Chris crowned club champ after superb season.
REDCAR rally driver Chris Roe took the top trophy at Stockton and District Motor Club's annual presentation evening.
Roe collected the Club Champion trophy at the Claireville Hotel in Eaglescliffe - his reward for an outstanding year of rallying in the ANCC Championship alongside Bob McKenzie.
Judy Warriner was second and Leigh Mac-Donald third.
Roe may well be under pressure to retain his crown, however, as the club now has several active rally teams in competition including John and Mark Gaskin who will be running their Citroen Saxo this season, while Steve Perry and Joe Hutchinson have already begun their 2015 campaign and Peter Ellerby hopes to return to rallying with a historic Mini Cooper S by the summer.
Former rallycross champ 'Mad' Mark Watson was guest of honour at the awards night.
He also handed out awards for the three classes in the club's Powerline Surveying Ironman Kart Championship - Brian Naylor winning Class C, Karl Parkin Class A and Colin Peacock taking the Class B and overall championship trophy for 2014. On a less serious motorsport note, the club runs a Fantasy Formula One championship which was jointly won by Roe and Mark Asher.
The final award is known as the Chrome Nut or Fatigue Award and is given to mark the most calamitous accident or motorised mishap by a club member. Simon Marley-Warriner has that trophy on his mantelpiece now after a series of mechanical problems that rendered all but one of his vehicles undriveable.
