The Classic & Sports Car Show will once again be celebrating the artistic side of the automotive industry, with a wide range of artists set to exhibit at the Alexandra Palace event from sculptors and photographers, to painters and digital renderers. Tim Layzell, the UK-based artist who created the supercar-themed poster for the event, will showcase some of his eye-catching pieces at the show, taking place 28th – 30th October. As a motorsport fan and former competitor, his passion for racing is evident in his ‘pop-art’ style paintings, which give a different perspective on the automotive world.

Organised by the world’s best-selling classic car magazine, Classic & Sports Car, and Haymarket Exhibitions, The Show will return to the majestic and iconic venue of Alexandra Palace, running from Friday 28th October to Sunday 30th October, 2016.
