Carmarthens Rhys Lloyd was presented with the prestigious WRDA Welsh Young Driver of the Year Award at the glittering WRDA Award Night at the Copthorne
Hotel in Cardiff on Saturday. Lloyd was given the trophy by WRDA Chairman Mike Woods, who said "Once again there were a lot of talented young drivers in
contention, but Rhys had an almost perfect season in 2008 by decisively winning not only the Welsh Sports & Saloon Car Championship but also the LMA Euro
Saloon Championship as well. He has matured into one of the top young saloon car drivers in British racing, and the club was pleased to be able to acknowledge his
achievements." Rhys himself said "I am thrilled to receive this award, it's a fabulous trophy to be given. I will be looking to defend my championships in 2009"

It was a nice achievement and it was nice to have the support of the Welsh Racing Drivers Association.
