‘All of the win­ners went the ex­tra mile’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Britain’s Car Club Heroes - DAVID SIMISTER ED­I­TOR

Mike Brewer is spot on when he says that clubs are the driv­ing force be­hind our hobby, and I’m de­lighted that so many of their suc­cess sto­ries have been cel­e­brated at this year’s awards. Pick­ing out the win­ners from more than 200 en­tries was no easy task, but the one thing that con­nects all of this year’s win­ners is an el­e­ment of go­ing the ex­tra mile. Events like the Jensen Own­ers’ Club’s Turin run, hard work­ing club devo­tees like Rosie Hamil­ton and big achieve­ments like the Sport­ing Bears’ fundrais­ing all make me hugely proud to be in­volved in a scene that’s pos­i­tively thriv­ing right now. These awards are proof that any tales you might hear about clubs be­ing in de­cline are cob­blers. What I’d love to see next year are more clubs pick­ing up prizes that re­flect in­no­va­tion and hard work.
