Santa Pod Racers Club Perpetual Awards for the 2020 season


Santa Pod Racers Club and Eurodragster.com are again teaming up to give readers the chance of input to the SPRC Perpetual Awards. The location and date for presentation of the trophies will be announced in due course, as the SPRC Dinner Dance is subject to Covid restrictions being lifted. The votes of Eurodragster.com readers will be taken into consideration when the SPRC Committee decides upon its winners.

For several of the 2020 season awards, shortlists have been decided for which votes can be submitted by E-Mail.

How to vote

The shortlists for the Perpetual Awards will be published on a regular basis starting on Monday 7th December 2020. Nominations for the Alex Brachtvogel Memorial Trophy will be accepted starting on the same date and throughout the voting period.

To submit a vote, click on the link under the name for which you would like to vote. An E-Mail will automatically be generated with your chosen name in the title; all you then need to do is to hit the Send button.

If the E-Mail is not automatically generated with your chosen name in the title then simply send an E-Mail to 2020sprcawards@eurodragster.com giving the category (Most Promising Newcomer, Best-Appearing Car, Best-Appearing Bike etc) as the subject of the E-Mail and the name of the person for whom you wish to vote in the body of the E-Mail.

One vote per E-Mail address will be accepted for each Award. Voting is per Award, so for example when you have voted for Most Promising Newcomer then you may of course vote for Best-Appearing Car, Best-Appearing Bike and so on.

Please note that blatant attempts at organising mass votes - for example asking workmates, forum members or Facebook friends to vote en masse - are easily identified and all such votes will be disallowed as they have been in previous years. Concerted attempts at vote-rigging will result in the nominee being removed from the shortlist whether or not that nominee had any knowledge or involvement.

ALEX BRACHTVOGEL MEMORIAL TROPHY

This trophy was first awarded to Santa Pod Raceway's late Chief Marshal, Alex Brachtvogel, in 2001 to mark his outstanding contribution to Santa Pod Raceway and the sport as a whole. After Alex's death the trophy was named in his memory and continues to be awarded for contribution to drag racing.

There is no shortlist for the Alex Brachtvogel award. Nominations are invited for racers, race officials, track and safety crews, club officials, media, or anyone else who has contributed to the sport. Last year the trophy was awarded to SPRC marshal Alison Hackney.
