This year's show is shaping up to be another star-studded affair, with 13-time grand prix winner and current BBC Formula 1 expert David Coulthard appearing on stage to talk to fans.

"One of the fantastic things about motorsport is the way it brings passionate fans together and AUTOSPORT International is a big part of that," said Coulthard.

"I've enjoyed attending the show over the years at different stages in my career.

"There'll be lots to talk about from Formula 1, particularly the incredible title fight between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, and I'm looking forward to getting back to the NEC."

More star guests are set to be confirmed in the days leading up to the show, joining names such as World Endurance champion Anthony Davidson (and his Sky F1 commentary partner David Croft), plus 2014 F1 debutant Will Stevens.

There will also be appearances from World Rallycross champion Petter Solberg, sportscar legend Allan McNish, and British Touring Car champions Matt Neal, Gordon Shedden, Colin Turkington and Andrew Jordan.
