Speedcafe.com has picked up multiple honours at the 2017 Supercars Media Awards.
Senior journalist Tom Howard was recognised as Best News Reporter, while the revelation that Ludo Lacroix would join DJR Team Penske in 2017 won Best Breaking News Report.
Howard and Stefan Bartholomaeus, who broke the Lacroix story, received their awards in the pit lane Paddock Club tonight at the Coates Hire Newcastle 500.
“It was a really tough field and there were many people who deserved to win,” Howard told Speedcafe.com.
“I’d like to thank ‘Crusher’ (Brett Murray, owner) for giving me the opportunity to work at Speedcafe.com and Gordon Lomas and Stefan Bartholomaeus because they taught me everything I know about Supercars.
“I’m genuinely very proud to have received this award.”
