What’s On Our Motorsport Calendar This Year?
As a designer and manufacturer of protective equipment for the motorsport industry, Flightcase Warehouse finds industry events invaluable for learning about the compelling needs, product developments and upcoming challenges our clients will be inevitably affected by. Understanding exactly what’s making waves in the industry at large means that we can provide the very best product and service offering – and it’s also a great excuse for us to get out and about a few weekends a year getting up to speed with the must-visit motorsport shows! Here’s just three of the UK’s flagship events we’re hoping to work into our schedules over the summer months this year.
The London Motor Show: 17-20 May
The London Motor Show is the UK’s largest gathering of its kind, and for 3 days in May takes over the ExCeL in London. Exhibitors range from well-known manufacturers such as BMW, McLaren, Lotus, Mercedes-Benz and Bentley, and all bring their latest concepts to show off to the crowd. But it’s not just static presentations. The show boasts a ‘Live Drive Arena’ staging stunning, exhilarating driving displays from some of the world’s premier teams and the chance for visitors to get behind the wheel of a purebred supercar themselves, too. The event makes a point of being inclusive for motorsport fans of all levels and abilities, with Mercedes catering to underage drivers with their under 17s experience for those clamouring to get behind the wheel!

This event straddles two locations, one in the North and another in the South.
