The special award winners from the sixth and final round of the 2018 FUCHS LUBRICANTS MSA British Historic Rally Championship, the Trackrod Historic Cup (28th/29th September), have been announced.
Chris Skill collected the award for the ‘Best Improvement on Seeding’, which is a set of axle brake pads from Mintex. In one of his best performances to date, Skill and co-driver Graham Wild finished second BHRC crew to secure championship victory in Category 2.
The ‘Spirit of the Rally’ product award from Fuchs Lubricants went to Matthew Robinson and co-driver Sam Collis who turned in a stunning performance to win their home event for the first time. They had to contend with major suspension dramas on Saturday and even helped rival Paul Barrett compete in the Yorkshire forests for the first time.
Finally, Paul Barrett won the ‘Hard Charger’ award of a 20-litre jerry can from Green Valley Industrial Supplies. Following a low-speed roll on Friday evening, he re-started on Saturday morning and was fastest on three of the five stages despite this being his first experience of rallying in the Yorkshire forests.
Finally, Adam Milner won the ‘Hard Charger’ award of a 20-litre jerry can from Green Valley Industrial Supplies. He finished an incredible second overall BHRC and first in Category 2 in his 1600cc Ford Escort Mk1.
