Entries for the 2015 Classic & Sports Car Club Awards are now open, and we’re waiting to hear whether your club has gone above and beyond the call of duty in the past 12 months.
The annual awards are held as part of the NEC Classic Motor Show celebrations in late November, and offer you the chance to shine the spotlight on your clubs achievements, whether they be a spectacular headline event or even an informative website. Don’t think it’s just for the big players, either: in the past, a club with just 300 members has collected the most prized gong – Club Magazine of the Year.
In order to give your club the recognition it deserves, we need your nominations for our most important categories (see below). The awards ceremony takes place at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, just a short walk from the NEC’s exhibition halls, at the end of the first day of the 13-15 November event.
Only one entry will be accepted per club for each awards, and entires should be accompanied by a letter from a senior officer confirming them as the club’s submissions.
Please send entries, with photos and brief explanations, by 16 October to David Evans on firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to David Evans, Club Awards 2015, Classic & Sports Car, Teddington Studios, Broom Road, Teddington, Middlesex TW11 9BE.
