Second Prestigious Award to Classic Motor Cars within a month!
Bridgnorth’s Classic Motor Cars travelled to the Goodwood Festival of Speed over the weekend of 12-15th July and added a sparkling Class Win at the Cartier Style et Luxe to their Octane “Company of the last 15 years” commendation.
The unique and superbly restored Pinninfarina styled 1954 Jaguar XK 120 was shown as part of the traditional competition to decide the most elegant of machinery, staged on the Cartier Lawn within the shadow of Goodwood House, for the 22nd time this year.
Fighting off stiff competition in the special bodied Jaguar Class the Pininfarina was adjudged a clear and popular winner.
Speaking on behalf of CMC, Chairman Peter Neumark said: “To spend the weekend at Goodwood Festival once again and to be awarded Best in Class was a great honour. Coupled with this we were able to re-introduce Peter Sutcliffe, who is now aged 81 to the Lindner Nocker E Type coupe, which he took up the hill having previously driven it at Goodwood in 1964!”
Peter added: “At that time he had his own Lightweight E-type. He was quicker in practice and was invited by Peter Lindner for his opinion on his Lindner. He gave it in forthright style, ‘It handled dreadfully’. Although, I am pleased to say that he now thinks it drivers superbly!”
“With July not yet half over and two fantastic achievements for CMC. And With the 25th Anniversary celebrations coming up on 18th August, 2018 is shaping up as a true Watershed year for Classic Motor Cars.”
