Club Chairman, George Peach handed over the rings during the evening saying: ‘The club is very appreciative of the generosity of Naoki Hagiwara of CSA in Japan for sponsoring these very special Championship rings that are each unique in their design and to the Southern 100. ‘Unfortunately, Naoki and his team are unable to be with us this year, as they were last February, and we look forward to seeing them at Billown in a few months’ time.’ Photo courtesy of Jim Gibson of Ellan Vannin Images
