January will mark three years since Autosport International was last in Birmingham, and 2023 will start a new chapter for the show. The dates are set, and the National Exhibition Centre will open its doors from 12th-15th January to welcome a host of motorsport enthusiasts, professionals and racing drivers, right at the start of the motorsport calendar.

Three unique shows, one Autosport International

Autosport International comprises three distinctive exhibitions: The Racing Car Show, Autosport Engineering, and the Performance & Tuning Car Show.

Kick off the motorsport season at The Racing Car Show, with exhibitors from across the motorsport spectrum. Listen to star drivers reflect on 2022 and look ahead to 2023 on the main stage and get up close and personal with hundreds of the world’s finest racing machines.

Whether it’s top tuned road cars or bespoke race cars, the Performance & Tuning Car Show brings together some of the most beautiful, and occasionally outright ludicrous, cars in the world. What’s more, the show welcomes the return of Top Tuned Car, an opportunity for tuners to enter their pride and joy into one of the most prestigious competitions of its kind. Entries will be submitted to a vote, where judges will be looking for something that wows them with its looks and modifications, with many of the entries on display at Autosport International.

Industry-leading exhibitors confirmed

Among the list of confirmed exhibitors, Demon Tweeks, the leading specialist motorsport, tuning and motorcycle retailer, will display its latest range of products and merchandise. Since 1971, Demon Tweeks has offered the most comprehensive product range in motorsport. Its presence at the show gives visitors a unique opportunity to get started in motorsport or update their equipment for the coming season.

Xtrac also makes its return to the show. The Berkshire-based transmission specialist will showcase its engineering and manufacturing prowess at the show. The company develops transmissions for a wide range of motorsport categories, from IndyCar to numerous touring car championships around the world.

LIVE Action Arena is back better than ever

Always a highlight of the Autosport International weekend, the LIVE Action Arena is set to host world-class drivers, riders and special guests when it returns in 2023. A thrilling experience no matter if you’re new to motor racing, or have been following the sport for decades. What makes the LIVE Action Arena so special is its diversity. Packed into an hour, see vehicles from the world of Formula 1, motocross and grassroots motorsport host a mixed spectacle of explosive stunts and races.

Get business done at the Autosport Engineering Show

Located in the heart of the show, Autosport Engineering offers trade visitors the exclusive opportunity to meet with like-minded professionals, discover the latest industry innovations and the opportunity to collaborate with new business partners.

Over 60% of trade visitors attend to keep up with what is happening in motorsport, and 85% of attendees are key decision-makers. This trade-only exhibition offers an unparalleled opportunity to exhibit, showcase and network with an international audience – it’s the best time of the year to reach influential leaders from across the industry.

Something for everyone

Autosport International runs over four days with the Racing Car Show and Performance & Tuning Car show open throughout. Thursday and Friday are trade-only, with exclusive access to the two-day Autosport Engineering Show. On Saturday and Sunday, Autosport International opens its doors to the public, with tickets going on sale later this year.
