A brief History

Our second competition in 2017 with 180 entries from 39 entrants, held again in the Jackie Stewart Pavilion at the circuit. The competition was judged by world respected motor racing historian Doug Nye and Mick Walsh and Lord March.

The competition for 2018 attracted 59 entrants providing 366 entries. This time the competition exhibition was held at the Goodwood Hotel.  Judges again were Doug Nye, Mick Walsh, The Duke of Richmond & Gordon. With sponsorship by London Camera Exchange and Border Digital Ltd with Canon cameras in attendance.

For 2019 and the 4th competition we  received 397 entries from 61 entrants.  The exhibition for 2019 was at Boxgrove Village Hall. Judges for this year were Le Mans driver Nick Minassian, Jeff Bloxham respected motor sport photographer, Alan Brewer from the GRRC and The Duke of Richmond & Gordon.

Clothing and stickers

We have a limited number of car stickers and lapel badges available - both have the IGPG logo on them similar to the logo at the top of the page.

Car Stickers - £1

Lapel Badges - £2.50

We have arranged with Lavant Workwear in Midhurst to produce clothing with
IGPG logo on. If you go to their website you can see all the items of clothing you can have the logo added to. Fleeces, sweatshirts, polo shirts, caps a very wide range indeed.

A further £6 (plus VAT) has to be added to the price quoted on the website to have the logo embroidered onto the chosen garment. 

Lavant Workwear will also undertake personalisation as well, with the differing requirements we would advise you speak to Lavant Workwear direct. They are very helpful!
