Winners of Green Belt Motor Club’s 15 motorsport championships were presented with their trophies by club president Gerry Thurlow at its annual dinner on Saturday.

Enfield saloon car racing driver Malcolm Wise, who is Green Belt’s chairman, won the Jackson Trophy for the club’s best motor racing competitor.

He competed in his 500 horsepower turbocharged Ford Escort Cosworth in the Brands Hatch-based Quaife Modified Saloon Car Championship last year.

Although Wise only finished in half of the races, he was very much a front runner in nearly all of those outings, recording five second-place finishes, two thirds and a fourth.

These results were also good enough to earn him second place in the Trent Park Trophy which is the club’s toughest championship. It goes to the competitors who put up the best set of performances in 15 events, which can be in any type of motorsport.

Green Belt’s competitions secretary Chris Deal, from Edmonton, walked away with four trophies from the awards.

He gained first and second-place finishes in the club’s championships for co-drivers on multi venue and single venue stages rallies respectively.

Deal also collected the award for second place in the Clubman’s Trophy, which goes to the club’s best competitor in various types of motorsports, while his fourth award was for being joint winner of the club’s treasure hunt championship – the Warner Celnik Memorial Trophy.

Wise also made a short speech, proposing the toast of the club and reviewing Green Belt’s 2017 activities.

He said he was looking forward to the club running another full programme of motor sporting events during this year and concluded: “GBMC is a good club dedicated to the promotion of motor sport and we look forward to another successful year.”
