Yesterday, Henry Frye provided you with a thorough summary of our race
weekend at VIR. Today, I am pleased to announce to the FOT community that we
a new Champion for 2008.
In the spirit of the beloved Martha McDougal, we selected a Triumph pilot
that exemplifies the comradery, perseverance, racecraft and positive attitude,
for which Martha was so well known. After a painstaking, and time consuming
review of our complex scoring system, we are pleased to tell you that Mark
Wheatley was selected as our 2008 Champion.
Mark was presented the trophy, including Martha's left shoe, by Dennis
DeLap, our 2007 Champion. The award was in recognition of his years of
contribution to the sport and on-track performance during the weekend's
racing. Mark is
well known as always having a smile, or wry grin, ready at a moments notice.
He has willingly assisted in the repair of cars with which he competes, often
loaning his own spares in the process. He has steadily progressed as a
driver and shared his knowledge with those coming up through the ranks. It's a
shame none of us can understand him when he speaks.
