Award for Haslam

Award for Leon Haslam
Leon Haslam was presented with the British Rider of the Year award at the Guild of Motoring Writers annual dinner and awards evening at the RAC Club in Pall Mall, London.

Haslam, the 2010 World Superbike Championship runner-up, received the trophy to join legendary riders such as Mike Hailwood and Barry Sheene as a recipient of the award.

"It was a great night and it was a privilege to be recognised by the Guild, especially as the majority of the 500 or so members are from the four-wheeled world," said Haslam.

The Guild is the world's largest organisation for motoring journalists with members in 26 countries and more than 350 from the UK.

Haslam led the WSBK title chase from rounds 1-6, before eventual champion Max Biaggi (Aprilia) took control from Salt Lake City onwards.

Haslam is moving from Alstare Suzuki to BMW for 2011.

It’s a fair old feather in his cap for winning nothing. I would go with Daveyboy, either Hutchy or Scott Redding. But before people start jumping up and down, say well Scott Redding won nothing. Just think about what it must have been like for a teenager to go through the trauma he must have endured at and after Misano, then come back has strong as he did. Then Hutchy, to achieve what he did in one week on the Isalnd, well we may never see that again, then go on and win races at the Ulster. A superb achievement.
