New awards salute the driv­ing forces in Bri­tain’s clas­sic car move­ment

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News Analysis -

The best events, club mag­a­zines and unsung he­roes were the stars of a new awards cer­e­mony cel­e­brat­ing the hard work clubs put into the clas­sic move­ment.

The Volvo Own­ers’ Club, Jowett Car Club and Club Tri­umph are among the win­ners at the in­au­gu­ral Na­tional Car Club Awards, en­dorsed by the Fed­er­a­tion of Bri­tish His­toric Ve­hi­cle Clubs and held at the Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics Restora­tion and Clas­sic Car Show at the NEC.

CCW editor Keith Adams joined show di­rec­tor Dan Nwaokolo, FBHVC chair­man David Whale and Tourism Ire­land’s David Boyce to judge en­tries across 16 cat­e­gories, in­clud­ing ones for clubs who sup­port the next gen­er­a­tion of clas­sic fans and for out­stand­ing use of so­cial me­dia.

The Volvo Own­ers’ Club picked up the prize for the most out­stand­ing en­try, while the Ri­ley Mo­tor Club’s Vic­tor Ri­ley was given the life­time achieve­ment award. There were also five prizes given out for the best stands and clas­sics at the show, in­clud­ing one recog­nis­ing the Jowett Car Club’s work­ing on cars on its stand.

‘There were more than 180 en­tries into the awards, and the qual­ity of all was ex­cep­tional,’ says Dan Nwaokolo, di­rec­tor of the Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics Restora­tion and Clas­sic Car Show. ‘I’d like to thank all the clubs for the hard work they put into the clas­sic car move­ment, and con­grat­u­late ev­ery­one who was short­listed.’
