Our navigator award winner joined Southern Car Club five years ago and has been involved in many events on the Welsh motorsport circuit. Bob Stokoe first became a Croydon & DMC member over 30 years ago but was thrilled when he found out that Southern were a part of the Welsh Association of Motor Clubs – it kept the amount of car club joining forms to a minimum! Bob also kindly provided evidence of his most interesting moment in motorsport from the Swansea Bay National Rally in 2002. No rally drivers or navigators were harmed in the making of this video (I hope).

“1. Favourite motorsport moment in history?
Herbie winning the El Dorado.
2. If you could invite 3 drivers to a dinner party, who would you invite?
Fangio, John Surtees and Steve McQueen.
3. Dream circuit to drive around and car to do it in?
Don't know what circuit - but a Bentley Blower would be quite fun!
4. What is your driving pet hate?
People driving at 10-20mph in snow - which then results in you getting stuck as you've lost all your momentum!
5. What is your proudest moment in motorsport?
Crossing the finishing line in the London - Sydney rally in 2000 in a Volvo 144. Or possibly managing to find an engine in Kuala Lumpa and then changing it over night with two other mechanics. That kept us in the rally, after it had blown a hole through one of the pistons that afternoon!”

Our speed trophy winner has been involved in everything motorsport for over 20 years. Competing in a vast array of events, Michael Russell has never been too far from the top of the time sheets. He’s been a committee member for the past four years and first got involved with Southern Car Club during the Winter Rally in 1994.

"1. Favourite motorsport moment in history?
Not really just one but probably World rallying throughout the 90’s.
2. If you could invite 3 drivers to a dinner party, who would you invite?
Jenson Button, Kimi Raikkonen and Petter Solberg.
3. Dream circuit to drive around and car to do it in?
Not sure I dream about them, but some being realistic, I would have to go with Mount Panorama Circuit. For a combo Spa-Francorchamps in a Porsche 956.
4. What is your driving pet hate?
People not returning to the left after overtaking.
5. What is your proudest moment in motorsport?
I worked as a mechanic for an amateur team in the BritCar series and we competed in the 24hour event at Silverstone in 2011. We finished 15th, but the achievement was completing an event where you’re on your feet for 36 hours and preparing days beforehand."
