Wigton MC named JLT MSA Club of the Year

Wigton Motor Club has been named the JLT MSA Club of the Year for the second time, following its 2005 success.

The JLT MSA Club of the Year award is designed to recognise excellence among the MSA’s registered clubs, which number almost 750. Those that enter are judged in areas such as marketing and promotion, initiatives to attract and retain volunteer officials and young members, and projects that improve road safety or benefit local communities.

The judging panel concluded: “Wigton remain an extremely strong club who have carved themselves quite a unique niche in the motor club market, perhaps helped by their location at the heart of the Lake District. There is no doubt that Wigton have made further successful inroads since their win in 2005 and keep developing their ‘product’. Their persistence for success is considered worthy of further recognition.”

Wigton MC representatives will receive the JLT MSA Club of the Year Rosebowl and a cheque at the MSA Night of Champions prize giving ceremony at the Royal Automobile Club on 18 January 2013.

Dunkeswell Kart Racing Club and the British Motorsport Marshals Club were both judged Highly Commended and will receive commemorative certificates.
