In total 17 prizes were awarded with the club's championship for drivers on multi-venue stages rallies going to Welwyn Garden City's Martyn Andrews.

Along with co-driver Steve Greenhill he guided his Subaru Impreza to some impressive results, the most notable of which was on the gravel forest tracks of Wales in the Red Kite Stages Rally.

The presentations were made by honorary member Anthony Ashwell, himself a former autocross and rallycross competitor.

Club president Richard Warne paid tribute to co-founder Tony Strong who died during the year before looking to the year ahead.

He said: "We had a good year and we look forward to another one in 2020, especially as we will be assisting on a new closed public road event, the Hertfordshire Stages Rally, which will be run in the Stevenage area in July."
