Race Retro 2017 to be ‘powered by’ Motor Sport magazine

Historic Racing News

Race Retro will be ‘powered by’ Motor Sport Magazine when the historic motor sport show returns to Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, in 2017. Held from Friday February 24 to Sunday 26, the new three-year partnership will see Motor Sport’s Hall of Fame develop into a live spectacle within a dedicated Motor Sport Magazine Hall at Race Retro.

Hall of Fame Live will give visitors the chance to meet Hall of Fame inductees from racing and rallying as well as enjoying live interviews with the stars. There will also be stunning displays of the cars and bikes that led them to victory.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to vote for their favourite motor sport legends who have been shortlisted to be inducted at the next Hall of Fame awards dinner in May 2017.

Race Retro event director Daniel Nwaokolo said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Motor Sport. Having motor sport legends – be they the cars and motorcycles or drivers and riders – at the show, interacting with enthusiasts, has always been a highlight of the event. Introducing the Hall of Fame as a new feature takes that to the next level.”

Launched in 2010, the Motor Sport Hall of Fame inducts motoring luminaries each year. Names such as James Hunt, John McGuinness, Colin McRae, Niki Lauda, and Giacomo Agostini have been added to the prestigious list in recent times.

Damien Smith, editor of Motor Sport magazine said: “We are delighted and excited with this new partnership that will push the Motor Sport Hall of Fame to the next level from 2017 and beyond. We’re looking forward to featuring a physical Hall of Fame display at our favourite historic racing car show of the year, which has always had a perfect synergy with Motor Sport.

“We’d like to thank Clarion Events, organisers of Race Retro, for a partnership that offers so many possibilities to expand the Hall of Fame and take the Motor Sport brand and content to a wider audience.”

More information on the Motor Sport Hall of Fame can be found at www.motorsportmagazine.com/halloffame. The 2016 inductees, voted for by the public, included Valentino Rossi, Dan Gurney, Sébastien Loeb, Sid Watkins and Derek Bell.

Race Retro will be held from February 24 to 26, 2017 at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, with tickets on sale later in the year. For the latest updates, visit www.raceretro.com
