Autosport International announced the promotion of the Karting Area as a show within its own right, at the NEC on 10-13 January 2008.
Autosport International will feature an entire Karting Area as a show within its own right, at the NEC on 10-13 January 2008. At last year's show over 27,000 industry visitors came to see 850 exhibitors.
The 2007 show also attracted over 67,000 public visitors during the two public days, Saturday and Sunday. Autosport International has long been committed to represent and help increase the profile of karting, both as a route to the higher echelons of motorsport and as a sport in itself. The Karting Show at Autosport International 2008 will strive to offer the best opportunity for the sport to present itself, while attracting newcomers and celebrating future champions.
Nolan O’Connor, Group Marketing Manager at Haymarket Exhibitions, commented: “Karting has obviously been a growing part of Autosport International for a number of years to such an extent that we realised it needed to form its own dedicated show. The new branding and promotion will ensure the Karting Show stands out from the rest of the world’s biggest motorsport show. A number of initiatives will also ensure the Karting Show is recognisably different from other show areas.”
BRDC Stars of Tomorrow Series Director, Carolynn Hoy, has welcomed the Karting Area’s promotion and commented: “Over the years karting has grown to such an extent that it now deserves its own show within Autosport International. This exciting plan is a real endorsement on how karting has come of age.”
