TouringCars.Net brings you a selection of the best photos from the display of touring cars at the Autosport International show, where old and new racers alike are on show to the public this weekend.

AmD Tuning took the opportunity to reveal the new livery for their Honda Civics which will be raced by Sam Tordoff and Rory Butcher in the coming season, having acquired the cars from Eurotech Racing at the end of 2018.

Motorbase Performance revealed Ollie Jackson and Tom Chilton as their drivers for 2019, although the team have opted to refine rather than overhaul their paint job for the coming season.

Older saloon cars are also on show, including the 1989 and 1990 Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth as raced by Tim Harvey and built by Andy Rouse Engineering – it is believed to be one of the best preserved RS500 specimens still around.

Although not a BTCC car (or as it was then-known, BSCC), Mega Bertha is also on display. The car was to be built to race by the legendary Gerry Marshall in the Super Saloons championship in the late 1970s, to replace the outgoing Vauxhall Firenza, but the project was abandoned and it was unfinished. The car has more recently been built and completed.
