January 2020, with Christmas over and rolling into a new year it’s time to start it off right! We are at the Autosport International Show at the NEC in Birmingham, UK. This event marks the start of our 2020 motorsport calendar and our first event of this new decade. But for this year, Baggsy is smoking out the Live Action Arena Show in his #LSXR35 with his fellow Monster Energy athlete Luke Woodham.

The show typically runs over 4 days, Thursday to Sunday, with 95,000+ visitors though the doors. ASI is the best place for any petrolhead to start off their new year. But for us in the Live Action Arena, we were concentrating on the busy event ahead, with a total of 12 live shows. All inside Hall 5 of the National Exhibition Centre.

This year the Arena was seen to be busier than ever, with media day trade tickets up more than 100% on the same day last year. It was definitely a show not to miss! Read More »

There was still the chance to make a quick pass round the show too, to take in all the real world competition cars. Read More »
