The Hall of Fame returns to the show with an outstanding display of iconic cars presenting decades of motoring.
The perfectly preserved motors sitting in Hall 3 are certainly like no other...
In 2019 we hosted a very special tribute to the late Mike Hawthorn, a legendary British racing icon who tragically died at the young age of 29. The display lined-up was mouth-watering indeed with a unique collection of Mike Hawthorn’s cars and personal racing memorabilia, with a D-Type Jaguar on show that renowned collector, Nigel Webb, re-built using the chassis from the 1955 Le Mans winning car.
Next on the list and pleasing to the eye, visitors were able to admire a prestigious collection of cars celebrating the legacy of Le Mans. Holding such great power and history in worldly events, the display included the Audi R8C which made its debut at the 1999 24-Hour race, with R8s finishing in third and fourth places, and would go on to take overall victory on 13 occasions.
Marking the 40th anniversary of the first victory, this display also celebrated the turbocharged era of Formula 1 with an exciting showcase of racing machinery which includes the Williams FW11 actually driven by to championship victory by Nelson Piquet and the fearsome Vasek Polak Porsche 917/10 powered by a 5.0-litre flat-12 engine raced by Jody Scheckter.
