Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The clas­sic world’s best events, club magazines and un­sung he­roes have been cel­e­brated at an awards cer­e­mony backed by CCW.

The MG Car Club, Rover Sports Reg­is­ter, Jensen Own­ers’ Club and TR Reg­is­ter were among the win­ners at the Na­tional Car Club Awards, held at the NEC last Satur­day (1 April) dur­ing the course of the Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics Clas­sic Car and Restora­tion Show.

CCW ed­i­tor David Simister joined Federation of Bri­tish and His­toric Ve­hi­cles chair­man David Whale,

Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics ed­i­tor Danny Hop­kins and Tourism Ire­land’s David Boyce to judge more than 200 en­tries across the 16 cat­e­gories, which in­cluded prizes for those sup­port­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of clas­sic fans. High­lights in­cluded the Sport­ing Bears Mo­tor Club pick­ing up the Judges’ Spe­cial Recog­ni­tion Award, the Jensen Own­ers’ Club win­ning two prizes for its work mark­ing the In­ter­cep­tor’s 50th an­niver­sary last year, and Rosie Hamil­ton pick­ing up the Life­time Achieve­ment Award.

Wheeler Deal­ers pre­sen­ter and awards host Mike Brewer praised the clubs for their con­tin­ued work sup­port­ing Bri­tain’s clas­sic car move­ment, and for their stands at this year’s show.

He says: ‘Car clubs drive this pas­sion and en­thu­si­asm for an amaz­ing hobby and the in­dus­try would be noth­ing with­out them.

‘It’s clubs, with their wealth of knowl­edge, that bring new peo­ple into this hobby.’
