International Historic Motorsport Show 2006

Europe's premier winter show for historic motorsport is back, with a whole host of fresh attractions for 2006. For any enthusiast of Historic Motor Racing, Rallying and Touring the International Historic Motorsport Show is a 'must-do' every year, and 2006 promises to be the best yet.

The Third International Historic Motorsport Show will have live action, combined with the spectacle of 450 displays throughout the venue's four main halls - capturing the thrills and nostalgia of 70 years of motorsport. Whatever your area of interest, there's plenty to entertain the Show's expected 20,000 visitors. From historic racing, rallying and hillclimbs, through drag racing, trials and classic motorcycles, to classic car and motorcycle books and an autojumble, visitors can't help but be swept up by the excitement of this unique event.

Newcomers to the historic world can explore all aspects of this affordable and fast-growing sport, while experienced enthusiasts can mix with the competitors, series organisers, race preparers and engineers to share the latest news. Not to mention the famous names from motorsport who come to the Show - several of them actually competing in the live events.

In this, its third year, the IHMS is recognised across the industry as THE historic motorsport show. By mid-October, 90% of the exhibitor space in the main racing car hall has already been booked, while auction-house Bonhams has announced the Show as the chosen venue for a major sale of classic and historic cars and motorcycles.

Don't miss out on the chance to experience seven decades of motorsport at one action-packed, three-day show. In the words of Sir Stirling Moss OBE, "It is the best show I have ever been to."

The show runs from 24-26 February 2006, at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry,
