Visitors of the show will have the chance to meet the stars of Car SOS: master mechanic Fuzz Townshend and petrol-headed part blagger, Tim Shaw. The pair are known for transforming cherished cars that have seen better days. They give owners a helping hand by  secretly whisking the wheels away to a well equipped workshop, before surprising the owner with a newly restored classic. Townshend and Shaw will be on site demonstrating their technique for audiences.

In a live performance of precision and excitement, Paul Swift’s team will thrill audiences with speedy sideways parking, car dance routines and the feat of two-wheel driving using the latest Ford cars. Mercedes-Benz World’s Silver Arrows will also be performing precision driving displays.
