Racing legend and former moustache-sporting F1 World Champion Nigel Mansell will be joining TV presenter Fiona Bruce in officially opening the 2014 Motorhome and Caravan Show on Tuesday 14th October at Birmingham's NEC.
Long time caravanner Mansell will also be appearing in the Experts' Theatre to tell stories about his career, his holidays and overall experiences throughout his life. It's been hinted that there will also be an opportunity to quiz Nigel on his opinions regarding this year's championship too!
Nigel is the only driver in history to win both the F1 and Indy Car titles in successive seasons. However, off the track, he's undertaken a passionate caravanning hobby with his family for over 20 years.
Speaking of his time touring, Nigel says: "I have enjoyed caravan holidays for decades, and continue to do so. My family and I enjoy the freedom that comes with caravanning, and we've regularly visited Wales over the years to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.
However, it's not just the past that he's thinking of. Nigel will more than likely be flicking through the show's exhibitor list to make a potential purchase for the future too!
Nigel continues: "It's amazing to see how far the industry has developed in recent years. There are some great looking vehicles out there that are more technologically advanced than ever. I'm delighted to open the show and will no doubt be browsing the new models myself!"
