Hindhaugh – From The Fans Award
“A big thanks to all who nominated and voted in this award,”
begins John Hindhaugh.
accepted it on behalf of all of the hard-working team of people
who are, or have been, part of the ALMS RadioWeb, now the ALMS Radio
“I must say that it is a great honour for the Radio Team to
be among such names as Dr Panoz, Dr Ulrich, Doug Feehan et al who
have gone before.
“When the award was conceived - ironically by the Radio Team
in 1999 - we intended that it should be an opportunity to present
an award from our listeners to the 'Fan Favourite'.
“From the beginning the Radio Team has worked on the basis
that we ask questions on everyone's behalf, hopefully representing
fans from around the world - "Fans with Microphones" -
if you will.
“As fans ourselves this honour is especially touching knowing
that it is our audience, and more importantly our peers, who have
recognised our efforts over the years.
“On behalf of the team I would like to thank all teams, drivers,
PR staff and IMSA/ALMS officials (Dick Martin, Charlie Cooke and
their crews plus Marty Kaufman and Doug Robinson) who have allowed
us the unrivalled access that allows us to do what we do.
“I would also like to recognise the help of Wheeler TV and
its pictures without which we could not 'see' qualifying or provide
the coverage that we do.
“But most of all I would like to say thanks to the team, both
in front and behind the microphone. These guys have been the heart
and soul of what has been achieved since the first PLM broadcast
“The team over the years has included;
"Brilliant" Bob Dawson
Lee and Jerry Self
Jim and Anne Roller
Mark and Tracey Aykroyd
Graham Goodwin, Malcolm Cracknell and all at dailysportscar.com
all our special guests/drivers in the booth
Sara McCoy and all the americanlemans.com webmasters over the years
….and the man who started it all - Joe Weidensall
“If I have left anyone out I apologise - it's not malicious
just bad memory.”
