A good four months after opening, we are delighted to have won the FIA Founding Members’ Club Heritage Cup of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). The FIA Heritage Cup is regarded an accolade within the classic car scene. The award was presented on 8 December at the FIA’s Grand Gala in Baku, Azerbaijan, where Max Verstappen received his Formula 1 World Championship trophy. With this award, the FIA recognises the efforts of dedicated organisations, events and individuals to promote and preserve automotive history. We were nominated for the award by the Automobile Club of Germany (AvD). Take a look at the AvD application video below:
