Footman James’ stand (4-425) will host The Car Years presenters at this year’s Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show on Friday 22 March at the NEC Birmingham.

Classic car enthusiasts are in for a treat on the first day of the upcoming Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show as Footman James announces it will host The Car Years presenters, Alex Riley and Vicki Butler-Henderson, on its stand on Friday 22 March.

The presenting duo will be sharing news about their new TV programme live from the Footman James stand (4-425) throughout the day at the show and will be hosting a meet and greet at 2pm.

Visitors to the show and followers of Footman James’ social media pages will be the first to find out where The Car Years will be aired, as well as hear quips and behind-the-scenes stories about the new TV programme. Alex and Vicki will also be appearing on the Live Stage at the show on Friday for a Q&A session at 1.30pm.

“Alex and Vicki have had such fun filming The Car Years and have some brilliant stories to share with classic car fans at the show,” said David Bond, Managing Director at Footman James. “Those that can make the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show will be able to hear live from our stand, but we’ll also be sharing the news as it happens from our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages too.”

The Car Years is a brand-new programme, hosted by well-known presenters and classic car fans, Alex Riley and Vicki Butler-Henderson. A fresh take on a classic car TV series, the premise is simple. Partnered with Footman James, each episode of The Car Years will focus on a specific year of motoring. Vicki will choose her favourite, Alex will have his contender, and both must convince the expert judges to win at the end of each episode, thus crowning a certain model the car of its year.

Each judge doubles up as expert commentators, telling the stories and backgrounds behind the cars. Famous judges include Chris Routledge, Managing Director of leading auction house Coys; Quentin Willson, presenter and journalist; Karun Chandhok, former F1 star and F1 pundit, as well as author, ex-Top Gear and current The Grand Tour script editor Richard Porter.

The Footman James’ Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show stand will be open for the duration of the show (22-24 March) at the NEC in Birmingham. With a classic car display, as well as its team of experts on hand to discuss specialist vehicle insurance, Footman James invites guests to its stand throughout the event.
