Porsche Club GB Awards Winners

Celebrating the achievements of Club members and volunteers 

Earlier this year we invited members to nominate Regions, Registers and individual members who should be considered for special recognition for their contribution to the Club. This year we received a record number of submissions and we would like to thank everyone for their contributions. 
There were many worthy candidates but for each category, there can only be one winner, as chosen by a Panel of Peers drawn randomly from our volunteer network. Nominations were assessed on the basis of the evidence submitted, not on the number of nominations received.
Here are the 2023 award winners:

The Sheffield Trophy (Region of the Year)
R10 – Milton Keynes & Northamptonshire – Sue Rollings
Awarded to the Region which has consistently delivered a complete program of events for its members and has taken positive steps to increase membership.
This is the second year in a row that R10 has been awarded the trophy for Region of the Year,
with an overwhelming number of nominations all filled with appreciation for Sue and her husband Mike. One member summarised it perfectly: “The Region has continued to flourish. Instead of resting on her laurels, Sue has continued to work hard, delivering great events for all members. Her efforts have encouraged participation and the Region is in an even better place than it was 12 months ago.”
The David Gillhooly Trophy (Register of the Year)
Panamera – Randall Flack
Awarded to the Register which has consistently embraced the notion of a Register by innovation, by bringing register members together at virtual and physical events and regularly offered support by providing regular articles in Porsche Post, online, and directly to members to promote their specific Register.
While still a relatively new Register Secretary, Randall Flack was the deserved winner for Register of the Year. In just a short period of time, he has already held several very popular Register specific events across the UK to grow the community of Panamera owners and foster relationships with similar Registers to help create larger events and displays.
The Paul Kelley Trophy (Spirit of Porsche Club GB)
Caitlin Adams & George Mayson
Awarded to the member who has consistently upheld the standards of PCGB by supporting and encouraging membership, embracing change, becoming involved in events and supporting the club in what may be considered above and beyond that normally expected of a member.

While Caitlin and George made the difficult decision to stand down as Regional Organisers for Scotland North, it is important to see their hard work recognised after more than five years at the helm. Always friendly and welcoming, Caitlin and George navigated the Region through Covid and its aftermath, keeping up enthusiasm for the Club. Car-nuts to the core, one nominee described them both as “an epitome of all that is good in PCGB”.  
The Bill Goodman Award
Ed & Nick Pike
Awarded to the member who has been judged by the panel as having an exceptional record of excellent service. Open to members who have not less than 10 years and not more than 20 years of continuous membership.
As well as leading the London Region with an excellent choice of events in the capital city and further afield, both Ed and Nick have made significant contributions to help improve the Club, devoting countless hours to behind-the-scenes work.
The John Piper Trophy
Peter Cook
Awarded to a member with over 20 years continuous service who has made a significant contribution for the good and benefit of members. It is a great honour to award the John Piper Trophy to Peter Cook. For more than 20 years Peter has dedicated himself to the development of the Club Archive, a hugely important part of not just Club history but the history of Porsche as a marque.
His efforts are highly regarded by Porsche GB as well as the Club. He has curated the most extensive range of documents and artefacts and regularly visits the Club office to continue his work. Since the Cornbury House open days have started he is there to answer members questions and proudly show them the items in the collection.
Member of the Year
Peter Rolt
Awarded to a member, who has completed at least 12 months membership, deemed most suitable by the panel as having made an exceptional contribution to their Region, Register, or to the Club during the award year. This year’s deserved winner was Peter Rolt.
A member of the R7 Co-ordinators Group, Peter and his wife Val have created a very successful Eastern Sub group, with highly attended monthly Club meetings thanks to Pete's infectious enthusiasm bringing people together. In the last 12 months, as well as the regular events, Peter ran and organised R7 Porsches on the Prom, raising more than £2000 for the RNLI. His crowning achievement was reviving the Yorkshire Porsche Festival at a new location, which thanks to his planning and efforts, was a successful and popular event.
Photo of the Year
Russell Stuart Wheatley
A new award for this year, Club members were invited to submit their best Porsche photo taken in 2023. This award is for a photograph taken by a member that demonstrates both photographic skills and an ability to illustrate the enjoyment of Porsches. This year’s winner is Russell Stuart Wheatley for his incredible photo shown at the top of this page, taken at the 2023 Goodwood Members’ Meeting.
On behalf of the entire Club, many congratulations and thanks to all the winners and members who nominated. The award winners are a credit to our Club and role models for everyone. Arrangements are being made to present the physical awards appropriately.
