TRIPLE WORLD TOURING CAR CHAMPION CONFIRMED FOR AUTOSPORT INTERNATIONAL
Triple FIA World Touring Car Champion Andy Priaulx is the latest star to confirm his attendance at Europe's largest motorsport show, Autosport International.
The British driver is making a guest appearance at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham on Saturday 16 January 2010. Fans will get the chance to hear him discuss his 2009 season and his year ahead, where he will compete for BMW, in both the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) and various endurance events.
Priaulx is also competing in David Brabham's Celebrity Karting Challenge on Friday 15 January, which is raising awareness and funds for its principle charity partner, Malaria No More UK.
"The show is a must-attend for everyone involved in motor racing," said Priaulx, who received an MBE in 2008 for his services to British motorsport. "When you're racing it can be hard to get around the paddock and meet everyone, but Autosport International provides the perfect opportunity to kick-off the season by catching up with other drivers, teams and sponsors, as well as meeting the fans.
"It's great to be able to give something back to all those that have been so supportive during my career, as well as raising funds for such a worthy cause by taking part in the Celebrity Karting Challenge."
Autosport International Show Director Ian France said: "We're delighted to have such a strong representation of British motorsport talent at the show. Andy is a firm favourite with the fans and we look forward to seeing him in action both on the Autosport Stage and behind-the-wheel of a kart."
Other British motorsport personalities confirmed to attend the show are Formula One World Champion Jenson Button, former-F1 driver and BBC commentator Martin Brundle, double 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Allan McNish and Chevrolet's WTCC driver Rob Huff.
