Liz Halliday joined fellow British Women Racing Drivers Club members at the Chelsea AutoLegends Festival last weekend (September 1/2) as stars from across the motorsport world descended on the London-based event.

With more than 500 cars on display, including vintage Formula 1 and Le Mans machinery, the festival’s third running attracted a bumper crowd numbering in the thousands to Chelsea’s Royal Hospital grounds.

And, with AutoLegends raising funds for a worthy cause as well as seeing the BWRDC celebrate its 50th anniversary as part of the Castrol Women in Motorsport display, it was a thoroughly rewarding weekend for Liz and her fellow club members.

The event began on Saturday evening at the Royal Hospital’s Great Hall with a champagne reception, black-tie dinner and auction in aid of Walking with the Wounded, a British-based charity that supports re-training and education for injured servicemen and women.

The following day festivities moved to the Grade I listed building’s grounds where Liz participated in the HR Owen Supercar Parade aboard a Lamborghini Aventador. Meanwhile visitors to the show were treated to a feast of stunning machinery while a host of racing legends – including five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell – were in attendance throughout the day.

As well as being busy behind the wheel, Liz was also called into action in front of the camera, making use of her increasing broadcast experience to handle some ad-hoc interviews and television duties for Motors TV.

Liz Halliday: “It was an honour to be invited to Chelsea AutoLegends this year and to have the opportunity to represent the BWRDC at such a fantastic event. The fact that it was in aide of Walking with the Wounded made it all the more worthwhile.

“Getting behind the wheel of the Aventador on Sunday was certainly a cool experience, though being part of a parade meant I couldn’t push it as much as I might have liked! Still, it’s a great looking machine, something that we definitely weren’t short on this weekend. I’d like to thank HR Owen for providing such a fantastic line-up of cars and the organisers for a great event, one the BWRDC and all of girls involved were thrilled to be a part of.”
