Helen and Dean of Team Twisted WB 38 �Hell�s Belle�
This award is presented for a really �Big Bang� at the Nostalgia Nationals at Shakespeare County this year, when unfortunately this beautiful car got upside down and backwards, shortly after running PB�s in the 9.0 s. Gladly Helen was unhurt! Big Commiserations and hope to see them back soon.
 Fastest MPH

(awarded by 'Team Paranoia')

Martin ran a great 9.159 Personal Best in his Jag-powered �Paranoia� altered at the Nostalgias at Shakey. He backed this time up within 5% with a 9.501 at the Springspeed earlier in the year.
 Best Newcomer 

Adam Price WB 99 �Go Hard or Go Home!!!�
This newcomer is a keen young man, who as part of a great team has made a big impact on the Wild Bunch. He finished in 3rd place at only his 4th event with the Bunch. The team have won a Best Altered and a Best Appearing Car Spot Prize along the way, after a lot of trials and tribulations, all of which they overcame. By his 5th event the driver ran a PB of 11.238 on his first ever outing at York Raceway, and finished in 6th place in the Wild Bunch Series! A very promising debut season! He is an enthusiastic addition to the Bunch!
 Best Altered 

Ant Harris WB 52 �Frantic�
This Altered is a well-presented and run car which ran 6 events this season, winning no less than 4 Best Burnout Spot Prizes and a Best Appearing Car award. The driver had a 4th place event finish, and finished in 5th Place in the Wild Bunch Series, whilst running numerous PB�s to ultimately lower the ET to an amazing 8.648 at 150.13 mph!
 Best Slingshot 

Terry Clifford WB 2 �Ratcatcher Resurrection�
This Slingshot is a very well-turned out and historic car. It won a Best Appearing Car award, and the team is always well-presented as well. The team participated in 7 events and finished 8th place in the Wild Bunch Series due to sheer determination and commitment.
 Best Rear-engine Dragster / Radical 

Team Wicked Lady WB 40 �The Wicked Lady�
This Rear-engined Dragster is always impeccable in appearance, and won a Best Appearing Car prize, plus 2 Best Reaction trophies during the few events that the team participated in this season. The driver had two 3rd places and a 4th place event finish, whilst lowering his PB to a 9.13.
 Best Turned Out 

Ratcatcher Racing WB 2 �Ratcatcher Resurrection�
This amiable team continues to improve the presentation of their car and crew, with a smart set of uniforms and a consistently well-turned out car. They won a Best Appearing Car award at the York event. They always strive to maintain a professional appearance, whilst promoting the Wild Bunch at shows such as the Beaulieu Custom Car show.
 Best Achiever 

Team Dog�s Bollocks WB 9 �RamRaider�
This team are longstanding members of the Wild Bunch who have this year returned to form in a big way. They won a Closest to Dial-in and 4 #1 Qualifier awards. They won 4 events, had 3 second places and 1 third place event finishes and each of the three drivers won an event. They WON every Series we run! .......The Wild Bunch, Real Steel, Roy Wilding and APIRA Series, as well as the MSA Challenge. The first ever �clean sweep�! Great achievements!
 Perseverance Award 

Terry Clifford WB 2 �Ratcatcher Resurrection�
This driver began the year well, but then struggled with several setbacks along the way, including loss of performance. But the team kept coming back and kept trying. Even through some very frustrating runs, and disappointing events they were still philosophical, and still smiling! The driver tried many things to conquer the problems and it looked like gearbox troubles ended his season. He did win a Best Appearing Car award along the way during his 7 events this year. He also finished 8th in the Wild Bunch Series.
 Daddy Cool (Sags) Personal Achievement 

Scot Durrant & Gina Rumble GAS Racing WB 4 �Tiki Munki�
This well-liked pair have really made big efforts and progress this season, moving up from last season�s 4th place finish to a 3rd place in the Wild Bunch Series, as well as a 4th place finish in the Real Steel Series, running PB�s along the way. No mean feat, considering they participated in just 5 events this season, including York, and run the whole operation on a tight budget, whilst raising a young family. Both Scottie and Gina always promote the Wild Bunch, and have attended many shows this season with the Ruby-bodied �Tiki Munki�. They have both been doing a great job for several years with their annual charity hot rod show in Theale, which they run with enthusiasm and great humour! Scottie is a longstanding Wild Bunch committee member who takes his role very seriously, whilst Gina has been writing the excellent newsletters we have been enjoying this year! They both work really hard to promote and support the Wild Bunch, and are a great asset to the club.
 Derek & Brenda Annable trophy 

Roy & Anita Human of �Human Touch Care�
This award was initiated by Derek and Brenda to be presented to a �couple� or partnership who are committed to Drag Racing, and demonstrate the family spirit of the Wild Bunch.

Last year�s winners, John Price & Graham Beckwith, have chosen the 2009 winners because of their service to both the public and racers, and their positive impact on the sport of Drag Racing. This husband and wife team run the Medical Centre at Santa Pod Raceway, as well as providing cover for other events, and running a first aid training business. In fact part of their very own Mission Statement is �Promoting and supporting Drag Racing, and its unique spirit�. Their Values are listed as �Openness, honesty and Integrity�, Excellence, Accountability and Responsibility, Commitment, Teamwork, Respect, Fairness and Equity�. Really admirable ideals. Through their work they have done a great deal to raise the profile of the sport and provide excellent care to those in need. They are always professional, dedicated, and committed to helping people.
 C & C Sportsperson 

Bob Callander WB 40 �The Wicked Lady�
This team member has only participated in a few Wild Bunch events this year, after spending time improving the racecar. Whenever he is at the track he always helps and encourages his team and the other Wild Bunch teams. He sportingly offers spare parts to fellow racers, and always does so with good-humoured banter! He is an exceptionally enthusiastic supporter of the Wild Bunch, and we are really glad to have him as a member of the Bunch.
 Don Garlits 'Spirit of Drag Racing' Shield 2008 

This year�s amiable winner is a quietly enthusiastic member of the Wild Bunch and is very committed to his racing, and always one of the first to arrive at the track. He has attended shows, promoting the Wild Bunch, and always offers to help fellow racers. He copes with any disappointment in a typically modest, sporting manner. He works hard to ensure the car is presentable and well-maintained, and has achieved success: winning an event, and finishing in the Top 4 a further five times, including making 3 Finals. He has steadily improved his performance this season, progressing to a PB of 9.402 at 146 mph. He took part in all 10 events, running both MSA and RWYB format, and made great progress in only his second event at York Raceway, running down into the 9.6s, with quite a wild ride! He finished in 4th place in the Wild Bunch Series, 3rd place in Real Steel, and Runner-up in the Roy Wilding Series. He shows great commitment to the Wild Bunch and is a valued member of the Bunch!
