The CNC Heads Championship ventured across the border to Knockhill for its latest rounds at which they competed for the Cam Forbes Trophy.

This marvellous trophy was given to the North Western Centre by Cam's wife Dawn in memory of her husband who was a championship regular for many years. Cam won his class twice in his quick Westfield SEiW as well as taking the Spirit of the Championship award in 2011.

Dawn asked that the trophy be presented to the driver who improved the most between qualifying and the race, something that Cam had to do as his qualifying performances were usually not as good as his races! The Centre came up with a method of determining this over two races and it is competed for at one of Cam's favourite circuits. Previously this has been Anglesey but this year it was decided to award it during the Knockhill meeting.

Dawn and her daughter Jenni were present at the meeting to watch the racing and make the presentation.

The racing was such that the competition for the trophy was incredibly close, after the first race several drivers were in the running. The second race played out such that one driver came to the fore, but only by 1 gained place.

The runners up for the trophy were Paul Rotheroe and Luke Armiger, with the winner being Jon Woolfitt in his Spire GTR. Well Done Jon.
