|Andrew and David Bagley – the brothers who founded Salon Privé – won the Personal Achievement award at the recent Octane Historic Motoring Awards. Now in its 11th year, the black-tie ceremony gathered the great and the good from the classic car world at the Rosewood Hotel in central London. Andrew is the husband of Sarah Bagley, shareholder in Gregory Properties and daughter of Barry Gregory.
The esteemed judging panel for the Historic Motoring Awards included legendary racing driver Derek Bell, collectors Bruce Meyer and Peter Neumark, Jay Leno, and Peter Auto founder Patrick Peter. They all recognised and paid tribute to the way in which the Bagleys had created one of the world’s greatest celebrations of motoring history – an event that provides an experience that is second to none in its blend of great cars and first-class hospitality.
After receiving the Personal Achievement award, Andrew Bagley commented: ‘This is very much an award for our wonderful team and also for those many people, clients and sponsors who’ve generously supported us from the early years. You know who you are and thank you.’
David Bagley added: ‘Salon Privé 2021 was our most ambitious event yet. From the demonstration runs to The Red Collection, it was a reflection of our passion to keep innovating and looking to the future, and we’re delighted that it was so well received.’
Enthusiasts won’t have to wait until September 2022 for the next instalment, thanks to the announcement of a brand-new event – Salon Privé London, which will be coming to London in April 2022.
