‘All of the winners went the extra mile’
Mike Brewer is spot on when he says that clubs are the driving force behind our hobby, and I’m delighted that so many of their success stories have been celebrated at this year’s awards. Picking out the winners from more than 200 entries was no easy task, but the one thing that connects all of this year’s winners is an element of going the extra mile. Events like the Jensen Owners’ Club’s Turin run, hard working club devotees like Rosie Hamilton and big achievements like the Sporting Bears’ fundraising all make me hugely proud to be involved in a scene that’s positively thriving right now. These awards are proof that any tales you might hear about clubs being in decline are cobblers. What I’d love to see next year are more clubs picking up prizes that reflect innovation and hard work.
