On Display At The NEC
There is no shortage of items of sportscar and GT interest on display at Autosport International.

Both 2003 Le Mans Bentleys are on display, still bearing the muck and grime collected during their run to a famous one-two finish.

The BRSCC’s stand features one of Mike Jordan’s immaculate Porsche 911s, marking Eurotech’s return in 2004 to the British GT Championship.

The Peninsula TVR T400R is also present in its new (very yellow) livery, reflecting the house colour of sponsor JCB.

Ferrari lovers are well catered for with a Care Racing Ferrari 550 on the Prodrive stand and examples of both the 575GTC and 360GTC lined up in the exhibition of Maranello’s finest in the main hall.

GTs past are marked with the appearance of both the evergreen Quaife and the Gulf Air VW Golf, pristine as ever (Steve Wood and Stuart Scott with the car - below). A GT of the future is there too, with the TVR Sagaris taking pride of place on the Dunlop stand.

Look hard enough and a Graham Nash Motorsport Saleen S7-R can be found, together with the Damax Ferrari 360 and Team Jota’s immaculate Pilbeam SR2 car.

Lovers of road car exotica are well catered for: Ferrari F40, F50, 575, 288GTO, 512 and Enzo are joined by Pagani Zonda, Invicta S1, Noble M12, Aston Martin Vanquish, Lamborghini Murcielago, Bentley Continental and the Porsche Carrera GT.

There was plenty of driving talent on tap too: Guy Smith was on stage to talk about his deal to race one of the pair of Audi UK-Veloqx R8s and ALMS stars Johnny Mowlem and Oliver Gavin were around as well. Mark Blundell was gripping and grinning in his new role with the nascent Formula Woman initiative and FIA GT stars Wolfgang Kaufmann, Thomas Erdos and Tim Sugden were spotted during the day, together with a host of British GT talent.
