Ireland's Malcolm Clein gave CWS Racing something to celebrate when he took the 2004 Rookie of the Year title.

After the news of team leader Colin White's withdrawal from the final two rounds due to Colin being diagnosed with cancer, Malcolm was determined to give the team a boost.

His target in the first race was to stay ahead of nearest rivals Mike Luck and Skid Carrera. A detremined drive by the Irishman extended his lead to 30 points and he knew he only had to finish the second to secure the title. Malcolm then drove a sensible race, staying in touch with Mike Luck and taking the chequered flag two places behind the West Midlands driver.

"I am over the moon for the team and myself," said Malcolm Clein. "I was determined to do this for Colin and the rest of the team and so I drove for the title."
