New award to celebrate rally man Stokes
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.”
