As many of you know, sadly we lost Derek Willetts last year after his short battle with cancer. Derek had been in Vee seemingly for ever. He was a part of the Vee community as a driver, a mechanic and a team owner for decades. A fantastic trophy has been purchased by Mike Oldknow, Paul Taylor and the Vee Centre in commemoration of Derek. It was presented for the first time to the winner of the Vee Festival at the end of last season. The plan is to present it for different things each year. Derek won’t mind us saying that he wasn’t always at the front himself but a happy and dedicated participant in the thick of things. Therefore the award will not always be given for outright performance or race wins. Cadwell Park was Derek’s favourite circuit. Therefore this season the Willetts Trophy will be awarded this weekend in Class B to the driver (not currently in the championship top 6) with the best combined Class B race results over the 2 races of the weekend. It will be simple scoring of first in class B eligible drivers is 1 , 2nd 2, 3rd 3 etc. Clearly lowest score wins. In the event of a tie, the trophy goes to the winner with the best place finish (ie 1&3 beats 2&2). If things are still tied it will be decided on fastest race lap! Simple! We look forward to a great weekend and to remembering our mate Derek.
