The future of motorsport to be debated at Autosport International

As Autosport celebrates its 70th year, anticipation is high for Autosport International and it has been confirmed that F1 race winner Charles Leclerc will be the star guest. As part of the proceedings, high-profile leaders from across the world of motorsport will come together to discuss the future of motorsport in the Motorsport Leaders Business Forum.

The Motorsport Leaders Business Forum will make up part of the Autosport Business Forum during the show’s second trade day on Friday, 10 January at Birmingham’s NEC. For its second year as part of Europe’s largest motorsport show, it will consist of two primary sessions along with other events hosted and moderated by Motorsport Network President James Allen.

While the Motorsport Leaders Business Forum will take place on one of Autosport International’s trade days, the show opens to the public on Saturday 11 January and Sunday 12 January, when motorsport fans can experience a wide variety of exhibits and displays from different disciplines.

More information and ticket details can be found on the show’s website: www.autosportinternational.com.

MUSEUM PIECES

Incredible online BL catalogue unveiled at the BMM

The British Motor Museum’s Archive has unveiled an online catalogue for their Archives Revealed project, entitled ‘The Art of Selling.’ The unique collection of Sales and Press Material originating from British Leyland and their competitors at home and abroad has been catalogued thanks to funding from The National Archives, The Pilgrims Trust, The Wolfson Foundation and The Foyle Foundation.

In June 2018 £30K was awarded, to pay for the employment of an archivist, Katie Finn, to sort and catalogue the collection, training volunteers to work on the collection and on future new projects, as well as archive materials to rehouse the documents. Work on the project began in Autumn 2018 and so far as taken well over 3,000 hours to complete. Over 500 boxes have been sorted and nearly 16,500 items have been catalogued, with another 5000 items to be added in 2020.
