Highly Commended – Steve Brown

Steve’s consistency in the Club100 Elite championship brought him the title a round early at Ellough. rarely off the podium and never outside the top 10 he gave us a mater-class in A&D karting this year, and then helpfully posts all of his races on his YouTube channel, literally showing us how its done. Plus that drive in the Round 11 final at Buckmore from 9th to 1st was something else!

Editor’s Special Mention – Jack Goldsmith

The introduction of the A&D Driver of the Year Award this year has been great. Arrive and Driver Karting is a massive part of British Karting and after our A&D Column launched this year I started to realise just how big it actually was. The Driver of the Month prize got a great response and off the back of that we wanted to take it one step further and do an award for the driver of the year. Being a fairly late decision I haven’t been able to line up all the prizes I wanted to, but that will certainly change for next year!

If this award was judged by votes then Jack Goldsmith would have been the clear winner. He had a lot of support to his page attaining a total of 237 likes to this page. He won the Brentwood Karting Club Championship this year and had success with the ‘Brentwood Banta’ team elsewhere.
