It was a great night supporting Autosport Club and our club champions who gathered club points over the season to make it to the podium. Thanks to those who volunteered to stand for the committee for 2017. We welcome Michael Veronese to the committee and we thank Graham Wilson will be president for the 11th year in a row.
We had guest speakers from the Hyundai NZ Young Driver Shootout at the Autosport AGM Prizegiving. Job Quantock beat 180 applicants and 4 fellow finalists to win the shootout. His prize package includes mentoring from Hayden Paddon and a drive of the Hyundai i20 AP4 rally car at two rounds of the 2017 NZ Rally Championship. Fellow Cantabrian participants who took part in the amazing event include Matt Summerfield, Ari Pettigrew, Chris McLean, Amy Hudson and Alan Steel.
We presented four new Memorial Trophies for the Sprint/Hillclimb Class Champions. We had guest speakers share some fond memories of our friends to whom we dedicate these new trophies to; Yo Sands, Andrew Grundy, Andrew Bulman, Andrew (Crowbar) Cowles.
