MOVING MOTOR SHOW TO HOST 60 YEARS OF ALPINE CELEBRATIONS
Alpine will celebrate its 60th anniversary in style at the Moving Motor Show presented by the AA in association with The Telegraph on Thursday 25, June.
The historic French brand can boast on-track success dating back to 1963, as well as an enviable reputation for producing some of the most iconic road-going vehicles ever, since its inception in 1955.
A number of these legendary road and circuit vehicles will come together on the grounds of Goodwood House for the first time ever, including an original 1955 A106, the iconic A110, the 1978 Le Mans-winning A442b and the A450b currently competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC).
The sixth Moving Motor Show at Goodwood is expected to attract crowds in excess of 34,000, with many lucky visitors able to view and drive brand new vehicles before they are officially on sale.
Alpine is also developing a brand new sports car predicted to be unveiled in 2016.
Expected to be the high point of the year so far in Alpine’s anniversary year, the display will enthral enthusiasts, while celebrating the triumphant re-emergence of the Alpine brand as well as its heritage.
The full list of models that will be on display in the F1 Paddock area in a dedicated Alpine enclosure is as follows:
– A110 1600 S
– A110 1600 Groupe 4
– A442b (the 1978 Le Mans 24 Hours-winning car)
– A450b (current WEC racer)
As well as great success in the world of rallying in the 1960s and ’70s, Alpine has also been victorious at the Le Mans 24 Hours and won European Le Mans Series titles in 2013 and 2014, cementing its place in motorsport’s hall of fame in the minds of race enthusiasts.
Last year’s Moving Motor Show was a complete sell out, attracting fans from across the UK to the West Sussex countryside location. With demand higher than ever, ticket availability has been increased for 2015.
A record number of new cars are expected to be revealed at this year’s event and more than 18 manufacturers will showcase their latest models. New car buyers can even test-drive some of the cars on display on Goodwood’s legendary Hillclimb course.
Visitors to the Moving Motor Show also get an exclusive sneak preview to the Festival of Speed, as well as access to the Formula 1 Paddock presented by Sky Sports F1, Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ Concors d’Elegance, Michelin Supercar Paddock and all of the automotive show stands, which will boast the widest range of new products in the 22-year history of the Festival.
