Emanuele Pirro will join a number of other racing legends at the Historic Motorsport International show taking place next week, 23-26 February at ExCeL, London, and will be reunited with two iconic cars from his career.

The five times Le Mans winner will share the stage with the Formula 1 Scuderia Italia Dallara F191 from 1991 and the Audi A4 Quattro ST he used successfully to defend his German Supertouring Championship title in 1996.

Pirro, who joined Dallara in 1990 after half a season with Benetton, partnered the Italian team in taking sixth place in Monaco, and the F191 will be one of several historical cars from the sport on display, as part of an exhibition put together by the Historic European Formula One Race Car Entrants organisation, better known as FORCE.

The 1997 Audi is the last racing A4 Quattro to be built, and is a token to the dominance Audi achieved in Supertouring racing; Pirro and Audi shared success in Germany and Italy, and Audi in the UK. It will sit on Dunlop‘s display alongside a Jaguar D-type. Despite being separated by half a century, the tyre manufacturer supplied both with rubber.

Pirro will be at the Dunlop stand 2.30pm on the Thursday afternoon (23 February) and being interviewed in the Supagard Theatre at 1:30pm on Friday (24 February).
