The number one Pro Lite champion for 2013 won narrowly from Issac Jones and Jonty Thomas.

Each year, the final race of the season is named in honour of former club stalwart and mentor, the late Frank Atkins, who died of a heart attack at 49.

Almost $300 was raised in collection tins for the Heart Foundation and the club more than matched the amount with a further $350.

Adams was presented with a perpetual trophy by Frank’s wife Pat and grand-daughter Ellie. Pat also gave a wonderful speech about Frank that resulted in a few shed tears among club members.
