Winners of Saturday’s 29th Annual British Motorcar Show, co-sponsored by the Lewes Chamber of Commerce and the British Car Club of Delaware (BCCD), were announced earlier than anticipated when the rain that had been predicted later in the afternoon arrived before Noon. 114 registered cars were expected and more than 80 were on the grounds of the Lewes Ferry terminal when the show opened to spectators around 10 a.m. Before the rain arrived, 250 paid spectators and the show judges were enjoying the experience of viewing the cars and talking to the car owners. 

This year’s judges were Andrew Williams, Lewes Mayor; Ted Becker, Lewes Chamber Board Vice President; Charlie Sokaitis, WRDE News Anchor and Charlie O’Donnell, BCCD member. All were present for the awards ceremony. Dana Mason, also a BCCD member, coordinated the judging and announced the winners at the Awards Ceremony that took place at the ferry terminal grounds. The unique awards  were presented to the winners by British Car Show founder Mike Tyler and Bill Tattersall, Car Show Coordinator, who fabricated the 34 awards. The Best in Show award was dedicated this year in memory of Jeffrey Broderick, a longtime BCCD member who passed away in December 2023. His 1934 Rolls Royce Phantom II was a popular Best in Show winner at the Lewes show many times before he asked that it be “retired” from being judged.  

The show annually culminates with the popular Winners’ Circle Parade from the ferry terminal to downtown Lewes. Unfortunately, this year’s had to be canceled due to the continuation of the British-like weather conditions.

Also a great turnout at the Friday nite Meet & Greet at the Wheelhouse Restaurant! Sampling of photos from the weekend below thanks to Terry Young & David Haines. More photos can be found on the BCCD FaceBook site.
