The West Australian off road community cleaned up at the 2017 CAMS West Australian State Awards evening, held over the weekend in Perth.
Along with the celebration of the outright and class winners in the Carnarvon Motel Western Australian Off Road Racing Championship, there were a number of special awards presented to the off road community.
The Carnarvon Motel Three Springs 360 event won the CAMS State Event of the Year for the second year running. Event organiser Jeremy Beck identified the team effort of people from all of the clubs as being part of what makes this event special. Beck also paid tribute to the people of Three Springs and the competitors who last year endured one of the wettest events on record.
Mathew Beck was the next big winner, taking out the Burson Auto Parts Future Star award. The award capped off what has been a great debut season for himself personally and also the WA Off Road Junior Development Program. The youngster also took home the Performance 2WD class championship for drivers.
Hugh Piercy, outgoing WA Off Road Panel Chair, was recognised for his service to the sport and Peter Barrett from the Carnarvon Motel was on hand to present a large cheque to the four WA off road clubs for the 2018 season sponsorship.
