Modern cars, classic cars, modified cars, F1 cars and rally cars - Autosport International 2020 had it all...

Much like the watch industry, the motorsport industry is vast in is size and activity. From Formula 1 and GT racing to grass route racing, local classic car meets and everything in between. For the past 12 months, we’ve been regularly dipping our toes into this industry for future watch projects (my lips are sealed!) and last Thursday we were invited to attend Autosport International in Birmingham.

“Fuelling the motorsport world of shows and exhibits, Autosport International connects motorsport experts and enthusiasts to network, trade, discuss, explore and market their unique showpieces this coming January 9th - 12th at Birmingham's massive NEC.” - Autosport International

That's one hell of an F1 car line up @ Autosport International 2020 - Image Credit: WatchGecko Online Magazine

As someone who has seen quite a few watch shows in my short time within the watch industry, attending a motorsport event as large as this was a new one for me. It’s only when we’re at a show like Autosport do you realise how extensive and comprehensive the wonderful world of motorsports really is.

Take a tour of the show with us as we explore everything Autosport International has to offer…

And yes, those are rose gold coloured accents... - Image Credit: WatchGecko Online Magazine

If you're a Lambo guy but need something for the family, why not just get a blacked-out Urus? - Image Credit: WatchGecko Online Magazine

The colours on this car were stunning... - Image Credit: WatchGecko Online Magazine

When normal carbon fibre is boring = forged carbon... - Image Credit: WatchGecko Online Magazine

Or if blacked-out isn't your thing, why not a lime green Urus? - Image Credit: WatchGecko Online Magazine
