Published at: 30th May 2022

Autovia titles Auto Express, evo and Octane are pleased to confirm their media partnership with The British Motor Show 2022. The experiential show will be held in the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre from 18 to 21 August 2022.

Autovia is the only media portfolio to cover the entire UK car market from performance and classic cars to the mass market; its titles include Auto Express, BuyaCar, Car Throttle, DrivingElectric, Car Buyer, evo and Octane.

Autovia editorial director and Auto Express editor-in-chief Steve Fowler commented: “We’re delighted to support The British Motor Show once again following the success of the event last year – and we have high hopes for this year’s. 

“We Brits love our cars and with over 40 million cars on the road – and the need to go electric fast approaching – there’s never been a better time to visit a motor show to see so many different cars all in one place”.

Attending the show every day will be Auto Express chief columnist Mike Rutherford, who is also honorary president of the British Motor Show. Rutherford said, “If you consider yourself a car nut, the reborn British Motor Show isn’t optional, it’s compulsory.”

The British Motor Show will celebrate all things automotive: past, present and future. It promises to deliver cars, entertainment and family fun as well as a live action arena full of stunts, supercars, classic car parades, group tests and driving challenges.

Andy Entwistle, British Motor Show CEO, said, “The countdown has begun and we’re convinced that in 2022 we have the ultimate automotive spectacle. A fantastic, family-friendly, fun-focused event that celebrates everything that’s great about cars – new, old, quirky or different. It’s the most fun motor show in the world – and it’s great to have Autovia on board as car lovers themselves.”

The British Motor Show will be held from 18 to 21 August 2022 at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre. Building on the success of last year’s show, The Live Arena – featuring stunt shows, car reviews, supercars and more – will be hosted again by Wheeler Dealer Mike Brewer, with help from petrolhead and Olympic silver-medal sprinter, Iwan Thomas. The Family Zone will also be extended in 2022 to feature a unique car-themed escape room, as well as popular features from 2021 including car wrapping and The Racing Bug’s racing simulator.

Ticket prices are held from 2021 at £18.50 each, or £37 for a family of four and are available at

The show will be opened by the British Army Lightning Bolts Display Team.
