  • In conversation with.....Andrew Misseldine from Lancaster Insurance | Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show
    rumbling sound of a V8 engine and the smell of leather when you stick your head through the window of a 60 s British classic such as a Rover P5 The smell of fuel in the air when all the cars left the NEC last year was intoxicating I m excited to experience it all again at this year s show Q As Car Club Relationship Manager you work with the car clubs on a daily basis What is the biggest challenge the clubs are facing at present I think the toughest challenge some are seeing is how to encourage new members on to the scene Clubs are losing members through natural attrition and whilst some of the clubs whose vehicles are still manufactured thrive it is more difficult for those clubs whose vehicles aren t in production to attract younger enthusiasts Michael Allen of the Rover P6 Club is one of the people tackling these challenges and he also won the Young Timers award at last year s Classic Sports Car Club awards After joining the club s committee in 2012 he took on regalia advertising and editorial work His flair for digital graphics allowed him to successfully rebrand the club including their magazine website and advertising bringing them up to date and increasing membership levels to those never previously seen and he s still only 27 Q How do you think clubs are coping in the modern age with more online forums and social media channels Is the club meet a dying trend Clubs are realising that there is a need to incorporate social media as a way of communication It connects members from across the globe who share a common passion and makes club activities more accessible Some clubs have struggled to embrace this change but most are now moving with the times and recognise there is a demand and are meeting their member s wants and needs Will social media replace the club meet I don t think it will Social media is an amazing platform for people to arrange meetings and share stories and pictures but I can t see it being the only way members communicate The whole point of owning a classic car and being a club member is meeting up and showing off your car to like minded enthusiasts and in my opinion that will never change Q Some car clubs are flourishing while others seem to struggle What can clubs do to make themselves stand out from others when trying to attract new members We re passionate about helping clubs reach their full potential and I believe the best way to attract new members is to understand that every owner s needs are different Whilst some of the older owners may enjoy a monthly Noggin and Natter younger members may not share this interest but it s the mix of members who will shape the clubs going forward Having a balance of physical meets events and online activity means you will
