Celebration time for Cars International and Williams Heritage at the London Classic Car Show

Celebration time for Cars International and Williams Heritage at the London Classic Car Show

Archant

The year has started well for Cars International, the Hungerford-based specialists who supply, restore and maintain high performance road and racing cars. They used the first London Classic Car Show to celebrate their appointment as ‘official agents’ for Williams Heritage.

Visitors to the Williams Heritage stand included F1 drivers and TV celebrities, such as Chris Evans, Martin Brundle, David Coulthard, James May, James Martin and Adrian Newey.

Cars International will work with Jonathan Williams, who heads up the Williams Heritage department at Grove, Wantage, and alongside Dickie Stanford, general manager of this new Williams division who oversees the maintenance and public demonstration of the team’s historic Formula One cars.

Historically important cars released from the Williams Grand Prix Collection, which includes the largest private collection of Formula One cars in the world, will be offered for sale through Cars International. On display at The London Classic Car show were the first Williams Formula One cars available: the 2003 FW25, 1981 FW07C and the iconic 1993 Williams FW15C driven by Damon Hill in 14 of 16 races in the 1993 World Championship.

Jonathan Williams says: “Whatever your Formula One passion, be it for investment, a particular era, or a famous driver you followed, there will be numerous opportunities to own and run an early or late model Formula One car.”

Tim Preston Director of Cars International adds: “It’s a fantastic opportunity to be reacquainted with some of the cars that my team and I helped engineer and build. It will be fun to relive our moments of glory from previous Formula One successes and perhaps recreate new ones, if the new owners want to take to the driving seat.”

The first London Classic Car was such a success that organisers have confirmed the next one will by 50 per cent bigger and run from 18-21 February 2016. See www.carsinternational.com
