Gary Elder and Jack Ryan were senior and junior champions respectively in Caithness Autocross Club's roll of honour for 2020.

The prize presentations were held last weekend during a socially distanced outdoor ceremony at the business premises of G S Donn, Harpsdale.

Gordie Donn also sponsored the awards, which consisted of specially commissioned Caithness stone trophies made by local company Norse Stone, based at Westfield. The winner of each class had an action photo of their car engraved on the trophy.

The 2021 season is due to start on the first weekend in May and there are a number of new drivers intending to compete this year. Details can be found on the club’s Facebook page.
