Clubs are the lifeblood of the clas­sic car in­dus­try, and it’s great that there’s now a set of in­dus­try gongs to cel­e­brate the move­ment’s achieve­ments. Al­though this is not the first set of club awards out there, this one is shap­ing up to be the defini­tive event – with na­tional recog­ni­tion, a sig­na­ture show, and some very im­por­tant back­ers.

But let’s not for­get the most im­por­tant el­e­ment of the Na­tional Club Awards: You. With­out the en­thu­si­asts who tire­lessly put their time in to sup­port the ve­hi­cles of their choice, there wouldn’t be events such as this; there wouldn’t be a huge in­ter­est in the scene to­day, and most im­por­tantly, many of the cars we see and ad­mire at clas­sic car shows would sim­ply no longer ex­ist.

So, al­though at the end of the awards night there will only be a hand­ful of vic­tors, in re­al­ity, ev­ery­one who does what they do for the cause is a win­ner in my book.

I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing how the awards night pans out – and fi­nally giv­ing some very gen­er­ous peo­ple the recog­ni­tion they de­serve.
