As well as the society's prize for the best preserved vehicle which was won this year by Geoff and Ian Norris with their Silver Star coach, a new award was offered. On the day of the rally, the Mayor and Mayorees of Gosport were so impressed by the event that he offered a new award for the vehicle which travelled the longest distance to be at Stokes Bay. This Gosport Borough plaque has been awarded to David Cocking of Baildon in Essex who brought his Mercedes Benz N116 on a journey of 120 miles to the Rally.

Congratulations to both sets of winners from the Rally Team!
