The 2014 season marked the 25th year that Kevin Shortis has been involved in motorsport administration, chiefly working with the BRSCC.

To acknowledge this landmark, BRSCC Chairman Bernard Cottrell presented Kevin with a crystal decanter at last Saturday’s awards dinner at the Holiday Inn, Stratford-upon-Avon.

Always associated with the Ford marque, Kevin was involved in rallying in his early days but his greatest success has been with the Ford Saloons Championship and the current Fiesta Championship, which regularly attracts full grids.

Kevin was also responsible for originally introducing the growing Fiesta Junior Championship to our stable.

He is still passionate about motorsport and as long as the mind and body prevail, Kevin looks forward to the coming seasons with enthusiasm.
