APIRA Perpetual Awards for the 2014 season


Avon Park International Racing Association and Eurodragster.com are again teaming up to give readers the chance of input to the APIRA Perpetual Awards, which will be presented at the APIRA Trophy Presentation on Saturday 7th March 2015. The votes of Eurodragster.com readers will be taken into consideration when the APIRA Committee decides upon its winners.

For several of the 2014 season awards, shortlists have been decided for which votes can be submitted by E-Mail.

How to vote

To submit a vote, click on the link under the name for which you would like to vote. An E-Mail will automatically be generated with your chosen name in the title; all you then need to do is to hit the Send button.

If the E-Mail is not automatically generated with your chosen name in the title then simply send an E-Mail to apiraawards2014@btinternet.com giving the category (Iris Page Memorial Trophy etc.) as the subject of the E-Mail and the name of the person for whom you wish to vote in the body of the E-Mail.

One vote per E-Mail address will be accepted for each Award. Voting is per Award, so for example when you have voted for the Iris Page Memorial Trophy then you may of course vote for the APIRA Endeavour Trophy and so on.

Please note that blatant attempts at organising mass votes - for example asking workmates, forum members or Facebook friends to vote en masse - are easily identified and all such votes will be disallowed as they have been in previous years. Concerted attempts at vote-rigging will result in the nominee being removed from the shortlist whether or not that nominee had any knowledge or involvement.
