The 2009 Autosport International Show, is the workld biggest motorsport show.

There were some nice car on display - Loads of WRC cars, 3 Decades of Porsche's, and a COY's car aution. PLus the Live Action Arena, which celebrated the win of 2008 F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton and the departure of David Coulthard, it also promoted the different forms of English motorsport - including stock cars, autograss, historics, rallycross and all seven candidates from the BRDC McLaren Autosport Young Drivers Programme.

There was also the PistonHeads show - Pistonheads is a website similat to Team BHP. The show had members showing off their rides, some very very nice rides.

Love the Atom.
The Gallardo has been destroyed IMO.
The Martin would have looked better without all that written on it.

Abhinav - Both the Gallardo and the Aston are from a Racing series and thats why they have stickers all over them. The Atom is lovely.

Love the pics
Thanks

I really like the Porsche Carrera GT, Caterham, the Diablo, the Atom. Even the KTM is good.

I do not like the 370z , IMO 350 was way better.

Those are the most aesthetic sticker-jobs I have ever seen!
Awesome pics Sameer! thanks for posting.
Except for the Ferrari 360 limo(why!), the ugly Renault and the wanton halogens on the Porsches all the cars are awesome.
