Historic Motoring Awards 2018 – Vote for Car of the Year!

Historic Motoring Awards 2018 – Vote for Car of the Year! Classic and Performance Car

We’ve nominated six of the most important cars from the historic motoring world. The Octane readers’ choice will be crowned at the 2018 Historic Motoring Awards


The six-strong shortlist for the Historic Motoring Awards Car of the Year has been announced – and the winner will be decided by your votes. The cars on the shortlist are the most important to have emerged, re-emerged, come to prominence, or had the biggest impact on historic motoring in the past year.
 
The candidates were arrived at after protracted and heated discussions between the Octane team and a panel of trusted experts. Voting is open now at www.historicmotoringawards.co.uk and will close on 25 September. 
 
The winner will be revealed at a glittering evening ceremony in London on 25 October, taking place in the ballroom of the Art Deco Sheraton Grand London Park Lane Hotel. Now in their eighth year, the Historic Motoring Awards are presented by Octane, held in association with EFG Private Bank, and honour the elite of the historic motoring world, from the finest restorations to the most outstanding clubs.
