Driver nomination: Alex Reed
Reason: Alex started racing with us when he couldn’t even legally drive on the road. He’d never driven a rear wheel drive before and got to grips with the 350bhp Exige V6 Cup R quickly, taking a stunning win at the second round of the championship. The points structure, which has been modified for 2016, didn’t favour his class so he missed out on the championship but set a series of poles, fastest laps and race wins in challenging conditions. He also set pole for the Anglesey Race of Remembrance in November before a fire ended his race. Alex is going on to British GT4 in 2016 and is a definite GT star of the future. This guy will race at Le Mans. Championship organiser
