750 Motor Club Awards Night

Last evening the 750 Motor Club held their annual Awards Night in the beautiful market town of Stratford Upon Avon. The Mazda fraternity were out in force and it was so great to see drivers, their friends, family and supporters. The evening kicked off with pre-drinks at the bar, which provided an opportunity to catch-up on all the latest news heading in the 2018 season. A sumptuous three-course dinner was served prior to the awards presentation by Ian Sowman.

Six-place man, and winning an award for the ‘best presented car’ was Matthew Short, fifth was Ben Hancy, fourth Ian Tomlinson, third went to Paul Bateman, runner up Ali Bray and the winner Ben Short. The top two were also presented with an additional award each: Ali was awarded the coveted ‘John Miles Young Driver Award’, and Ben Short for the highest number of victories in a season – 15! Ben won the award back in 2015 too. Well done to everyone, very well-deserved!

Once Ian vacated the stage, the band kicked off and wasn’t long before the dance floor was filled – even with Alyn Robson! Who knew he could dance as well as he makes up racing stories!

Not long now until the start of the season. Get in your application forms in and who knows, could be you on stage receiving a massive egg cup!
