dsc 2005 Awards 19 – UK Surprise of the Year
The pace of the RJN Nissan 350Z, and the pace of
the David Ashburn / Fred Moss pairing in the Trackspeed Porsche
both gained a mention here.
So too did the welcome confirmation that the damaging
spat between SRO and MSV had been healed for 2006, with the most
popular circuits back on the calendar for 2006.
The winner here though has been mentioned previously
in these awards. It just missed out on overall honours in the Race
of the Year category but wins here because, quite frankly, there
were many who believed it wouldn’t happen.
It did, and with a full grid, drama aplenty and
battles up and down the order. A bigger and higher quality entry
is assured for 2006, but for now we’ll salute all concerned
both on track and behind the scenes. The successful re-launch of
24 hour racing in the UK was a very pleasant surprise.
