It was Border Ecosse Car Club's annual awards night and the club's 40th anniversary celebrations with a good crowd in attendance including two founder members.
Even more encouraging was the fact that a 16 year old was the club champion after three class wins and one second place during the year's Autocross series and second place in the end of season Autotest - his first ever autotest at that.
|And a 40th birthday cake too!|
The club also recognised the success of youngster Garry Pearson who received a special award for winning the 2012 MSA British Junior Rally Championship title. And there is more good news for the Brtish Championship, at least three BECC crews are considering contesting the BRC Challenge series this year with a fourth still swithering.
The barley broth was thick enough to walk across, the roast 100% beef dinner was equine-free and the sweet course would have satisfied Victor Meldrew. And this being the racecourse, the prices were awfy reasonable, two G&Ts plus a ginger beer and lime for £8.60.
And did you know, the first ever honorary president of Border Ecosse Car Club in 1972 was one Roger Clark - yes, that one!
