Broken records

It was a record-breaking year for the British Motor Show as stunt driver Paul Swift achieved a new Guinness World Record for the world’s tightest parallel park in an electric car. Swift managed to position an electric Mini into a gap with just 35cm to spare, in fact.

He then went on to break a second record, this time in a Ford Mustang to achieve the most number of spins around a motorcycle which was performing a wheelie at the same time.

Celebrities in attendance

All manner of motoring celebrities attended the British Motor Show this year, with personalities such as Mike Brewer, Fuzz Townshend, Tim Shaw and Olympian Iwan Thomas all there.

Former Top Gear host Tiff Needell was also there, while one of the famous motoring show’s key stars - The Stig - made an appearance.

All manner of new metal

Being a motor show, you’d expect there to be plenty of the very latest cars at the British Motor Show and this year didn’t disappoint. There were a number of new, used and classic cars on display, with attendees able to get up close and personal.

Not only were they positioned for visitors to check out, but many of the cars completed dynamic performances for fans, too.

A new supercar for little petrolheads

It wasn’t just full-size cars on display, but also a special new fully electric supercar designed for children aged 4-10. The Firefly Sport has been designed to get kids into cars from an early age while also showing them the benefits of electric power.

Produced by Young Driver Motor Cars, the Firefly is 2.1 metres long and only uses components from the UK.


One of the main attractions was Car SOS presenters Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townshend giving some behind-the-scenes stories from the popular television show. It gave attendees an insight into what goes into making a television show, as well as how the cars are saved.

Plus, visitors could meet some other members of the Car SOS team.

As you can see, this is a must-do for any motor enthusiast, so if you didn’t make it to the event this year make sure to add it to your calendar for next year.
