The Motorsport Calendar VS The Great British Weather
The Great British Summertime is nearly over and for us Brits, this means that our options of open air events become that bit narrower. We’ve been working on a number of projects with the motorsport industry of late, which has got us thinking about what the cooler months have in store for professionals, fans and events organisers. Despite the less than kind weather, the industry continues to thrive and offer an exciting calendar all throughout Autumn. We’ve outlined 4 of the motorsport dates that have caught our eye below…
The high octane action of Formula One won’t be stopping any time soon, with the Singapore Grand Prix held on the 17th of September, the Japanese Grand Prix on the 8th of October, North American Grand Prix on the 22nd of October and the Mexican Grand Prix on the 29th of October. The season will end in Abu Dhabi on the 26th of November, but we can expect a lot of exciting racing action before that happens. The season so far has already been one of the most thrilling yet with a diverse and envy-inducing portfolio of locations and we can’t wait to see which driver will take the top spot.
Wales Rally GB
The penultimate round of the FIA World Championships in Wales plays host to one of the toughest and most anticipated courses on the championship circuit. With a loyal fan base of adrenaline-seekers that won’t be deterred by damp conditions, the event is well-equipped for Autumn Weather. Visitors (the race is held 26th-29th October) can grab hospitality packages from organisers meaning that the Welsh weather can be braved whilst enjoying some mad rallying!
Looking to get out, see off-road action and not have to come prepared for the traditional British drizzle? Motorcycle Live is the event for you. Billed as the UK’s largest motorcycle show, the NEC is the setting for off-roading, stunt shows, displays and more from 18th-26th November, all within one of the UK’s largest exhibition centres. If you fancy a day out with the family, we reckon this would be a great option – seats, readily available refreshments and all the motorcycle action you could wish for.
NEC Classic Motor Show
Another potential winner for families with a car enthusiast within their ranks is the Classic Motorshow, also staged at Birmingham’s NEC. The event promises over 2,500 classic and modern show stopping-motors, a live stage, restoration theatre and a classic car driving experience. The ideal petrolhead day out, all under one roof and without dodgy weather as a risk to your day out.
