Every month the committee awards the ‘Competitor of the Month’ award to someone who has achieved something great in their motor sport. It doesn’t have to be first place, sometimes overcoming adversity (or is that reliability?) is enough. We’ll send you a voucher for £20 too. Tell us what you’ve been up to each month by email.

- August 2016 Competitor Of The Month – Dale Huxford
Dale was up to his usual tricks at the Goodwood Eagle sprint, embarrassing much more powerful cars in his class with his Spitfire. Another class win was recorded.
- July 2016 Competitor Of The Month – Martin Pickles
Following the engine rebuild (see other posts from Martin), Martin ran the engine in with a class win at the Curborough sprint in July with his Jedi 988. Unfortunately Martin wasn’t so lucky last weekend, when the front hub shaft snapped in a 4th gear corner (hence the lift back with the JCB) – he didn’t have grey hair before that run either !. What upset him most was that apart from trashing the upright and obviously the shaft, a brand new slick that had been fitted just five minutes before also got wrecked – the fastest £200 he’d ever spent apparently. That’s motorsport.
- June 2016 – Competitor of the Month – Graeme Bell & Russ Radford
Following a couple of early season DNFs with the new car, Graeme Bell & Russ Radford seem to have the Proton sorted now and this was demonstrated with 3rd o/all at the Abingdon Motorsport CAR-nival Stages.
- May 2016 – Competitor Of The Month – Angelica Fuentes
After the disappointment of a DNF on the Chihuahua Express rally, Angelica got the opportunity to extend her stay in Mexico, navigating Benito Guerra (2012 PWRC Champion) to 2nd o/all on the RAC RALLY 1000 Guadalajara rally in their Evo X. The event was the 2nd round of the Mexican championship.

- January 2016 Competitor Of The Month – Ian Hucklebridge

on the Brands Hatch Winter Stages. As always, the event drew a competitive entry and the morning stages were very challenging due to the slippery conditions.
