Motor Racing legend Jacky Ickx to be guest of honour at The London Classic Car Show

Jacky Ickx, the world’s greatest all-round racing driver, will be honoured at The London Classic Car Show's Gala Evening on Thursday 23rd February and will appear live on stage to discuss his remarkable career with broadcaster and journalist Henry Hope-Frost.

Ickx will also be joined by five time Le Mans winner Derek Bell, MBE, as they team up again after sharing the top step of the 24 Hours podium three times.

Bell said: “Sharing a car with Jacky at Le Mans was one of the high points of my career. I am looking forward to sharing a stage with him at the London Classic Car Show and remembering some of the great times we had together.”

 

 The pair will also share the stage with two other Le Mans superstars – Emanuele Pirro, who claimed five victories for Audi, and Jürgen Barth, who won in 1977 sharing a Porsche with Ickx. Together the quartet can claim 17 victories at Le Sarthe.

Ickx will also officially open the inaugural Historic Motorsport International, the show’s new sister exhibition, at 12pm on Thursday 23rd. And as if that wasn’t enough, The London Classic Car Show will also hold a special display showcasing several of the iconic cars he raced and rallied.

“This is a huge privilege for me to be a guest of honour at these two shows in the heart of London,” said Ickx. “Whether it was winning Le Mans three times with Derek or competing at Silverstone and Brands Hatch, I have always had a wonderful relationship with the British racing community and that’s why I am so thrilled to have these very special dates in my diary.”
