Fuzz calls for BAME car club
Car SOS star says that it’s right to encourage an ‘interesting group of petrolheads’
Car SOS presenter and CCW technical guru, Fuzz Townshend, has called for a new club to be created to cater for black and minority ethnic (BAME) classic fans.
The TV presenter said that he would like to encourage the establishment of a club to represent these fans at events when car shows return to normal.
The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs said that it would welcome any initiative within the historic vehicle movement that increases the appeal and diversity of the community.
Communications director, Wayne Scott, said: ‘Our shared passion for historic vehicles creates a bond between people and groups that transcends all socio-economic backgrounds and we benefit from an incredibly welcoming and inclusive movement.
‘We would also hope that any club formed under the proposal outlined by Fuzz Townshend would also have the mission to support existing marquebased clubs to help them continue to widen their appeal.
‘Marque clubs are already welcoming and inclusive to people of all ethnic origin and backgrounds, so it’s comforting to read that Fuzz Townshend recognises the need to ensure that any new organisation does not fragment the historic vehicle community or cause divisions, but instead to add and complement its already increasingly rich diversity.’
