We are also awarding the John Bateman Club Racer of the Year in honour of the late Fiesta Championship racer who sadly passed away in 2018, the Kart Racer of the Year which will be extended to include more nominees in deference to our extended presence in the sport over the last two years in honour of ‘Mr Karting’ himself Martin Hines, we continue to award our prize for the Team of the Year across various disciplines of British motorsport now supported by Clapham North MOT, and we honour the late great Zach Anderton by awarding the Grassroots Racer of the Year with an increased recognition for their efforts in motorsport.
