UCP 2011 COTY Award

What about the UCP awards?

I do not have much time to explain my idea before leaving, but I would be a nice way of ending the year and trying to reactivate the forums. I'd be willing to organise them.

I would limit it to the COTY, nominations by a panel of senior members, then everyone can vote. I'd also advertise them in the main page.

What do you think?

Near the middle of the middle of middle England.
Sounds like a good idea, every car website worth its salt has a COTY award at the end of the year. How would it work? New cars, race cars, cars featured by UCP in the past year or whatever the nominators feel has made an impact in the last 12 months?

I was just thinking about this. I'd say anyone can nominate; I don't like the idea of allowing only some people to. Road cars, must have been new in 2011.

Other than that, pretty simple.

Last time it was done, maybe 2 years ago it got pretty messy with the polling. But sure, I wouldn't mind it being done again.

The one issue. People come out of the woodwork to propose CotYs. Beyond the apparent issue of elitism in allowing only some to nominate cars, how do you determine who composes the nomination committee?

I wanted to limit nominations precisely for the problem NSX mentions.

I'd also limit to production road cars introduced in 2011.

How does one define production? An age old problem. Generally accepted to be produced in significant qualities or otherwise made by a reputable manufacturer, allowing say, a Zonda to still qualify?

Well, then anything that can be registered for the road? That would define it clearly.

And an engine. And more than two wheels.

Yeah, that sounds right. Road legal and introduced in 2011. Thinking North Americanly, would this exclude 2011 MY years cars and only allow 2012s?

Anything that has been introduced from the 1st of January to the last day of nominations, I'd say. And I'd forget about the whole MY malarkey. It just confuses things.

Eh, cheat. Use the cars in EVO's PCOY and CAR's PCOY nominees and maybe take some nominations for sedans and SUVs. I somehow doubt the MPV faithful are going to feel slighted and rise up.

evo is damn good. Read two when over in Scotland. Pretty acceptable choice this year, though it was very obvious.

I want a sub.
