Windsor 16th August: Sunday 8th September sees the introduction of the inaugural Lockton Club Trophy at Salon Privé Classic & Supercar with in excess of 500 supercars attending from 5 major UK Clubs. With Bentley Drivers Club and Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club also attending to celebrate Bentley's Centenary, it promises to be a spectacular club day at the Palace for members and enthusiasts alike.
With such an amazing selection of cars taking part, the organisers are rightly thrilled to announce that Lockton, as classic and performance car insurance specialists and the world's largest, privately-owned insurance broker, will become the new sponsor of the event. The Lockton Club Trophy, as it will be known, will be the ultimate Award of the day alongside the Club Secretaries' and Manufacturers' Awards and these will be presented by Lockton within Salon Privé on the South Lawn.
No other insurance broker knows car clubs like Lockton Performance does and indeed, they are the official insurance partner to the majority of clubs attending the event, making them the ideal partner for this exciting new project.
Rachel Gilliam, Partner and Head of Private Clients at Lockton comments: “We are delighted to once again be involved with Salon Privé and especially to be sponsoring an event celebrating so many of our car club partners.”
With its easily accessible and central location not to mention acres of lawns, prestigious Blenheim Palace offers the perfect location and opportunity to now establish the Lockton Club Trophy as the premier annual prestige car club event in the UK which ties in perfectly with the organiser's ambitious plans.
Salon Privé Concours Chairman, Andrew Bagley said “This will be the first year that we have hosted a dedicated club event and we've been thrilled with the response from everyone involved. If you include the Bentleys that will be there on the day, we'll have more than 1,500 super and luxury cars on the North Lawn which is quite extraordinary and this will pave the way for Sunday to become THE annual end-of-season car club event in the UK. Lockton Performance know how to look after their club partners and this will be a fantastic opportunity for them to continue to build on the excellent relationships they have with them and their members.”
