Classics World



Entries are now being invited for the Lancaster Insurance Pride of Ownership competitio­n, with 20 places available in the autumn 2022 final to be held at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with discovery+ on 11th-13th November at Birmingham's NEC. Open to privately-owned vehicles built before 31st December 2002, entrants are asked to share the story behind their classic with the judges – whilst the standard of the vehicle is considered, it is not a concours competitio­n so not just about which is the shiniest.

To enter, owners can submit an entry form (which can be found on the show website) and two images of the vehicle, including one full picture. Only one vehicle can be entered per owner. More details are on the show’s website at www.necclassic­motorshow. com/show-highlights/prideof- ownership.

The chosen finalists will receive two tickets for each of the show days, free parking throughout and a commemorat­ive certificat­e. The winner and two runners up will all receive trophies and a year’s free car insurance from Lancaster Insurance up to the value of £250 (T&C apply). The overall winner will also be offered the chance to display their car at the next event held by the organisers – as well as the obvious bragging rights!

Winners to date have included a wide range of makes and models, from Ted Brookes’ 1961 Morris Minor Million, Paul Hibbert’s 1972 Porsche 914 and John Smith’s 1964 Volkswagen Type 2 Deluxe Microbus to Rob Sargent’s 1969 Ford Cortina Savage, Jake Clappison’s 1979 Triumph Spitfire, and Laura Godtschalk’s 1992 Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet (which won the Spring 2022 final).
