We're celebrating and inspiring young people who want to be part of the Classic Car Industry through our Bright Young Sparks initiative.

At Lancaster Insurance, we want to support the young people in our industry who are striving to be a part of the classic car world - whether that's working in the industry or simply enjoying classic vehicles as a hobby.

It's so important to continue to inspire future generations to get involved and keep this fantastic industry alive for years to come, which is why from now until March 2023, we'll be celebrating and sharing the stories of six 'Bright Young Sparks' - as nominated by you!

The six finalists will also be in with a chance of winning a 'Classic Car Industry Taster’ trip, including work experience with classic car mechanics, specialists and celebrities!

Who is a 'Bright Young Spark'?

Are you, or do you know someone age 16-25 who...

  • Is aspiring to work in classic car maintenance or restoration
  • Spends their weekends tinkering with cars in the garage
  • Is actively involved in a classic car club
  • Creates online or social content all about classic cars
  • Reads all the classic car magazines
  • Or, simply loves classic cars!

If this sounds like you - or, if you know someone who ticks one or all of the above criteria, we want to hear from you!

What will they win?

From August through to February 2023, we'll be selecting 6 finalists, who will each win:

  • £250 to go towards tools (or other supplies related to the classic car industry if applicable)
  • Two tickets to the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show in March 2023
  • An exclusive feature in the Lancaster Insurance newsletter and on our website and social channels, all about them and their love of classic cars

At the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show in March 2023, we'll be asking you to select a final winner out of our six finalists, who will win a 'Classic Car Industry Taster’ trip in partnership with the Federation Skills Trust, including:

  • A day learning about a course in classic vehicle mechanics at a renowned classic motor school - such as Heritage Skills Academy Bicester
