APIRA Endeavour Award winner, our own Simon, writes: It is a real honour to win the APIRA Endeavour Award and I am sorry I couldn't be at the ceremony in person. I would like to thank all the officials at APIRA for generously giving facilities and information, often requested at very short notice. I would like to thank Tog of Eurodragster.com for giving me the opportunity to work with him on the site which has been, and continues to be, an amazing journey. Eurodragster.com's readers and sponsors should also take credit for providing us with content and backing. I would finally like to pay tribute to my wife Ros for supporting my work in drag racing. See you at the track!
The following special awards were also presented. Congratulations to:
