Tuthill Porsche has won Specialist of the Year at the International Historic Motoring Awards in London.

Celebrating the cream of international historic motoring, the judges include five-time Le Mans winner, Derek Bell. Nominations were received from around the world: companies, cars and individuals from across Europe, the USA, Asia and Australia.

Tuthill Octane Historic Specialist Award

Oxfordshire’s specialist in classic 911 adventure, Tuthill Porsche, was acknowledged with this prestigious award, partly due to the team’s efforts in taking the biggest private rally team ever assembled to the 2013 East African Safari Classic. In addition to Safari, Tuthill also runs cars on various other rallies and racing championships around the world, as well as running its successful Below Zero ice driving season in Sweden each winter.

“It’s been a fantastic year for Tuthill Porsche. We finished second on the epic Peking to Paris Rally, won Category One of this year’s British Historic Rally Championship and now we’ve won this prestigious award,” said Richard Tuthill.

“I’m very proud to see our hard work recognised on a global scale. It’s an honour to know that true-blue enthusiasts including Nick Mason, Jochen Mass, Jay Leno and Derek Bell have acknowledged us with this prize. All of our team shares this award, and we look forward to earning more awards in the future!”

The Classic Porsche Blog is taking a little break, while I concentrate on building my Porsche-centric media business, Mighty Motor Media and work on Google optimisation and SEO copywriting projects for other clients.

November 24, 2013
