Coulthard career on show at NEC.


British Formula One veteran David Coulthard will have his long career in the top flight marked by a special celebration at next year's curtain-raising Autosport International exhibition.

As part of the celebration, part of the show will be devoted to cars and karts from the David Coulthard Museum, bringing the priceless machines down from Twynholm to display at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.

Autosport International has been a regular event for me over the years, so it's quite fitting that we should collaborate on displaying the cars that I have been lucky to drive throughout the years," the Scot said, "I have been at the show at the beginning of most of the seasons that will be represented!”

A collection of seven cars and two karts, highlighting Coulthard's career from karting in the 1980s to his current Formula One successes, will be displayed, including the recently-acquired Red Bull Racing RB2 which he drove to podium glory in Monaco in 2006.

The Scot will be present for both public days of the show and, in addition to giving interviews on the central stage, will take part in autograph sessions at the F1 display.

“We are extremely pleased to celebrate David's illustrious career with him,” said show director Ian France, “I'm sure fans will be delighted to see the cars he raced throughout his career displayed at the show. We feel this will be a fitting tribute to his outstanding Formula One racing career.”

scully, i isually knock DC, but this refers to his recent years in f1, where he has clearly lost it. but in his early days, he was not bad. didnt he come 2nd to schumi in the WDC. his problem was the strictures of mclaren, who dictated every word he said and every action he took. he only became "human" when he joined red bull, but by then, hewas on the way down. he should have retired then , instead

rich ard you are right it was 2001 he came second to schumi while driving for mclaren with 65 points to schumi's 123 points. I do like dc he has been a good ambasador for F1 in the years he has been in the sport. I think even in his early days at williams he lacked that little extra bit that made a wdc dont know why he just never stood out from the crowd like other drivers but having said that he is an all round one of the nice guys in F1.
