10 days on, now that the hangovers have gone, we look back at The 2016 Super One Series Awards night. The event was held on the 14th January at the Doubletree by Hilton in Coventry near Birminghams NEC. There were said to be just under 300 people who attended! Earlier that day, the Super One awards presentation was held at Autosport International 2017.
As ever the night was hosted by Series Commentator, Henry Beaudette! Shortly after Henry sadly announced won’t be with Super One during the 2017 racing season. Henry posted on social media:
“Great night hosting the @superoneseries awards. Sadly I won’t be with you in 2017 but the season is looking like a fantastic one. Good luck”
I’m sure everyone loved having him with them at the awards and that he will be greatly missed this season.
After the night I spoke to John Hoyle who told us bit about the awards and whats to come in 2017:
“Another successful Awards weekend with record numbers attending the evening. We are so excited for the 2017 season with registration exceeding previous years. The Autosport show was a great success and some exciting things coming soon.”
We can’t wait to find out what “exciting things” are coming soon.
As well as a good night had by all, competitors were there to pick up their awards as the following photos show….
