WhatCar? Car of the Year Awards 1998


Sponsored again in this year by British Steel plc, I designed and produced nineteen of these trophies for the WhatCar magazine, Car of the Year Awards 1998.

The trophies are made of hollow ferrous castings mounted with stainless steel etched plaques and laser cut 'question mark'.

Also produced the trophies in 1999. Although similar in appearance, these were GRP mouldings.
