BEST NEW CASTING 2001/
BEST ADVERTISING/PROMOTIONAL LIVERY 2001

203 of you took part in this year's Vote, which as you are aware, was split into two categories, one being for the Best New Casting of 2001, the second being the Best Advertising/Promotional Livery of 2001. Both covered the same period, i.e. 1st December 2000 - 30th November 2001. Another difference from previous year's voting was that this Vote had the extra incentive of "prizes" - Citybus kindly offering a model of their forthcoming T1 Dennis Condor in Driver Training livery to the winner of the Best New Casting category, and CMNL kindly offering to provide a pre-production sample of Creative Master Northcord's recently released SBS Transit liveried Volvo Olympian to the winner of the Best Advertising/Promotional Livery. I am very grateful to both for providing these prizes - Thank you.

Your first choice for each category was awarded 3 points, your second choice 2 points and your 3rd choice 1 point. At the end of voting, all the points for each model/livery were totalled, and the full results are shown below.

BEST NEW CASTING 2001

This category had a runaway leader from the very beginning and over 70 of you voted the Buses Model Co. Leyland Olympian as your first choice for Best New Casting. Second and third placings were somewhat closer, with the Corgi MAN eventually taking second place. Surprisingly, only two people's votes matched that of the overall result, and these two names went into the so-called hat for the winner to be decided. Congratulations to Eric of Manchester, UK, who will receive the Citybus T1 Training Liveried Dennis Condor. Well done to Calvin Cheng, who was the other name in the "hat".

BEST ADVERTISING/PROMOTIONAL LIVERY 2001

This category was totally different from the Best New Casting in that the top three models were separated by only 7 points, with the leader changing places throughout the voting. Believe it or not, only one person's vote matched that of the overall result!  Congratulations to John of Vancouver, Canada, who will be receiving CMNL's pre-production SBS Transit liveried Volvo Olympian.
