last call for Nec Pride dis­play

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -­clas­sic­mo­tor­

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.
