Senna display is centrepiece of racing car show

Displays celebrating the career of Ayrton Senna, six decades of Formula 3 and 30 years of Group C racing will be key elements of the 2012 Autosport International show at Birmingham’s NEC from January 12-15.

The showcase Senna Display will feature karts and cars from his early career as well as a selection of the F1 machinery that took him to three titles, 41 race wins and 80 podium finishes.

Scottish stars David Coulthard, Allan McNish and Paul di Resta will attend, as will the 1980 World Champion Alan Jones.

An HSCC display will trace the 60-year history of F3 from the 500cc era through to the modern day, while Group C racing will celebrate its 30th anniversary.

The annual Motorsport Safety Fund Watkins Lecture will feature McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh.
