FOOTMAN JAMES TO SPONSOR 'THE ICONS' CLASS AT LONDON CONCOURS
Collector and classic car insurance specialist, Footman James, will sponsor ‘The Icons’ class at London Concours (5-6 June 2019) in association with Azur.
Lining up on the Honourable Artillery Company lawns during the London Concours on 5-6 June 2019 will be a collection of automotive icons, each representing the stand-out car of their era. ‘The Icons’ class will be sponsored by leading automotive insurance specialist, Footman James, in association with Azur.
‘The Icons’ concours class is a carefully curated selection of cars that each represent innovation, design or performance for their era. Cars already announced within ‘The Icons’ category include The Land Rover Series I, original Mini, Jaguar E-Type and Lamborghini Countach.
A must-attend event in the global collector car calendar, the upcoming London Concours is organised by Thorough Events, the team behind the Concours of Elegance. It will be hosted again at the Honourable Artillery Company in the UK capital, bringing together the world’s most important manufacturers, collectors and specialists within the collector car industry.
The sponsorship announcement follows Footman James’ formal partnership with Azur, who provides specialist Private Client cover for Footman James. Insuring high net worth car collections, as well as offering protection for homes and high-end single car cover, the Footman James Private Client package is aimed at high net worth individuals (HNWIs) that don’t have ‘off-the-shelf’ insurance requirements. Azur is a bespoke insurance broker based in London and an official partner of the London Concours.
Discussing the London Concours announcement, David Bond, Managing Director at Footman James said, “The London Concours brings together the great minds, collectors and iconic cars of our industry. The sponsorship of ‘The Icons’ class further underlines our relationships with great partners, including Azur and London Concours, as well as our clients and commitment to celebrate the very best cars available today.”
