Brundle confirmed for Autosport International

Martin Brundle joins the likes of 2009 F1 World champion Jenson Button and former F1 racer Allan McNish on the bill for the 2010 Autosport International Show.
Former Grand Prix driver and BBC F1 commentator Martin Brundle will entertain the crowds at Autosport International, held at the NEC Birmingham on 14-17 January 2010, it has been announced.

Brundle's illustrious F1 driving and television careers span 26 years and over 400 Grand's Prix. He has driven for many legendary teams, including Williams, Benetton, and McLaren, racing against such greats as Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher.

He was also victorious with Jaguar at the Le Mans and Daytona 24-hour races on his way to a World Sportscar title.

In 1997, he moved alongside motorsport legend Murray Walker, co-commentating to tens of millions of English-speaking F1 fans around the world.

Brundle will be joined at the show by his racing son Alex, who has been making his mark in the sport.

While his father will recount his 2009 season from the world of F1, Alex - who has benefited from his father's hands-on management - will share his experiences from his first season in Formula Two, which returned to action this year.

"I had a great time at Autosport International in '09," said Martin. "There's something for everyone and I'm looking forward to returning in 2010, as I have always thoroughly enjoyed the ever-improving show over the years.

"Alex stepped-up to the significant challenge of his first season in F2, and the show will provide a great opportunity for him to meet his fans."

"We are thrilled to be able to welcome Martin back to the show," added Autosport International Show director Ian France. "He is extremely popular with F1 fans and I am sure he will have plenty of stories from the paddock to share."

Show-goers will get the chance to see Alex get behind the wheel in the Live Action Arena during the weekend. Meanwhile also in attendance will be 2009 F1 World champion Jenson Button, former F1 racer Allan McNish, and all the cars from the 2009 World Championship on the F1 Racing Grid.
