last call for Nec Pride display
Owners wanting to win the coveted Pride of Ownership display at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show in November have nine days to enter. You can find out how to enter below. The first five entries for this year’s display have also been revealed.
Paul Riley’s 1986 Audi Quattro (1) takes the first spot with a car he yearned for since he was a child. Next is an 1935 Auburn Speedster (2), one of just 143 produced, belonging to Roger Learmonth from East Sussex.
Then there’s Stuart Turp’s Barnsley based 1969 Ford Capri 1600 GTX LR (3). It was crowned winner of the Pride of Ownership display at this year’s Practical Classics Restoration and Classic Car Show. As part of the prize, he gets to defend his Pride of Ownership title at the big Birmingham show.
A 1976 Citroën Ami Super (4) owned by Neil Osborn from Peterborough, Cambs is next. Bought by Neil in 1984, it has less than 35,000 miles on the clock. Fifth is a 1973 Alpine Renault A110 (5) owned by David Holden from Sheffield. He says: ‘ The joy was in the driving rather than the polishing just for show, and so I took to the hills and have completed more than 30 hill climb and sprint events.’
The Pride of Ownership display is held as part of the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show at Birmingham’s NEC from 11-13 November. The overall winner will be decided by visitors, with the display growing to 15-20 cars.
