Top petrolhead TV show Car SOS has been confirmed as a centre-stage attraction at next month’s British Motor Show – with both Fuzz Townshend and Tim Shaw set to attend throughout the weekend.
The two will front the live stage at the show, headlining an interactive Car SOS Live experience to draw show-goers.
Favourite Car SOS motors will be on display, including a Ford Cortina, Austin Healey 3000, MG Metro 6R4… and a Ford ice cream van.
Visitors will even be able to ‘sit’ in some of the cars via an interactive green screen – and they’ll then be turned from an old banger into a fully-restored vehicle around them.
Fans will be able to take away GIFs that they can share on their own social media platforms.
Held at Farnborough International, the 2021 British Motor Show runs from 19-22 August.
British Motor Show CEO Andy Entwistle said: “Right back when we first announced the return of The British Motor Show to the international stage, we said that one of the main reasons for doing it was for the love of cars.
“Put simply, there is no other TV show that celebrates the love of cars in the same way that National Geographic’s Car SOS does.”
He called Fuzz and Tim “two TV stars in their own right, but also engaging, approachable guys who love their cars just as much as we do.
“Having them and the show as such core feature is an absolutely fabulous endorsement, and adds yet more value to what’s already an incredible day out for the money.”
The rest of the Car SOS team will also be at the event, with the workshop crew and artisans showing their skills to the public – an element intended to be as interactive and hands on as possible.
Live demonstrations will run too, showing the hard work behind car restoration, and how it’s not always as easy as it looks on TV…
