The critically acclaimed thriller, Driven, is one of many attractions to visitors and those die-hard shoppers at Autosport International this coming January.
Driven is set in the world of Formula 1, and the book’s author, Toby Vintcent, will be at the show. The book covers the competitive and cutthroat world of F1, and is aimed at fans and those unfamiliar with the sport. It has been praised by the likes of Murray Walker, London’s Evening Standard and F1 Racing Magazine.
Shoppers at Autosport International and fans of racing memorabilia will have lots to choose from at the show, with many different stalls to browse and buy from, with wares ranging from books to clothing to signed photographs.
Memorabilia Giant (stand 6930 in Hall 6) will have a selection of motoring memorabilia. The stand features a variety of signed photographs, including a limited edition signed Sir Stirling Moss picture from his victory at the Monaco Grand Prix in 1960. Neil Edwards, of Memorabilia Giant, says he is also bringing a new John Surtees signed print, which will be available for the first time at Autosport International – the picture will be from the Isle of Man TT, and features Surtees going over Ballaugh Bridge.
Steve Tappin Books (stand 6801 in Hall 6) is attending for the first time, and is bringing a selection of secondhand motoring books, ranging from around £10 all the way up to £1000.

Steve is also showing off a selection of limited edition prints of photos taken at the 1961 French Grand Prix
