The Autosport International show is not just about lovely race cars... 11 January 2016

Its that time of year again (bit late for another Christmas story? Ed) – The show that lifts our spirits and gets us in the mood for the next seasons racing; Autosport International is at the end of the week.

But I am saying that the scantily clad cars, ladies and Pistonheads stands are not where it is at – I am saying that if you are able; either as a “student”, or are in the trade, then you should be there at the TRADE days on Thursday and Friday because that is where the real exhibition is.

“But” I hear you say “the cars are the same for all 4 days”. True that may be but it is not the cars I want you to look at – It is the Engineering Exhibition.

The Engineering Exhibition is only on for the Trade days and then it packs up and some additional race car type stuff appears – If you have never seen the things of true beauty; of true genius and of true engineering excellence that are on display then you are missing out.

“But I only drive the thing, I am not interested in what makes it go; that is for my spanner man” – If you want my opinion (not everyone does! Ed) then seeing HOW and WHY the flappy paddle gearbox does what it does in a micro nothingth of a second or observing the fit and function of the new sodium cooled super lapped in titanium unobtainium expensivium composite valve, will make you a better driver. If only because it SHOULD increase your mechanical sympathy seeing these works of art.
