This year’s Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show on November 11–13 is set to feature some well-known automotive faces on The Live Stage 

This year’s Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show is almost upon us, with the traditional end-of-season extravaganza set to open its doors to the public on Friday, November 11. The three-day event will be bigger and better than ever for 2022, with countless exhibits and attractions to keep enthusiasts entertained.

This year’s show theme is ‘Part of the Family’, with each of the 300 attending clubs interpreting it in its own way. Show director, Lee Masters, told Classics World: “The classic car community is a family that continues to grow every year as the next generation joins. We need to welcome and embrace new family members as they are the future of classic motoring.”

Ideas likely to be adopted by clubs include groups of cars from one manufacturing family; a car that has passed from generation to generation; famous motoring families; family projects; and memories of family cars and where they are now. In addition to the club displays, there will be a huge array of trade stands, autojumble stalls, classic car dealers and, of course, the annual weekend-long sale of desirable classics by Silverstone Auctions.

The Live Stage is always a highlight of the NEC show, and this year is no exception. Among the motoring celebrities joining Mike Brewer (of Wheeler Dealers fame) on stage will be former Fifth Gear presenter Jonny Smith, now the face of The Late Brake Show on YouTube. And another new face will be Alex Kersten, best known for presenting Car Throttle and who now hosts his own YouTube channel, Auto Alex.

“I’m so excited to be joining Mike on stage at the show,” said Alex. “As well as presenting, I’m also going to be bringing along my infamous Mazda MX-5, which has appeared in so many of my videos, so people can see just what it’s really like up close!”

Announcing the new additions, Brewer commented: “I can’t wait to get back on stage at the NEC and I’m looking forward to working with Alex and Jonny. It’s going to be great fun and I’m sure we’ll keep the crowds entertained.”

Another traditional attraction at November’s NEC show is its Pride of Ownership display, which will feature all 20 finalists representing an impressively wide range of ages and body styles. We previewed the Pride of Ownership finalists here on Classics World last week – see them for yourself here.
