Auto agenda: London Motor Expo, 24 Hours of Le Mans
Friday 03 June 2011
June 6 sees the start of the London Motor Expo in Canary Wharf with key UK and international brands attending.
16th London MotorExpo
London, United Kingdom
As Britain hasn't boasted a motor show of its own in recent years, enthusiasts are instead flocking to MotorExpo, a free exhibition staged in several venues around the world. This event will likely see exhibits and announcements from major British brands on the Canary Wharf exhibition ground.
12th Sofia International Motor Show
The Sofia Motorshow has been elevated to the big league this year following recognition by the OICA (Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d’Automobiles), which oversees most of the world's major shows. Expect a look at the latest trends from eastern Europe and regional premieres from international auto and motorcycle manufacturers.
79th 24 Hours of Le Mans
Le Mans, France
Arguably the world's most famous endurance race, Le Mans takes drivers on a gruelling journey of over 5,000 kilometers. Major automakers from around the world will be pitching up to test their cars in front of an audience from around the world.
London, United Kingdom
The luxury and supercar show fills at least some of the gap left by the absence of a British Motor Show, showcasing top-end marques in the beautiful surroundings of London's Syon Park. Alongside the cars will be a Concours d'Elégance and a new attraction, the world’s most comprehensive collection of surviving Group C Porsches.
