VSCC Club Stand Honoured at the NEC Classic Motor Show
The VSCC enjoyed a spectacular 3-days at the NEC this past weekend for the annual Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, where the Club Stand was honoured with the prestigious ‘Most Interesting Selection of Cars’ award by Classic and Sports Car Magazine.
Led by Club Member, Duncan Pittaway’s celebrated 1911 Fiat S76 ‘Beast of Turin’ – which drew huge crowds throughout the duration of the Show – the Club’s eclectic line-up of Vintage cars was chosen as the best display of the internationally renowned event, widely regarded as the UK’s Biggest & Best Classic Motor Show.
In addition to the Fiat, there was an array of machinery on display, representing just some of the Club’s many other activities, including: a 1927 Delage DIS Tourer, 1911 Talbot Model M Saloon, 1928 Hotchkiss Saloon, the unique 1928 Lafitte Type D, and ‘Gizmo’, Club Director, Tania Brown’s 1930 Austin 7 Ulster Trials Car, complete with obligatory mud ‘fresh’ from the Club’s Welsh Trial.
The Award was accepted on behalf of the Club by long-time Member and VSCC Supporter, Jeremy Holden, who was attending with Holden Vintage & Classic Ltd, his leading business in Classic and Vintage car parts, motoring accessories and clothing.
The Show was hailed as a great success by Club Directors, Ian Ferguson and Roger Ballard, who led the team of volunteers, with much interest in the VSCC, the Club’s activities and several new Club Members signed-up over a busy three days.
