Auto agenda: Beaulieu Simply Classics and EcoVelocity in London

Automechanika and the Inaugural Beaulieu Simply Classics are highlights of this weekend, before electric car makers glide silently into town for the first EcoVelocity EV show in London.

15th Automechanika
August 24-27
Moscow, Russia

Over 750 exhibitors are expected to attend Automechanika, which showcases everything from engines to lubricant, car stereos to trailers. With Russian car sales up 30 percent in 2010, all eyes will be on the automakers expected to introduce new models for a booming market.

EcoVelocity EV Show
September 8-11
London, UK

London is rapidly becoming a leading world city for electric vehicles, installing infrastructure far faster than many of its counterparts. This show will display everything from charging equipment to battery-powered taxis and is set to offer a glimpse into a future in which 'the Big Smoke' may not actually have any emissions at all.

Old Timer Festival
September 9-11
Nürburgring
Nürburg, Germany

The Old Timer Festival is one of few events which sees action from both two- and four-wheeled vehicles. Focusing mainly on vehicles built between the Second World War and the 1970s, it offers three days of racing around one of the world's most famous circuits and is a must for classic car racers.

Frankfurt, Germany

One of the biggest events in the year's automotive calendar, the Frankfurt Motor Show is expected to see a raft of new product unveilings from the world's biggest automakers. Particular attention will be paid to the German names at the show, with Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi and Volkswagen among the hottest brands to watch.

Orange County International Auto Show
September 22-25
Anaheim, CA, USA

Although smaller than the Los Angeles show set for November and absolutely dwarfed by the Frankfurt show across the Atlantic, the Orange County auto show opens the season of North American shows and has hundreds of vehicles on display.
