15-18 Feb. Historic Motorsport International, Excel Centre London.

23-25 Feb. Race Retro, Soneleigh.

There- no clashes.........
Could add to that

30 Nov - 12 Dec Essen Motor Show


...since it has a considerable motorsport content these days.

The FJHRA are certainly getting their monies worth out of touring the world! Suspect the old 'plastic' has been taking a hammering for some.

That's 2017. Actually should change the opening date to 1 Dec. I took the dates off my pass & 30 Nov is set-up for exhibitors.

2018: 1-9 December.

Essen Motor Show- not to be confused with Techno Classica Essen, then. Latter also pre-season, just! March 21st to 25th........

Gary, you’re right about the travelling FJs! Unparalleled in historic racing, methinks.

Still a wonderful show, but not really much motorsport at Techno Classica.

Incidentally, this years Essen Motor Show is the 50th, which must make it one of the longest-running.

...and if we are stretching the point a bit, Flanders Collection Car in Gent is 18/19 February, same weekend as London. Sorry Mike, that's a clashing date!

I’ve heard the December show described as a German version of the American SEMA, so quite different to Techno Classica. Interestingly they are accessible from here by public transport, as is Retromobile and of course HMI. In fact it would be almost as quick to Essen by train as it is to the NEC......

Anyway, we digress!

Slight interlude - had to go out to sample the Beaujolais Nouveau!

Motor Show in December really covers all things motoring - including electric cars. One press release included a picture of a BMW i3 being 'refuelled' by an attractive young lady surrounded by a cloud of dry ice. Has that been your experience Mike?

The show has evolved over the years & struggled following the 2009 crash as most of the major manufacturers pulled out, but has returned to strength now. It fills a complex comparable to the NEC (19 halls I think, at the last count.

Motorsport has gained in significance in the last two or three years & now fills 2 or 3 halls plus a live action hall. A bit like Autosports, but probably closer to the Engineering section (does that still happen?) exhibitors range through teams. builders, preparers, suppliers etc as well as various race & championship organisers, predominantly from Germany & Holland.

The rest of the show really does cover all things motoring from manufacturer stands, custom cars, a large classic section etc.

Techno Classica in the spring is purely classics, but is the biggest & best show of its kind bar none. Again fills the entire complex, plus some outside areas. The organisers actually have a waiting list of exhibitors.

Both shows are well worth a visit, inexpensive & - as Mike says- easy to get to. It's about a four-hour drive from the Channel ports. Parking is a lot cheaper than the NEC!

L-G Sjöberg should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Fancy doing some historic racing in Sweden next year? The Swedish Racing Historic Club (RHK) has just announced its calender for 2018. Starting at Kinnekulle Ring May 11-13, then Karlskoga June 15-17 (also the final round of the FJHRA Baltic Tour), Ring Knutstorp July 6-8, Mantorp Park August 24-26 and finally Falkenberg September 14-16.

Races are open to cars according to Appendix K and with a valid HTP (or a national VIF with the same contents but subject to approval, check first). Grids for Competition Touring Cars (up to 65, 66-71, 72-81 plus Group A -90). 66-71 and 72-81 also including GTs of the same vintage. Separate grids for GTs up to 65. Further grids for historic Formula Ford (all the way up to 1990), historic Formula Vee (single- and double-carb), single-seaters racing on slicks up to 1990 (together with Sports 2000). Pre-war cars, Formula Junior, F3/500 and F3/1000 get separate grids if enough entries, otherwise still welcome but will then be combined with other grids.

Events are for three days with free practice on Friday, timed practice and one race on Saturday and a second race on Sunday.

Link to the RHK homepage:http://www.rhkswe.org/ (but don´t get fooled by the UK flag, the English version of the page has not been updated since 2014 or so).
