NEC Clas­sic Motor Show to re­mem­ber the greats

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

CCW can ex­clu­sively re­veal that this year’s Lan­caster In­sur­ance Clas­sic Motor Show will have a he­roes and hero­ines theme – with Re­mem­brance Sun­day be­ing the driv­ing force be­hind it.

Or­gan­is­ers of the 2016 event are now urg­ing clubs and ex­hibitors to short­list the in­di­vid­u­als and ma­chines that have in­spired them and to pay trib­ute to them at the NEC on 11-13 Novem­ber. Ve­hi­cles from two World Wars will be one cen­tral fea­ture, along with the men and women who cre­ated and used them.

Dan Nwaokolo, show di­rec­tor, ex­plains the theme: ‘Ev­ery­one has a hero. And with it be­ing Re­mem­brance week­end, we sim­ply had to recog­nise the brave men and women who have served their coun­try, so it was the per­fect choice.’

The 250 ex­hibit­ing clubs will be en­cour­aged to ful­fill the show’s theme in what­ever way they want. Some clubs have say they’ll be cel­e­brate the lead­ers of their cho­sen mar­que, oth­ers the peo­ple who changed mo­tor­ing his­tory by set­ting a world record, and sev­eral the de­sign­ers of a rev­o­lu­tion­ary car.

Richard Mor­ley, op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor at Lan­caster In­sur­ance adds: ‘We’re re­ally ex­cited about this year’s theme as it gives real scope for clubs and ex­hibitors to make it their own and pay trib­ute to their own he­roes and hero­ines.’

Re­mem­brance Sun­day will be the last day of this year’s Lan­caster In­sur­ance Clas­sic Motor Show.
