Traditionally the wake-up call for the motorsport season, Autosport International will once again help to shake off those off-season blues when it kicks off on Thursday.

The one-stop-shop format within the halls of Birmingham’s NEC, which runs until Sunday, ensures race and rally fans are treated to an exciting mix of new-car unveils, engineering clout, spectacular indoor action, memorabilia and trade stands, as well as driver appearances, autograph sessions and interviews. And, fortunately, visitors are all protected from the bleak winter weather.

Yours truly will once again officiate on the Autosport stage, with scores of personalities set to appear. From youngsters just starting out in the junior formulae to World Champions on two and four wheels, via Grand Prix veterans, rally, touring car and sportscar aces, as well as series bosses, team and circuit owners and engineers, every angle and discipline will be covered in the marathon Q+A sessions.
