DESIGNER’S TROPHY

 

Presented to the Club in May 1970 by Austin (Tony) C Burdon, A. Harper, Sons & Bean’s Chief Designer during early 1920s.  Designer of the Fourteen and Twelve.  The Fourteen was the first car designed wholly by Bean.

The trophy is a plate of solid silver and is engraved with a picture of the Bean 14,

YP 7569 at the time was owned by John Sears, then briefly by the Club’s founders Rex & Joan Tapley, who then sold it back to John.  The car is now with the Lovelocks.

It was decided that the Trophy be awarded to the Bean which attended the most Club events and a list of eligible events was created for this purpose. In more recent years, the Committee decided whose car was “the most seen Bean”.
