Enter your vote for Historic Car of the Year, with the winner due to be announced at the International Historic Motoring Awards ceremony in November
The International Historic Motoring Awards are quickly approaching, and enthusiasts are invited to vote for their Car of the Year. The awards ceremony will take place at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London, on 19 November. The nominees are:
The Baillon Ferrari California
When the Baillon family barnfinds emerged, the collection attracted publicity around the world. A few weeks later, auction house Artcurial displayed the collection in an eerily lit hall at Rétromobile, to yet more acclaim. The start of the collection was the ex-Alain Delon Ferrari, which has since been recommissioned and displayed at Pebble Beach.
Fiat S76 ‘The Beast of Turin’
A video of the engineer Duncan Pittaway firing up his 12-year-long restoration project speed record car went ‘viral’. The oil and rubber laid down on Lord March’s driveway are already the stuff of legend. And the sight of Duncan tearing up the Goodwood and Chateau Impney hillclimbs- spitting flames all the way- will be remembered by thousands.
Land Rover Series I ‘Huey’
To mark the end of the line for the Land Rover as we know it, the company gathered together its finest heritage vehicles and drove them all around the UK. The Land Rover most widely admired was HUE 166- or ‘Huey’- the oldest known survivor.
Mercedes-Benz 300SLR ‘722’
Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson achieved one of the greatest feats ever in motor sport history, averaging 97.9mph over 1,000 miles of bumpy, twisting public roads to win the 1955 Mille Miglia. This year, ‘722’ and Moss have appeared around the world for the 50th anniversary, mobbed by fans of every age.
