Motorsport UK has signed a long-term agreement with Silverstone to host the national motorsport show at The Wing at Silverstone. The event will take place on November 3 and 4. In addition, the show will be rebranded Silverstone Motorsport UK.

A kit car pavilion, a UK kart challenge and fan forums will feature alongside exhibitors. The show will also make use of Stowe Circuit, a separate infield circuit with its own facilities, as part of The Silverstone LIVE experience and The Track Driver Hot Laps experience, allowing visitors some hands-on time with vehicles and teams.

Martin Capenhurst, organiser, Motorsport UK, said: “We are thrilled to be hosting the Silverstone Motorsport UK 2012 at The Silverstone Wing. The exhibition space will provide visitors with the chance to make contact and network with suppliers, organisers and key people from the industry in a prestigious setting. The venue is also unique in its ability to cater for the show’s new LIVE elements, which include providing visitors with the chance to get behind the wheel of one of Silverstone’s cars on Stowe Circuit, hot laps in exhibitor vehicles and the Go Motorsport kart challenge, providing visitors the chance to compete and win sponsorship for their 2012 season to individuals.”
