A fully-attended show with tens of thousands of visitors, more than 700 exhibitors and an international roster of guests and celebrities made the 25th edition of the classic show held in Birmingham thrive.
The numbers of Autosport International Show leave time and again speachless. Tens of thousands of visitors flocked to the two-day show (plus two additional days dedicated exclusively to Trade) celebrating its 25th anniversary.
The best cars, racing teams and well known celebrities including former F1 driver David Coulthard, Allan McNish, Anthony Davidson and Will Stevens made the show a truly international motorsport event. Former kart stars George Russell, Ben Barnicoat, and Alex Albon who qualified for the coveted BRDC McLaren Autosport Award were also present to talk about the fantastic opportunity to take part in the program.
Karting was well represented by some of the most influential brands and series in the country such as Super One, Zip Kart, Rotax distributor JAG, Koden helmets also displaying Crg karts, Tillett, and recently announced FKS, just to name few, as well as some of the country's Karting associations such as the Association of British kart Clubs, the British Superkart Association, and the British Historic Kart Club.
On Saturday, Super One held the 2014 season prize giving ceremony where the top-10 of each category were awarded a wide range of prizes by Formula 1 driver and 2007 European Karting Champion Will Stevens.
As a highlight, the MSA also launched the MSA Race 'n' Respect campaign, the new code of conduct for Bambino and Cadet racing which champions fair play, fun, friendship and respect for all within the sport.
The Autosport International Show has once again provided a superb opportunity to put the Karting industry where it belongs - at the heart of Motorsport.
