The new Scot­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship Star Driver Award will be named in hon­our of John Horton.

Horton was an in­ter­na­tional co-driver and went on to help or­gan­ise events, cham­pi­onships and worked as press of­fi­cer on Rally GB.

John Horton SRC Star Driver Award man­ager Dave Rob­son said: “John put so much work into the sport and was so very highly re­spected by us all. It’s an hon­our to be able to name the award af­ter him and we would like to thank the Horton fam­ily for al­low­ing us to do so.”

Fol­low­ing each round, an as­sem­bled panel of SRC of­fi­cials, me­dia and in­de­pen­dent ob­servers will se­lect an SRCreg­is­tered driver to go for­ward to an end-of-year shootout.

The winner of the shootout will re­ceive an en­try to a Euro­pean event plus a con­tri­bu­tion to event costs.
