New award to cel­e­brate rally man Stokes

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The ral­ly­ing ca­reer and char­ac­ter of David Stokes will be re­mem­bered with a new end-of-sea­son award within the MSA Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship.

The award will cel­e­brate the life of the four-time BHRC cham­pion who died in Fe­bru­ary.

The Cas­trol-sup­ported an­nual award will be pre­sented to the in­di­vid­ual who dis­plays ‘spirit and en­thu­si­asm for the BHRC in the style of David Stokes’. The win­ner could be a driver, a co-driver, a me­chanic, an of­fi­cial or a mar­shal.

The award will be judged at the end of the sea­son by David’s co-driver Guy Weaver, David’s younger brother An­drew, Don­ald Smith from Cas­trol and BHRC man­ager Colin Hep­pen­stall.

Weaver said: “This award is de­signed to en­cap­su­late David’s phi­los­o­phy of in­clu­sion for ev­ery­one in his­toric ral­ly­ing. He would of­fer help and ad­vice to any­one, no mat­ter where they were in the field.”
