WRDA Member Alex Jones wins Overall Sporting Champion for North Wales
Scottish Power and Trinity Mirror North Wales joined forces to launch the "Your
Champions 2009" awards, an exciting venture which lets the local community pay
tribute to people who made a difference in their area. The awards were announced at a
presentation dinner in Llandudno, and after being nominated as The 2009 Sporting Champion
for Anglesey, Alex won the "Overall Sporting Champion 2009" for the whole region
of North West Wales.
The award was presented by Bob Champion MBE, legendary Grand National winning jockey, along with representatives from the sponsors. Alex has been competing in the MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain in just his second year of single seater racing. Against stiff competition from around the world Alex has consistently qualified in the top 10, achieved pole position at Knockhill and a 3rd place at Donington Park.
Alex said "I was surprised, pleased, and very proud to win this award. For 2010 I have the benefit of working with top driver management team, Goman Sport, who will be advising and guiding me on several possible options that will build on my 2009 experiences and move my career forward. I'm really looking forward to it."
