Club 2000, 2019 Round Up
Club 2000 has had a fantastic 2019 season with 90 home competitors and 40 guests across four guest classes. There has been the usual mix of excitement and disappointment, cheers and tears but we have also seen some fantastic driver development, sportsmanship and community spirit.
Championship 2019 Results
DRIVER’S DRIVER sponsored by Basic Life
Josh Twitchen (25)
We counted the votes and the front runners for this title were the team players. (Although we did have a few chancers try to sneak in a vote for themselves – you know who you are!). In the end there was a clear majority and Josh Twitchen deservedly claimed the sought-after title of Driver’s Driver. Josh started his karting career with YoungStarz and has proved himself to be a real team player.
