Motor sport TV filmer and producer David Winstanley will be remembered by an annual award within the West Wales Rally Spares R.A.C. Rally Championship.

At the end of the championship season, a special trophy will be awarded to the driver judged to have delivered the championship’s best TV moment of the season, whether in or out of the car. Competitors, marshals and fans will be invited to cast their votes in the process of deciding the winner of the award.

David, who died from natural causes in the middle of February, will be remembered by the David Winstanley Award and the winner will receive the trophy at the championship’s awards’ night at the Casa Hotel in Chesterfield on Saturday 25 October. Read More »
