    Background: ENGLAND, BIRMINGHAM

    Formula One cars roared through the streets of Birmingham in central England on October 14, but not at racing speed. They were all Vintage cars, lovingly restored by their owners. The rally, or "Traffic Light Grand Prix" as it's known, signalled the start of this year's motor show. Thousands turned out to watch the vehicles as they wound their way through the city's streets. Car enthusiasts in the area are hoping the "Traffic Light Grand Prix" and motor show will lead to better and greater things - such as a modern Formula One Grand Prix near the city.
