Lucky Strike BAR Honda will take centre stage at next month's MPH '03 motor show, which will be held at London's Earls Court exhibition centre over the weekend of 11-14 December.

The event, hosted by Top Gear television presenter Jeremy Clarkson, takes the traditional motor show format and added a fast-paced live action arena with stunts, demonstrations and races. BAR drivers Jenson Button, Takuma Sato and Anthony Davidson will all be participating during the four-day motoring extravaganza.

BAR will be the only Formula One team appearing live on stage at the event, providing an exclusive insight into the team in action, as well as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the pressure of an F1 pit-stop at first hand. During the live show, audience members will be chosen at random and trained up to be a member of the BAR pit-crew, before performing a tyre change on the main stage. Following their nine seconds of fame, one of the BAR drivers will be reviewing the performances with Clarkson to measure them against the high standards of the regular BAR pit-crew.

The team will also bring another element of the F1 paddock to the show by displaying its motorhome in the main hall. A range of pit-stop equipment will be on display around the motorhome and the drivers will be on hand at various points throughout the day to answer questions from the fans and to sign autographs. Official BAR merchandise will also be on sale at the event, giving people a real chance to look part of the team.

The live show will be run on all four days and tickets for MPH '03 are available from the ticket hotline on 0870 060 6030.
