RECORD-BREAKING attendance promises to make the 2023 Octane magazine Historic Motoring Awards one of the year’s biggest international celebrations of classic motoring.

Staged at London’s Dorchester Hotel on Wednesday November 15th, Octane’s Historic Motoring Awards highlight the gloom-bucking joy of beauty, performance and driving pleasure like no other event in the automotive calendar.

A record number of companies, organisations and star players whose talent and energy inspire historic motoring fans the world over are lined up to be honoured in 22 categories.

Award categories range from photography, events, professional builders, restorers and hobbyists to collections, manufacturers, suppliers and, of course, the cars themselves that continue to make automotive history.

As the premier publication serving the classic and performance motoring market, Octane is at the heart of an industry that consistently shines, even in difficult times, making this Wednesday’s awards the most hotly contested yet.

The event also features an auction, led by celebrity auctioneer Charles Hanson, in support of injured military service members’ charity Mission Motorsport.

Octane Editor-in-chief James Elliott said: “The scale of this year’s event, along with its international attendance, is testament to the enduring love for beautiful and exciting automotive engineering even in the most challenging times.

“It promises to be a spectacular night, with more guests and award entries than ever before, all driven by the biggest public vote since the awards began.

“We are delighted to play our part in inspiring this exciting market every day and to give recognition to the people whose energy and talent make it such a consistent bright spot in the automotive world.”

Octane is celebrating its 20th year as the publishing world’s number one title for classic and performance car fans. Its worldwide following is reflected in this week’s event with 30% of guests from overseas.
