Microcars at the NEC - 2009

The NMCR regularly organises a display of Microcars at the Classic Motor Show,
held in November each year at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.

The 2009 show ran from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 November - and WE WON FIRST PRIZE! for "Most Interesting Selection of Vehicles",
awarded by the show's sponsors, Classic & Sports Car Magazine.

Presenting the award, Classic & Sports Car Club Awards compère Simon Taylor said:

“We kick off the awards judged at the show with easily the most difficult category to decide, the Most Interesting Selection of Cars.  There was a spectacular variety of machinery to choose from around the halls, such as Bexhill 100 Motoring Club’s group, which featured a replica of the Serpollet ‘Easter Egg’ steamer – built for the centenary of the town’s famous race – while the Alvis Owner Club presented its range of motors either side of a Scorpion tank. But both were shaded by a remarkable group of rarities that included a Bond Minicar MkA, a Scootacar and a Zündapp Janus – and when was the last time that you saw all of those together? Most Interesting Selection of Cars goes to that fantastic group from the National MicroCar Rally.”
