Ed Ecclestone Award 2019

Ed Ecclestone was the archetypal backstage supporter. For decades he could be fund supporting teams, races, individuals and the sport in its widest sense. Ed was a volunteer who put in thousands of hours and thousands of pounds without being recognised. In his memory we have a perpetual trophy awarded to an individual that has put in an exceptional amount of volunteer effort into the sport.

We are now looking for nominations for this years' recipient. The winner will be selected by a panel of previous winners, from nominations received from you. Please send your nominations to me by 15th October, either by PM or by email (address in the yearbook) or in writing by post or pressed into my hand at Tees, or some other time.
