Hagerty Insurance scoops Veteran Car Club Charman’s Trophy award
The Veteran Car Club of Great Britain has awarded Hagerty Classic Car Insurance its Chairman's Trophy award, for support of the club and the historic vehicle movement
Hagerty Insurance may lay claim as the leading insurance agency for classic vehicles, but the firm’s support for the classic car scene remains largely unrivalled. Offering a broad range of valuation and insurance services for classic cars and motorcycles, it broke the mould offering cover for automobilia. If you were a custodian of an exclusive or historical item linked with motor vehicles, mainstream cover had never been so easily available.
These feats, amid the insurance agency’s activities to promote the classic car scene, have now gone rewarded, with the Veteran Car Club (VCC) now awarding Hagerty and managing director Angus Forsyth its Chairman’s Trophy.
Speaking at the Veteran Car Club AGM held at its headquarters in Ashwell, Kent, Stephen Curry, secretary to the VCC, confirmed: ‘It is a special award and is only presented on rare occasions and has not been awarded since 1984.
'The Executive are very conscious of Hagerty’s contribution to the Club and are very appreciative. Without enthusiasts running companies such as Hagerty, veteran and Edwardian car owners would find it a lot harder to pursue their hobby, and the Executive wanted to recognise that.’
Angus Forsyth, Hagerty’s International managing director and recipient of the award said: ‘We are humbled to have been awarded this prestigious trophy by the Veteran Car Club. This trophy stands for so much and it is a real tribute to the whole Hagerty team, of which we are very proud. We continue to work hard to protect, preserve and promote the whole classic, Vintage and Veteran car movement and this award is a terrific acknowledgement of the past ten years of hard work.’

Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce 1973 The 2000 GTV was introduced in 1971 as the replacement for the 1750 range. The engine for the GTV had its displacement increased to 1962cc by changing the bore and stroke. The engine produces 150bhp at 5500 rpm with carburettors that were retained for European markets. The 105 was an extremely well specified car in its day with a 5-speed gearbox and discs all rou
A stunning and rare piece of Speedway history. The Staride was designed and built by Mike Erskine, who later went on to build Formula 3 (500cc) racing cars at his workshop in Southampton. The Staride featured the 5 stud JAP engine cradled in a hand built Erskine frame, and was a classic and minimalist design that all speedway bikes adhere to, even to this day. This lovely example has a name pla
The most collectable Triumph TR, the short-lived TR5 was a happy accident resulting from Triumph's failure to ready the tooling for the new TR6 body in time. Yet combining the pretty TR4A body with the lusty 150bhp 2. 5-litre fuel injected six cylinder engine for just one year created what for many is the ultimate TR. The combination of their low production numbers (just 1161 UK RHD made) and th
Its ultra-aggressive appearance may at first elicit a "get out of the way" response should you see this 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca edition on the road, but immediately thereafter, you'll almost certainly want to move in closer for a good look. It's an attention getter for sure and, considering there were only about 750 of its kind made in the first place, not only do you not
