TV's Fuzz Townshend seeks Britain's biggest petrol head

The hunt is on to find Britain’s biggest motor maniac, a car enthusiast worthy of the title Autosessive of the Year 2016. The competition is being run by the online car parts and accessory retailer, who’s teamed up with classic car guru and motoring journalist Fuzz Townshend.

“We’re looking for the enthusiast who’s gone to the absolute extremes, whose passion has become an obsession,” said Fuzz, presenter of Channel Four and National Geographic channel’s Car SOS.    

“Whether they collect, modify, drift or track, detail, show, tour or restore their fantasy vehicle, we want to hear from them. It’s a great opportunity, not only to win some fantastic prizes worth over £1000, but also to share their passion with like-minded Autosessives.”

Along with earning the title Autosessive of the Year 2016, the winner will also receive £500 worth of parts and accessories to utilise on their pet project, plus an Autosessive hamper to pamper their beloved automobile. There’ll also be a host of prizes and goodies for the runners up.

To be in with a chance of winning, entrants simply upload a photo or short video to the awards page on the website, along with a brief explanation as to why they should claim the title Autosessive of the Year.

Entries will be accepted up until Wednesday 31st August, after which the top contenders will be determined by a public vote. A panel led by Fuzz Townshend and the Autosessive team will then decide on the winner and runners up, who will be announced in early October. 

Previous entrants include Jonty Wydell, who turned his garage into a living room so that he could purr over his dream Ferrari while his wife watched TV. And let’s not forget Chris Redford, the Volkswagen obsessive who’s covered from head to toe in VW tattoos.

As Fuzz likes to put it: “If you dream about your Datsun, tinker with your Toyota, fondle your Ford or adore your Audi, you could be our winner.”
