The first and second heats of the Footman James Car of the Year competition have already taken place at this year’s Wheels Day show and the Footman James Bristol Classic Show, but we will be rolling out all over the UK for the rest of the show season at the following events:
- July 1-2nd Stars & Stripes, Tatton Park, Cheshire
- July 9th Rally of the Giants, Blenheim Palace, Oxon
- July 23rd Damn Yankees, North Weald, Essex
- July 28-30th Mopar Euro Nats, Santa Pod, Northants
- Aug 19-20th Atomic, Sywell, Northants
- Sep 30-Oct 1st Prescott Hill Climb, Cheltenham, Glocs.
- Nov 10-12th NEC Classic Motor Show, Birmingham, NEC
We’ll be looking out for suitable candidates at these shows, there’s no entry criteria; ideally cars should be either be original or restored and ‘stock’, without aftermarket wheels or such like. Heat winners are guaranteed a place on the Classic American stand at the Classic Motor Show, held at Birmingham’s NEC and also win a bespoke hand-cast brass trophy, a cheque for £100 and a feature in the magazine (if their car hasn’t already been featured).
