Donington Park owner Tom Wheatcroft and his son Kevin again had the honours of opening the Autosport International Show today, this time marking the start of the two-day public exhibition.
Wheatcroft owns one of the largest collection of historic Grand Prix cars at the Donington Park museum, and the collection forms the centrepiece of the '100 Years of Grand Prix Racing' feature at the Autosport Show.
Among the cars is the Renault which won the first Grand Prix, one hundred years ago, at the hands of Hungarian Ferenc Szisz.
The centre stage at the Autosport International Show will feature several drivers throughout the day, include David Coulthard, Robert Doornbos, Mark Blundell, Allan McNish and Jody Scheckter.
