Motor show 2013 dates
It’s 2013, and what better way to celebrate the start of a new year than with a quick round up of all the important motor shows and car events taking place over the next 12 months.
Here we’ve selected 15 of our favourites from the 2013 UK motor show calendar, and added 15 more from around the world, just for good measure.
This isn’t an exhaustive list – not least because some popular events such as Top Gear Live haven’t announced when they’re taking place yet, while others, such as the Goodwood Breakfast Club are too numerous to list – but if there’s anything else you feel is worth a mention let us know.
