Finalists Revealed for National Car Club Awards

National Car Club Awards

The finalists in the inaugural National Car Club Awards, in association with Tourism Ireland, have been revealed. Endorsed by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs, the overall Award winners will be announced at the awards dinner on Saturday 5th March at Birmingham’s NEC.

Daniel Nwaokolo, Director of The National Car Club Awards, said: “We had over 180 nominations for the inaugural year of the awards which is outstanding. The level of entries was extremely high and the quality of car clubs entering was the who’s who of car clubs.

“In some categories we had over 30 entries which made short listing in these categories very difficult indeed. For a car club just to get short listed is a huge achievement as the standard was at such a premium level.”

A total of 16 awards will be presented at the glittering ceremony, hosted after the Practical Classics Restoration and Classic Car Show. Nine of the awards categories have announced the shortlist of finalists while another six awards relate to the clubs’ involvement in the Practical Classics Restoration and Classic Car Show, and will be decided by the judges on the Saturday.

There will then be a ‘Judges Special Recognition Award’ presented to a club that the panel feel has gone the extra mile in the classic motoring movement.
