ANOTHER season of East Lancashire motorsport success was celebrated at the annual SD34 presentation night.
This year’s awards were presented by Captain Tony Harris. Having served in Northern Ireland and three times in Iraq, Captain Harris was seriously injured in May 2009 by an IED in Afghanistan.
He is one of the founding members of Race2Recovery and contested this year’s Dakar Rally.
He was joined by Justin Birchall, from Clitheroe, who was a member of the Race2Recovery management team in this year’s Dakar, having competed in the 2013 event.
The evening was hosted by Pendle and District Motor Club’s Rod Brereton and Alan Shaw at Nelson Cricket Club.
In addition to the trophies given out for the various motorsport disciplines in SD34, the culmination of the evening was the presentation of the Brian Molyneux Award.
This award is for someone who, in the opinion of the judges, has made an outstanding contribution to motorsport.
The 2014 award was given posthumously to Morecambe Car Club member Cath Simpson.
