Hollywood Stunt Driver and Former Stig, Ben Collins, will be live at the London Motor & Tech Show
As revealed last month, The WMS Group are delighted to announce that we shall be attending the London Motor and Tech Show 2019.
We are also very happy to confirm that former Stig and WMS Safe & Sound brand ambassador Ben Collins will be joining us at this exciting event.
This year’s show will comprise of three distinctly huge halls including a Live Arena and Live Stage. The Arena will host astonishing stunts, displays, and demonstrations plus a host of motoring legends and celebrities who will also be present on the Live Stage and walk the floor meeting guests and visitors.
Taking place from the 16th to the 19th of May 2019 at London ExCel this year’s show will feature more cars, more content and more fun. With Supercars and Electric cars to current models from manufacturers and the latest technology in the market place.
“I’m stoked to be taking part in the London Motor & Tech Show where the huge revival in British automotive engineering will be on display as well as the finest machines from around the world. There’s never been a more exciting time with all the new technology flooding into our cars and London is the best place to experience them first hand”
“From my days as The Stig I learned to expect the unexpected. It prepared me well for a career as a stunt driver which has taken me all over the world on movies ranging from “James Bond” to “Fast and Furious” and at times had me working in another galaxy altogether…”
“I doubled “Han Solo” during the speeder chase at the opening of the movie and the design of the speeder was a fine example of automotive ingenuity. A small team of special effects engineers built them from scratch and managed to produce a bullet-proof machine that could jump, slide and go very fast in either front, rear or four wheel drive. Even the afterburners were practical designs rather than CGI, which caused the crew to give it a wide berth during filming”
“More recently I turned the clock back to 1966 for a role on a movie releasing later this year based on the epic battle between Ford and Ferrari at the Le Mans 24 hours. The result may be a matter of record but the movie will reveal the breath taking story that went on behind the scenes”
“This year will also mark the third anniversary of my role as a Brand Ambassador for Safe & Sound, whose warranties have been giving buyers the re-assurance they need at the point of purchase and beyond. Thanks to them and the organisers of the London Motor & Tech Show, I’ll be joining a pair of icons on the Live Stage for a lively review of some of our favourite motors”
“The London Motor Show is even more hands-on and action-packed than ever before so make sure to add it to your diary and we’ll see you there!”
Please be advised that Ben will be at The London Motor & Tech Show on Saturday 18th May. Performing in the Live Arena at 12.30pm and then he will be on the main stage at 1.30pm with Mike Brewer.
