The memory of David Stokes will live on with an end-of-season award to be presented to Mintex MSA British Historic Rally Championship competitors.

The Castrol-backed award will celebrate the life of the four-time BHRC champion who sadly lost his life to cancer in February, and be presented to the individual who displays ‘spirit and enthusiasm for the BHRC in the style of David Stokes’.

Potential winners could be anyone involved within BHRC, for example it could be a driver, co-driver, official or a marshal that will receive the trophy along with a range of Castrol products.

Judges of the award indclude Stokes’ co-driver Guy Weaver, David’s younger brother Andrew, Donald Smith from Castrol and BHRC manager Colin Heppenstall.

“This award is designed to encapsulate David’s philosophy of inclusion for everyone in historic rallying.” said Weaver.

“He would offer help and advice to anyone, no matter where they were in the field and he was always keen to encourage newcomers. I hope the winner is proud to receive this new award and to follow in the wheeltracks of the legend that was David Stokes.”
