Act now, say NCCA organisers
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
