The finalists in the 2017 National Car Club Awards, in association with Tourism Ireland, have been revealed by Classic Car Weekly and the TR Register is pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted for:

Most Outstanding Website

Club of the Year

Furthermore, the TR Register's Press Officer and Editor of TR Action, Wayne Scott has been shortlisted by the organisers for Club Ambassador of the Year.

The organisers say that this year they have seen the most nominations to date. Supported by Classic Car Weekly, and endorsed by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs, the overall Award winners will be announced at the awards dinner on Saturday 1st April 2017 at Birmingham's NEC.

The news comes after the TR Register scooped the prize for "Most Outstanding Magazine of the Year" at the inaugral event last year.

Lee Masters, Director of The National Car Club Awards, said: "We had 209 nominations, which is 25 more than the inaugural year and it's fantastic to see the clubs embrace these awards. Once again, the standard of entries was extremely high with a fantastic mix of clubs of all sizes.

"Some of the categories had over 30 entries and reducing these down to a shortlist was extremely difficult, making that place on the shortlist even more valuable and an incredible achievement."

A total of 16 awards will be presented at the glittering ceremony, hosted by Mike Brewer alongside the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show. The shortlist covers eight of the award categories with the finalists for the Lifetime Achievement award still to be decided. The other six awards will be decided by the judges on Saturday and presented their prize at the awards dinner.

It's be good to understand the nominations for the other Triumph clubs eg I assume Club Triumphs is for their splendid RBRR but I'm not aware what TSSC or TR Drivers have done
