Celebrating decades of motoring

The Hall of Fame includes a fantastic array of iconic cars presenting decades of motoring. The perfectly preserved motors are certainly like no other.

This years Hall of Fame is yet to be announced - so watch this space! 

In addition we have the Reis Pride of the Paddock competition display, where visitors have the opportunity not only to admire the cars but also to cast their votes for the one they believe should be crowned the winner!

The Reis Live Stage features interviews and discussions the motorsport legends.

At our 2020 show we celebrated iconic F1 cars and a tribute to Norman Dewis OBE with a line-up of Jaguars representing milestones in his career. To explore the 2020 Hall of Fame, read below: 

The Greatest Grid

The Greatest Grid display celebrated 70 years of Formula One and feature ground-breaking ‘F1’ cars as well as the machines driven to victory by iconic drivers.

The display included F1 cars that raced back in 1950 as well as those World and Constructors Championship winning cars that are being raced today, showcasing the work of Formula One drivers, designers, and engineers from most famous manufacturers such as Williams, McLaren, Lotus and Mercedes.




Life of a Legend

The 2020 display paid tribute to fantastic Jaguar test development driver, Norman Dewis OBE.​ Norman, motorsport legend and a long-time friend of the show, was responsible for the development of some of Jaguar’s most iconic models.
The Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club, with the support of the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, assembled a line-up of three cars representing key moments in Norman’s career:

  • The Jaguar C Type on which Dewis began developing the disc brake concept. The technology was fitted to Stirling Moss' Jaguar C-type in the 1952 Mille Miglia, and Dewis accompanied him as a passenger
  • The oldest surviving convertible E -Type 77RW, that Dewis famously drove through the night, at short notice, from Coventry to the Geneva Motor Show ready for the 10am press launch for the car



  • A unique, one off, XJ13 racing prototype that Norman Dewis developed for racing at Le Mans before it was shelved. Years later, he drove it again at a press launch at MIRA and was lucky to escape a horrendous crash in it

Norman Dewis was chief test driver and development engineer for Jaguar between 1952 and 1985.

A 33-year career with Jaguar that saw him break the land speed record for production cars in a Jaguar XK120 on the Jabbeke Highway in Belgium and, through his long and often dangerous hours of test driving, significantly contribute to the Le Mans wins for Jaguar in the 1950s with the C and D – Types.

Norman also raced alongside the greats which included Moss, Hawthorn and Fangio behind the wheel of a works Jaguar D Type.  

In 2014, the adoration of Norman’s fans was recognised on a national scale, when he was awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE).
