – opening times are 09.00 to 18.00 each day.
