Mr.K - ZCAR Spirit Award

  1. Objective
    Increase member participation at club meetings and club events. We are a social car club and most of us are not into racing or extreme car shows. Therefore, this championship is rewarding members of the club based on the participation rather than competition.
  2. Award
    The winner will receive a trophy, which will get the name of the winner engraved. The winner can keep the trophy for one year and it is then passed on to the next winner, similar to the INDY 500 Borg-Warner Trophy or the NHL Stanley Cup. The award is called the Mr.K - ZCAR Spirit Award. The winner will also get a Z car related item suitable for the winner's car valued at approx. $350.
  3. Points System
    The points system is kept simple to facilitate the upkeep and tracking. Points will be awarded on a membership basis. Family memberships will be counted as one member whereby each part of the family can represent the membership.
