It could be the story of the car being found as a wreck and restored to its former glory or it being owned from new by the same owner. Maybe it's an extremely rare car or one that holds significant sentimental value to a loved one.
Cars up to the year 2000 are considered – from pre-war to the noughties. The standard of the car is obviously important, but the passion of the owner and the journey the car has gone on is equally, if not more important.
“The Pride of Ownership display is a must-see for anyone visiting the show, the standard of cars is simply outstanding! As always there’s a great mix of marques and years being celebrated which truly means there is something for everyone – I can’t wait to see them all and hear the stories behind them.”

Classic cars made before 1 January 2000 are invited to enter into the Lancaster Insurance Pride of Ownership competition, where the visitors will vote for their favourite car – based on their history and the story the car shares with the owner. This is not a Concours competition. However, Concours winning cars are welcome to enter but should not expect to be judged in the same way. Modified cars will be considered alongside their original counterparts.
Clarion Events will not contribute to any transportation or accommodation costs for entrants.
A car can only be entered once in a three-year period. An owner can enter one car per year but it must be a different car each year.
Please download the form below and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with two pictures with at least one showing a full view of your car. These can be hard copy prints or electronic images. Hard copy images cannot be returned unless a self-addressed envelope is provided.
While the owners can engage and campaign with other entrants and visitors, any form of intimidation, cheating, derogatory remarks or bad mouthing is not tolerated and those involved will be disqualified and asked to leave.
Votes will be counted and verified by Clarion Events Ltd and the organiser's decision is final. The car with the most visitor votes wins with trophies for first, second and third place awarded on the final day of the show.
The owners and car crowned the overall winner will be invited to display their car at the next edition of the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show. They may also recieve an invitation to Race Retro in February and Classic Motor Show in November.
