As Steve Russell and myself spend a lot of time in the stages watching, we often see some spectacular driver that usually goes unrecognised or unnoticed. As a result I decided to put up a trophy for the “The Sideways Driver of the Series” The idea was to have a fun trophy that anyone was eligible to have a chance at, regardless of class, finish position, engine size etc. I just wanted to recognise the most spectacular drivers.
After each round, Steve and I got together and shortlisted 3 drivers, Here are the drivers in with a chance for the trophy in 2019:
|Round 1 - Whangarei Rally||Round 2 - Rally Coromandel||Round 3 - Far North Rally||Round 4 - Waitomo Rally|
|Stephen Barker||Dylan Turner||Doug Adnitt||Ethan O'Hagan|
|Anthony Jones||Anthony Jones||McCrae Sloper||Wayne Rowberry|
|Wayne Rowberry||Mike Goldsbury||Phil Campbell||Antony Te Rito|
From this list of names we will select an overall winner which will be announced at prize giving on the 30th November – Please see the Top Half Rally website for more details about prize giving venue etc.
