18th September 2015
Motorsport fans can look forward to a spectacular new attraction at Autosport International from 14-17 January 2016 – a celebration of one of the UK's most famous, successful and revered racing teams: Williams Martini Racing.

The Grove-based racing team, originally established by Sir Frank Williams and Patrick Head in 1977 and the winner of nine Formula One™ Constructors' Championships, will have a major presence at Autosport International 2016 with features celebrating its past, present and future.

Williams will exhibit some of its most celebrated racing cars, alongside appearances from current drivers and famous faces who have played a part in Williams' success, including its seven Formula One™ Drivers' Championships.

Unprecedented fan engagement will be a theme of Williams' presence at the NEC. As many fans know, the Formula One™ paddock is often off limits for regular enthusiasts who rarely get to see the motorhomes up close. Not so at Autosport International.

As part of a major development of the Autosport Stage, the Williams Martini Racing motorhome will be constructed immediately next to the main stage - the first time it has ever been erected away from a race circuit. A permanent feature for the duration of Autosport International, it will be an amazing sight, standing eight metres tall and bringing even more F1 excitement to the NEC.

As well as interactive features focusing on Williams' F1 exploits, the event will also give visitors an insight into the world of Williams Advanced Engineering, the division that transfers technology from Formula One™ to market sectors as diverse as defence and renewable energy.

Williams Advanced Engineering has completed many high profile projects recently, including supplying all batteries to the inaugural FIA Formula E Championship. In addition, visitors will be able to learn about Williams Heritage, the team's historic racing division, which restores and fully supports Williams racing cars for private owners.

Claire Williams, Williams Martini Racing Deputy Team Principal, said: 'Autosport International is the world's biggest racing car show, covering every aspect of our sport and the industry that supports it.

'We are delighted that we will have such a major presence at the 2016 event, which will give us the opportunity to celebrate and share our past and present with our fans – and also give visitors the chance to learn about other elements of the Williams organisation that they may not be familiar with.'

Anthony Rowlinson, Group Editor Autosport, F1 Racing and Motorsport News said: 'Williams Martini Racing is one of the most-loved teams in the history of motorsport and everyone involved with the show is absolutely delighted that they will be such a major feature in 2016.

'It's great to have a current front-running team at Autosport International again, placing the event at the forefront of the motorsport calendar in the run-up to 2016 Formula One™ season.'

Ian France, Autosport International show director, said: 'We are extremely excited that Williams will be at Autosport International 2016 in such a spectacular way. From the construction of the incredible Williams Martini Racing motorhome alongside famous Williams racing cars – and lots more besides – this will be a real feast for all motorsport fans.'

More details of the Williams special feature at Autosport International will be announced in the coming months. The 2016 Autosport International show takes place from 14-17 January at the Birmingham NEC. Tickets for the event, which covers every aspect of motorsport from karting to Formula One™ and also engineering, are on sale now and can be purchased from http://www.autosportinternational.com
