Stand Out is of the understanding that the show’s current events manager, Andy Rouse, who is based in Birmingham, is to be made redundant.

The statement continued: “The Classic Motor and Classic Motorbike Shows’ are the UK’s biggest and best classic motoring events which bring together tens of thousands of visitors from all over the world for this annual homage to motoring history.”

The shows will continue to be run at the NEC, Birmingham, with the 2013 dates confirmed as November 15-17.
