TVRCC Awards announced
(Posted on 20/03/2016)
 
The Trevor Wilkinson Trophy was inaugurated and hand made by Trevor himself in 1997 to mark the 50th anniversary of the establishment of Trevcar Motors and is awarded annually to the Club member who, in the opinion of the judges, has completed the most comprehensive restoration of a TVR in the previous 12 months.


There have been some very prestigious winners of this trophy including the Le Mans Grantura, then owned by Ian Massey-Crosse, and Andy Hutcheson's first production 350i. It was last awarded two years ago to Howard Bryan for his stunning restoration of Peter Wheeler’s unique White Elephant. Although there was an extremely strong field this year, the fact that Bran, ably assisted by his son Thomas, had produced such a stunning car when starting from such a low level tipped the balance in his favour. It was felt by all judges that "Trevor would have approved". You will be able to see Brian's Taimar on the club stand at this year's NEC Classic Motor Show, 11-13 Nov.


Richard Walton, the relatively new but highly successful Regional Organiser for Peak Forest region won the Folkard Cup for RO of the Year. The Folkard Cup was inaugurated to remember Roger Folkard, the longstanding and extremely popular West Midlands RO who sadly passed away in 2003. Appropriately, the trophy was presented by Roger's daughter and full time TVRCC Office Manager, Alison Brown.


Steve Glynn took the Club's oldest award, the Scott Moncrieff trophy, awarded to the member who has made the greatest contribution to TVR Motorsport for winning both Class 2 and the overall Britcar title 2015 in his TVR Sagaris posting 3 outright wins from the final 4 races. The Scott Moncrieff was presented to the club by the wife of its first President, Bunty Scott-Moncrieff, and was first awarded in 1966 when the TVRCC was only 1 year old. It was presented to Steve by TVRCC Competition Secretary Graham Walden. back
