Winners of Lewes' 22nd Annual British Motorcar Show Announced

Winners of Saturday's 22nd Annual British Motorcar Show: 
 
Winners were selected by a popular vote of show attendees at the Lewes Ferry Terminal grounds on Saturday, May 6, 2017.  The Triumph TR6 was the featured marque at the 22nd show. This year’s event attracted 95 preregistered cars and 5 cars registered on the day of the show.

Nearly 700 spectators admired the 67 cars that arrived on the grounds and voted for their favorites in each category. The rain held off until after the Winners’ Circle parade.
