MOTORSPORT enthusiasts were wowed by fast cars at Autosport International.

The event at Birmingham NEC drew the crowds with famous faces such as Sir Jackie Stewart, F1 star Paul Di Resta and former BBC F1 presenter Jake Humphrey.

The F1 Racing Grid allowed visitors the chance to take a close look at the grand prix cars while the live action arena, featuring the UK's largest indoor race track, was the place to go for adrenaline fuelled races.

Visitors could also get in on the action by taking passenger rides and karting challenges

And Solihull artist Ian Cook from Popbang Colour was on hand to show off his art created by using radio controlled cars.
