The Bob Porter Trophy is awarded by the Amilcar and Salmson Register to the register member responsible for the ‘most meritorious rebuild of an Amilcar’. On May 22nd, some 54 Amilcarists and Salmsonists from as far afield as Hong Kong, Berlin and France gathered for their annual spring event in Stow-on-the-Wold in the Cotswolds, to celebrate the presentation of this prestigious trophy. R.H. Porter (known as Bob Porter) was an Amilcar importer at one time and raced one of the owner's winning cars (chassis 11014) 84 years ago!
We are delighted to announce that, this year the trophy was presented to this special car for ‘the restoration of two Amilcar C6s to a standard rarely, if ever, attained' - an achievement of which we are extremely proud.
A combination of scrupulous determination to ensure that all our work on Amilcars adhere absolutely to what was on the cars originally, alongside Thornley Kelham’s skilled and meticulous attention to the finest detail have resulted in two C6 Amilcars which are as authentic as the day they left the factory, and are probably the best examples of their kind car in the world.
