We’ve already identified our personal highlights from this year’s ever-popular and ever-eclectic Revival Car Show (which you can find here and here), but now we have an official verdict – the public have had their say.
Visitors to the show, presented by Stewart Miller & Peter James Insurance, which featured nearly 5000 tax-exempt vehicles over the course of the Revival weekend, were invited to vote for one of ten cars each day, from shortlists drawn up by none other than Mr Goodwood himself, Sir Stirling Moss. And those votes have now been counted…
Friday’s winner was an immaculate 1961 Lotus Elite. Belonging to Club Elite member Adam Moran, it was purchased by Adam’s father, Bill, in 1962, when it was just six months old. It has remained in the Moran family ever since, and was passed down to Adam after his father passed away last year.
TR Register member Simon Leifer’s stunning 1968 Triumph TR5 was crowned Saturday’s winner, and Paul Weston’s treasured 1963 Lotus Cortina was named the third and final winner on Sunday.
Each winner collects a range of prizes, including an engraved silver salver, a magnum of Veuve Clicquot Champagne, a voucher worth up to £100 to spend on a policy with Stewart Miller & Peter James Insurance. And, of course, tickets to Goodwood Revival 2016.
Peter James, director of Stewart Miller & Peter James Insurance said: ‘It was fantastic to meet so many dedicated and passionate classics enthusiasts, who have invested so much time, care and effort into preserving the heritage of these beautiful and often very rare classics.’
The Revival Car Show, including the Best in Show competition, will once again feature at the 2016 Goodwood Revival, dates for which will be announced very soon.
