More NEC finalists revealed
A further ten finalists have been announced for the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, Pride of Ownership awards, to be held on 9-11 November.
20 cars have been chosen from 100 entrants to appear at the show, where show-goers will vote for the car they judge to have the most interesting and heart-warming story. So far, 15 entrants have been announced, but with one entrant having dropped out, there are a further six finalists to be announced. A wide range of entrant vehicles appeared in the latest announcement, ranging from Gillian Caldicott’s 1922 Calthorpe All Weather Tourer, to Mandeep Sandhar’s 2000 Nissan Skyline. This year’s contest will also feature the award’s youngest finalist, 20-year-old Tahmid Haque, who is attending the show with his 1989 BMW M635CSi. Tahmid said: ‘I am very fortunate in only being 20 years old and having the opportunity to own and drive such rare cars. But the real happiness comes from being able to share these cars with other enthusiasts that appreciate them and I look for every opportunity to do so.’
Lancaster Insurance’s Senior Operations Manager, Andrew Evanson, said: ‘At the show, there is always a real buzz surrounding the Pride of Ownership as it showcases incredible cars with some fantastic stories behind them.
‘It’s always exciting to hear about what will be displayed and these ten cars will be a fantastic addition!’
Josh Lydiard’s 1972 Volkswagen Trekker. Lucas Reynolds’ 1982 Lotus Esprit Turbo.
