SPECIALIST classic vehicle insurance broker Footman James has set out to find the UK's Classic Capital, a location or venue that can lay claim to being the epicentre of activity for the nation's classic car and bike community.

Whether you feel the crown should be awarded to an established automotive hub like Bicester Heritage, a long-standing local grassroots meet that has attracted enthusiasts for generations, or a village that has a history with classic vehicles, Footman James is asking for help in identifying the most worthy venues and locations.

From thriving local bike nights down at a pub to marque-specific meetups at South Mimms Services, the campaign is expected to highlight many hidden gems that serve as the backbone of the classic community.

Footman James said the overall winner may not be the largest or most opulent location in the country - simply a deserving place that works hard to bring enthusiasts together to share and indulge in their passion for classics.

Following its launch at the Coffee and Chrome Collective's Chateau Impney meet near Droitwich early in August, the UK's Classic Capital is now open for public entry via the Footman James website.

Submission is free and open to all classic, retro, and vintage enthusiasts from across the UK.

Entry closes on Sunday,Septembe 10r, after which Footman James will share the shortlist of venues before inviting the public to take part in a final voting process to find the overall winner.

Charlotte Moseley, head of marketing at Footman James, said, "We are very excited to be launching our search for the UK's Classic Capital this week. We know how important the places that hold space for our classic community are and we want to recognise them.

"If you have somewhere special that you love to take your classic, or somewhere in mind that screams passion for classics, then please let us know so we can celebrate them"
