dsc 2005 Awards 10 – UK Rookie of the Year
Just three nominees here and only the mercurial
Phil Keen makes the cut from the headline GT2 class – his
performances aboard the Eclipse Mosler were a real eye opener, definitely
a star of the future.
In GT3 the joint champion was a revelation –
Dimitris Deverikos was all but unknown before the season, but was
quick and safe aboard the Tech 9 Porsche all year.
clear winner here though was a young man who didn’t take Route
1 – in a year when the entry was dominated by Porsche and
Ferrari he chose a different course and impressed everyone with
his pace and racecraft aboard the Team Aero Morgan.
United Kingdom Rookie of the Year 2005 is Oliver Bryant.
“Fast, mechanically sympathetic and mature
beyond his years” – Graham Goodwin
“If you are in any doubt look at his drive
at Croft in horrendous conditions on his own” – David
“Young, confident and talented. A star of
the future” – Mark Howson.
