AI Time Again

12th January 2012
I can't believe how quickly the Autosport International show comes round.
It feels as if the carpet's barely been rolled up from last year's show when we were crawling up the choc-a-block M42 to do it all over again.

One of the highlights of the show included the wonderful Senna exhibition. This was a stunning collection of cars driven by the great man. Fortunately, we got into the show before the public so we had this area and the rest of the halls virtually to ourselves for the first hour. Very nice.

Mr Danby fancied the look of a 1966 Mercedes-Benz 300 SE Cabriolet. It's going for auction and has less than 70,000 on the clock with a price prediction of somewhere between 55 and 75K. Go on, Rich. You know you want it.

The promo girls were, as ever, excellent fun. Lucy on the Faro stand was a great laugh and scarily photogenic. The statuesque Danielle working for Pro R was astoundingly tall (6ft even without her sky-scaper heels) The MIS Motorsport ladies lined up wonderfully in a rock-video kinda way. The Ginetta girls showed how to perch daintily on a bonnet without doing damage. Yes, there's no limit to the talents these ladies have.

Great show. Many thanks to Autosport for tolerating us once again and to my editor for the accreditation letter that got us in. The photos of the day are here
