Autosport Show – 14/01/2017

The Autosport International Show at NEC Birmingham is one of the largest motorsport shows in Europe, and I had the pleasure to gain a media pass to document the event. Mainly to follow Abbi, we filmed her receive different awards and her interviews with other media peoples.

Our first stop was to the British Women’s Racing Driver’s Club Stand, where we met Lorraine Gathercole who is Vice Chair of the organisation. She then introduced us to the three nominees of the Gold Star Elite award: Trish Cecile-Pritchard, Kate Milner and Abbi Pulling! After a quick interview with the three of these (with our extremely limited equipment), we ran over to the MSA stand (Motorsport Association) to film the ceremony. Unfortunately, Abbi didn’t win, but the equally talented Kate Milner did and it was great to see Abbi nominated and recognised for her achievements in Super One.

The MSA also had a Karting Magazine presentation, where Abbi received an award also. After this, we head over to the Super One stand for the official award ceremonies, where we saw Abbi was given her trophy for coming second and her new “Number 2” plate, which she will ride with on her kart this year.

One thing we gained, is that Abbi had changed her tune a little from when I last spoke to her in September. She now is pursuing becoming a Formula 1 driver as her ultimate goal. This is an exciting new dynamic for the documentary!

The Super One season starts March, where we will be following Abbi during her racing season!
