JENSON BUTTON TO APPEAR AT AUTOSPORT INTERNATIONAL SHOW
Motor racing enthusiasts will get the opportunity to see Brawn GP driver and current Formula One World Champion Jenson Button when he attends Europe's largest motorsport show, Autosport International, in January.
Not only will visitors get a chance to see the driver at the NEC-based show, but also the machinery which helped him win his title, as the Brawn GP car will be on display, along with all the cars from the 2009 grid.
It was a close call whether Jenson would actually be able to compete in the 2009 season, when his former team Honda shut-up shop at the beginning of the year and the 29-year-old looked to be out of a F1 drive until Ross Brawn stepped in. So why not join in the celebrations with the champion in person at the Autosport Show, and hear his thoughts on his most important season to date?
Held at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, on 14-17 January 2010, the show is one of the few places where motorsport fans have the rare opportunity to get up-close and personal to their favourite drivers and cars away from the racetrack. F1 fan favourite, Jenson will be providing show-goers with a unique insight into life at the pinnacle of the glamorous and thrilling world of Formula One, as Autosport International celebrates its 20th anniversary.
Visitors can also look forward to wheel-to-wheel racing and record-breaking stunts in the Live Action Arena, which will once again showcase live racing, awe-inspiring car demonstrations, celebrity driver appearances and competitions.
"I am really looking forward to visiting the Autosport International Show in January," said Button. "It's a real highlight of the motorsport calendar and there's always a fantastic atmosphere with a great mix of people and some very impressive machinery. Along with the British Grand Prix and Goodwood Festival of Speed, it's one of the best opportunities to meet our fans and thank them for all their support. Hope to see you all there!"
"We are delighted that Jenson has been able to find time in his busy schedule to celebrate this milestone year with us," said Haymarket Exhibitions Show Director, Ian France. "I am confident that the 20th edition of our show will be the best yet. Watch this space as we will be announcing even more exciting show features in the coming months."
