CRUTCHLOW WINS TOP TORRENS TROPHY
Double Motogp race winner Cal Crutchlow has been awarded the prestigious Torrens Trophy, the Royal Automobile Club’s award for the promotion of motorcycling in the United Kingdom. Awarded only nine times since its inauguration in 1978, Crutchlow joins an illustrious shortlist of former winners.
The award comes after an incredible second half of the 2016 Motogp season that saw him take two wins and a series of podium finishes while dicing with the top factory machines on the privateer LCR Honda. The 31-yearold was left gobsmacked by the award during a formal lunch to celebrate his achievements at the RAC’S Pall Mall headquarters on Tuesday.
“I feel very privileged that the Royal Automobile Club considers me worthy of it. It’s taken a long time, and a lot of hard work, and it’s an honour to be recognised by such well-respected industry figures.”
