A word from our sponsor:

Lancaster Insurance Services Ltd was formed in 1984 as the insurance division for the MG Owners Club (now independent). The knowledge and experience we have gained over nearly three decades has enabled us to build strong relationships with many of the UK’s leading insurers.

As a specialist intermediary, we can arrange insurance cover by choosing a scheme from our carefully selected panel of insurers, to meet the needs of classic car owners and provide club members with competitive premiums, excellent policy benefits, up to 25% discount and a first class service.

Lancaster Insurance has a strong affinity with car clubs and truly appreciates the enthusiasm they generate for all makes and models of classic cars. We believe that it is vitally important to support the very clubs who keep the classic car industry alive and have a number of ways in which we can provide financial support to clubs and help them attract more members.

We would welcome the opportunity to discuss our services with you in more detail and explore how we could work together in the future to our mutual benefit.
