Hundreds of British Touring Car Championship fans have given Harry Vaulkhard a big reason to be cheerful after voting him the winner of HiQ’s first champagne moment of 2009.
The Chevrolet Lacetti star received the most votes for his impressive all round display at Donnington Park, when he qualified in second place, and went on to secure 5th spot and 7th place in races one and three.
Harry received 40 per cent of the votes, narrowly beating Rob Collard (36 per cent) and James Thompson (21 per cent).
He will receive his bottle of bubbly from BTCC fan Kerry Earl, who was picked at random to present the prize. She will also receive a pair of tickets to a future race in the season.
She said: “I voted for Harry because to put his car 2nd on the grid and hold his own throughout all three races was an impressive achievement.
“When you consider how well he performed when battling with Jason Plato and Mat Jackson, you realize what a great effort it was.”
Harry was suitably pleased with his award and said he was enjoying regular tussles further up the grid this season.
“It is exciting times for me and the team. Everyone is working extremely hard and this HiQ champagne moment award is am lovely reminder of the results we achieved at Donington.
“We want to do better at Oulton and we hope that the bottle of bubbly will be a good omen for me and the team.”
HiQ is hoping that the popularity in its champagne moment accolades will continue after Oulton Park on Sunday.
