Act now, say NCCA or­gan­is­ers

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The or­gan­is­ers of the Na­tional Car Club Awards have said that they have al­ready had a high num­ber of en­tries – but there’s still time to en­sure that your club has a chance of win­ning.

Act­ing show direc­tor – and judg­ing panel chair­man – Lee Masters says that he is en­cour­ag­ing as many clubs as pos­si­ble to send in their en­tries be­fore the 6 Fe­bru­ary dead­line.

He says: ‘We’ve had a tremen­dous re­sponse so far from the var­i­ous car clubs and look for­ward to re­ceiv­ing more nom­i­na­tions be­fore the clos­ing date, es­pe­cially in the club Am­bas­sador of the Year and Life­time Achieve­ment cat­e­gories, where gen­uine club he­roes are cel­e­brated.’

The awards cer­e­mony takes place dur­ing this year’s Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics Clas­sic Car and Restora­tion Show, and will be held at the NEC in Birm­ing­ham on Satur­day, 1 April. The awards, which are backed by Clas­sic Car Weekly and the Fed­er­a­tion of Bri­tish His­toric Ve­hi­cle Clubs, pub­licly recog­nise the best events, mag­a­zines, web­sites from the na­tion’s clas­sic clubs, and the of­ten un­sung he­roes who work hard be­hind the scenes.

CCW edi­tor David Simister, who is one of the award judges, reck­ons that it will be an ex­tremely tough job pick­ing out the big­gest achieve­ments from this year’s list of en­tries.

He says: ‘I am de­lighted that there have al­ready been so many en­tries for this year’s awards – but there’s still time to make sure your club is in with a chance of win­ning.

‘Last year’s in­au­gu­ral awards high­lighted the work that clubs put in be­hind the scenes to make a dif­fer­ence to our hobby, and I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing even more de­serv­ing win­ners be­ing re­warded for all their ded­i­ca­tion and hard graft.’ www.na­tion­al­car­clubawards.com
