The Marshal of the Year Award is one chosen by the marshals on the hill. It is awarded to recognise the contribution made during the year to the Marshals, the Club, the Hill and the Drivers.
This year the award recognises someone who has supported all season in a range of roles, has supported the hill with setup and takedown and has done it all with a cheery attitude. He has accepted each role asked of him with enthusiasm and given his all.
The 2022 Penske Trophy Marshal of the Year is Alan Hancock.
In recognising Alan, that is not to diminish the efforts of all the other marshals at the venue. This year, of all years, has been exceptionally challenging. In particular, the events in Top Paddock in June showed the hard work and professionalism of the Top Paddock crew, the Rescue team and the on-site paramedic crew.
