Like before, there will be a variety of different styles, subjects, and even materials used. Visitors will be able to see traditional oil and watercolor paints mixed with 3D printing. The QR codes are also another first, and it will be displayed so that viewers can get information about the artist and their works.

The artists that would be part of the exhibit are some of the best in their field like Tim Layzell, John Ketchell, Barry Rowe, Roy Putt, and Paul Dove. Sculptors Johnny Ambrose and Robin Bark is also part of the exhibit. Art of Motoring regulars like ‘painting vicar’ Adam Gompertz, watercolor artist Neil Collins, Simon Britnell, and Martin Tomlinson, are also present.

Former Le Mans winner and Grand Prix driver Stefan Johansson is one of the first-time exhibitors in the event. The famous Swede was a Ferrari and McLaren F1 driver, and he picked up the brush after the death of his friend Elio de Angelis in a testing accident at Paul Ricard in 1986. He resided in Britain for some time, although he now does his work in a Los Angeles studio. He has a variety of works and has some abstracts that is reminiscent of different corners of famous racetracks.
