Club Annual Awards 2020


H.J.Donaldson Trophy for services to marshalling nominated by the clubs chief marshal.
Winner, Paul Langford. Paul has bravely battled with a few serious health issues over the last couple of years, but they have never dampened his enthusiasm, ever present & frequently promotes OMC on Black Country Radio.

R.I.C.S Trophy for meritorious achievement. A team award for this year, and so well deserved. Our NHS club members, joint winners, Nicole Hubball, Ruth Langford & Ann Ward. I do not think any words of explanation are required.


The Colley Cup for first co driver on OMC AGBO 2020 Rally, Winner, Paul Rudge. Co Driving for Dean Baker (OMC) 13th o/all.

Intasprint U/17 Junior Cup. Winner, Archie Holt, second year on the trot, a real auto test talent for the future.


The Richard Southam Trophy for effort & endeavour. Winner, Derrick Wallbank. A real committee / club asset, just gets on with it, and has recently taken over as club competition secretary from long standing member Robert Cotterell, who has retired from club duties after some 40 years. Thank you, Bob.


The Bill Donaldson Cup for meritorious achievement in motor sport. Winners, James Nicholls & David Allman for an amazing result on the Roger Albert Clark Rally at the end of 2019. 9th O/All.


The Captains Cup . Our premier award for services to OMC over a long period.
Winners, Simon & Lynn Whittick. Long serving club members & mostly as a team, Lynn always in the thick of it…Simon mentions his first event officialdom for OMC was in 1979, A very well deserved and long overdue award. This award is for precisely what they have contributed over many years.


The David Owen Cup. Best OMC event for 2020. The Ernest Owen Car Trial. David Allman & Tim Beard mastered the OMC come back event post the first Covid lock down on  a wonderful sunny day in September. What a great event at a very spectacular venue, Catton Park.


All award winners will eventually receive cups & memento awards. When our crazy situation eventually gets back to normality It is the club’s intention to hold a reunion party at our meeting venue.
