This will include the A-Plan Modified zone, The National Motor Museum “Record Breakers” stand and the Petrolheadonism Zone. This is a vastly expanded part of the show, showcasing modified cars from hot hatches to supercars and motorsport. The arena will feature motorcycle display teams, a parade of motorsport cars, motorsport demonstrations, drifting and more, hosted by TV motorsport presenter, Abi Stephens.

The British Motor Show CEO, Andy Entwistle, said: “Hall 5 attracted a lot of attention in our debut year at Farnborough, so it’s one of the areas we’ve really focused on expanding and developing in 2022.

“Having a sponsor as high profile as Bridgestone, partnering with Kwik Fit, really shows how seriously the show is being taken by some of the big players in the industry and we’re absolutely delighted to have them along as sponsors for what will be one of the most thrilling and interactive parts of the show.”

Bridgestone’s North Region Vice President Andrea Manenti said: “Bridgestone is synonymous with innovation, prestige, excellence in motorsport and sustainability which is why we’re so excited to be teaming up with the British Motor Show where the passion for motorsport meets the latest development in EV technology and sustainable mobility which are at the base of our future strategy involving our E8 commitment.

“The event attracts such a diverse and passionate audience spanning different generations. We can’t wait to see our name up in lights alongside some incredible cars; many of which we’ve forged close relationships with over the years.

“By partnering with the British Motor Show, we will be able to bring our premium tyre portfolio to life on a large scale and we are already putting plans in place to ensure that we leave a lasting impression across the four days.”

The British Motor Show will be held across 18-21 August 2022 at Farnborough International. Building on the success of its scheduling at last year’s show, The Live Arena – featuring stunt shows, car reviews, supercars and more – will be hosted again by Wheeler Dealer, Mike Brewer.
