Brecon Motor Club members celebrated their British Historic Championship successes at the annual awards dinner at Steve Perez's Casa Hotel in Chesterfield last night. Pictured below from left to right are Bob Gibbons, Category one champion driver, Jason Pritchard overall championship winner, Dale Gibbons, Category One champion co-driver and Malcolm Rich second overall in the F2 class. There are no firm plans announced by any of them for next year but Jason is likely to look for a third championship win, Bob and Dale are moth balling the Cortina and tackling some tarmac events in their recently acquired Escort and Malcolm intends to do the same as they feel the forest events are getting to be too hard on the cars. Whatever they do, good luck from Brecon Motor Club!

A big well done to Will Arrowsmith on a great third place overall on Carmarthen Motor Club's Autumn Rally with Paul Tod. Will's sporadic outings usually bear fruit and it was no different on this occasion. No doubt there will be an entry in for the Powys Lanes now!

Brecon Motor Club member Jason Pritchard has achieved the double and taken a second straight British Historic Rally Championship title. Accompanied by Phil Clarke, the pair looked a poor bet after a series of mid season off road excursions and mechanical maladies. The Manx Rally put them back on track and they just needed to finish the Trackrod Rally, held in the Yorkshire forests, to win the championship. On the day a measured approach was taken where everything that was happening around them was ignored and they focused on getting to the finish line in no particular position. It evidently worked and one would guess that a hat trick might be in scope for 2017.
