William Medcalf Vintage Bentley is thrilled to be shortlisted for the International Historic Motoring Awards Specialist of the Year. The award is one of thirteen prestigious awards presented in conjunction with EFG and Octane magazine, and has previously been won by H K Engineering and by Francis Tuthill.
William, who is a life-long fan of vintage Bentleys, and has raced, restored and prepared them his whole life. The company focuses on the restoration and has a fantastic record for preparing rally winning cars – with William winning back to back Flying Scotsman rallies with his clients also collecting silverware all over the world.
William Medcalf Vintage Bentley also worked with its sister company The Medcalf Collection to reassemble and preserve a completely original 1928 Bentley 4.5 litre which was in parts stored in various rooms of a London house. The car, with rare Victor Broom coachwork, was featured in magazines and newspapers all over the world.
It was also heavily involved in the preparation of 14 cars for the Benjafield 24; the first and only 24hr endurance race for pre-war cars since the 1939 Le Mans 24hrs.
Benjafield’s Racing Club has also been shortlisted for an award; the Club of the Year award previously won by the Vintage Sports Car Club and the Aston Martin Owners’ Club. Formed in the honour and spirit of Bentley Boy Dudley Benjafield, the club promotes amateur racing across marques.
William Medcalf Vintage Bentley would like to thank everyone who nominated the company for inclusion in the awards, and is looking forward to the presentation on Thursday 19th November in London.
