2017 Super Lap Scotland Awards Report

Thanks to Marshall Wishart (Mazda RX8, class F) we were invited to join everyone at the 2018 SLS Awards! It was a fantastic evening of fun at the Hilton Doubletree North Queensferry with good food and even better company right into wee small hours. The full stat-twiddling numbers are published here so please feel free to visit those to see the full standings. I would like to celebrate the evening by sharing some of the more memorable images from the evening…

 

There was a great turn out for the evening and the room was completely packed. There were a variety of main awards and some great extra rewards for some very special people.
Talking the amount of awards, here is the left hand table of silverware ready for handing out…
Once the left hand side have been dealt with, the right hand side had to be dealt with…
The awards for class F, With Marshall picking up the 2nd place trophy with Neil Methven collecting the converted 1st place and Martin Brown in 3rd. Only 7 points separate 1st to 3rd.
BUT not all the awards are for how you do on the track. Marshall also picked up the best kept race car award. Marshall lives and works on Shetland so its amazing how well the car is kept and how far it has to travel to get to Knockhill.  
Once the food and awards are finished, we get a chance to view all the silverware collected on the evening. Sadly not everyone can be a winner.  

Once the awards ceremony was complete, the dance, beer pong and racing simulator were brought out and the party began in earnest! It was great chance to speak to everyone and catch up before the season kicks off.  I would like to thank the many people I spoke to who enjoyed my photography over the year and I would also like to ask people who do follow us on social media to continue sharing, liking and tagging SLS drivers, fans and pit crews so as many people as possible who are involved can see the images and keep enjoying the days they spend on the track.

So that is brief overview of the SLS 2017 awards night! We now move forward to the new season, ready and refreshed to break those lap records. Hopefully I will get a shot of you doing it.
