MOTORSPORT HEROES

Each day will see a major figure from world motorsport officially opening the Show at 10am.

On Friday, David Richards CBE, Chairman and Chief Executive of the Prodrive Group, winner of six World Rally titles, five touring car championships, and second position in the F1 World Championship with BAR Honda, will open the Show. Richards himself was an accomplished rally co-driver, who won the FIA World Rally Championship in 1981 with Ari Vatanen.

On Saturday, motorcycle superhero Giacomo Agostini will officially open the Show. Agostini holds the honour of having won more Grand Prix motorcycle races than any other rider. By the time he retired, Agostini had won 122 Grands Prix, 12 Isle of Man TTs, 18 Italian Championships and 15 World Championships.

Sunday will see Vic Elford and Jackie Oliver open the Show. Elford was both a race and rally driver for Porsche in the early days of the 911, sensationally winning the1968 Monte Carlo Rally. His skills as a race driver also brought victories ranging from the Daytona 24 Hours to the Targa Florio and the Nurburgring 1000Km.

Jackie Oliver climbed the single-seat ladder to an F1 career which included driving for Colin Chapman in Team Lotus, as well as for BRM. In 1969, teamed with Jacky Ickx, Oliver scored an outright victory at the Le Mans 24 Hours in a Ford GT40. In 1978, he started the Arrows Formula 1 team.

The Show will also welcome team managers from that era: Peter Browning, Bill Price and Stuart Turner.
