Among the cars on show will be the Williams FW07 - the model that gave the team its first F1 win with Clay Regazzoni at the 1979 British Grand Prix - as well as the FW14B and FW18 cars from Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill's title-winning years in 1992 and '96 respectively.

The 2003 FW25 used by Juan Pablo Montoya to win in Monaco also features.

The cars will be just one part of the centrepiece display that has led to an overhaul of the main Autosport stage.

Williams deputy team principal Claire Williams said: "We get such great support from the fans and we can't wait to be able to give something back at Autosport International.

"We're looking forward to showing off some of our most famous racing cars from the past four decades."

More details about the display will be announced before the event.
