Be part of Europe's #1 historic motorsport show!
Iconic Racing Cars | Live Rally Action | Specialist Exhibitors | Motorsport Legends
Bringing together the biggest turnout of racing drivers, preparers, traders and enthusiasts, Race Retro, powered by Motor Sport covers every discipline including formula and circuit racing, rallying, hill climbs, touring cars, single marque series, motorcycling, sports and GT cars.
Hosting an exciting line up of show features including celebrities on the Motor Sport Live Stage, the Live Rally Stage, over 250 specialist exhibitors including the Autojumble for all your small parts and the Motor Sport Hall of Fame Live showcasing legendary motors, the 2018 Race Retro Show really had it all!
This year, the Motor Sport Hall of Fame Live was a hub of celebrations, first of which was 40 years ground-effects era. In the display there was the Williams FW07 which took Alan Jones to victory in the 1980 championship, the Ralt 3 raced by Martin Brundle against the late great Ayrton Senna in British F3 and the ex-Siegfried Stohr Chevron B48 F2. The showstopper of the display was no doubt the Lotus 79 that took Mario Andretti to the world championships and was the first car to take on this ground breaking technology.
Next on the list of celebrations was the 30 year career of Prodrive's David Richards. On display were four cars spanning more than 30 years of David and Prodrive's success including the 1996 Subaru Impreza the legendary Colin McCrae drove to victory in the 1996 Rallye Catalunya, the 2004 BAR 060 which took Jenson Button to third place in the driver's championship and the very first model ever designed and built by Prodrive, the 1984 Porsche 911 SC RS.
Other displays celebrated Jaguar’s racing history at Le Mans, Porsche’s motorsport heritage and contenders in the new for 2018, Motor Sport Hall of Fame Racing Car category.
As well as iconic racing cars, there was the opportunity to hear from motorsport legends on the Motor Sport Live Stage. Brian Redman, the most recent racing driver to be inducted into the Motor Sport Hall of Fame, made his Race Retro debut. Alongside Brian, World Rally Champion, Miki Biasion, Triple British Touring Car Champion, Matt Neal, F1 designers John Barnard and Frank Dernie, motorcycle racer and TV pundit Steve Parrish were just a few names who graced the stage throughout the weekend giving some insights in to their outstanding careers.
Along with all of the above features enjoy live action on the Live Rally Stage, vote in the Pride of the Paddock, experience the Arrive & Drive a Classic Car operated by HERO Events, bid in the Silverstone Auctions sale and visit the Race Licence Medicals for testing.

Q: Where can I eat?
A: There are several food outlets all around the halls at the show serving delicious food (prices vary accordingly).
Q: What about if I've brought a packed lunch?
A: A common visitor complaint is that there's nowhere to sit and eat packed lunches in the halls. This is a tricky one because as much as we would like to, if we were to provide everyone a seat in the halls, there wouldn't be room for any cars! What people tend to forget is that, just outside all the halls, there is lots of freely available seating to use. There's no problem leaving the halls (you'll get your hand stamped on exit allowing you back in) for a while to eat your lunch!
Q: Is there accommodation near to the venue?
A: For help in finding accommodation in the area, please visit our 'Accommodation' page where HotelMap (our official accommodation provider) will be able to help find and book hotels near Stoneleigh Park at discounted rates - click here to visit the page.
To book accommodation at The Stoneleigh Park Lodge, located on the show ground, please visit their website.
Q: What parking is available on site?
A: We're pleased to offer over 3,000 free parking spaces, located a short walk from the halls at the show.
We also have a two-tiered level of VIP parking with spaces offered directly outside the entrance hall designated as Pole parking and the Grand Ring, located a maximum of a 5 minute walk from the halls designated as Podium parking. Should you wish to purchase VIP parking, you will need to book this in advance and will be issued with a hard copy-ticket ahead of the show which will need to be placed on the dashboard of your car in order to gain entry. VIP parking has limited availability, so it's advised to book your space as soon as possible. Book your VIP parking space now.
