Each year the VRRA presents special awards that acknowledge notable accomplishments by our members over the course of the racing season.
Many of the awards are presented in memory of VRRA alumni who are no longer with us but who worked tirelessly to promote the sport of vintage road racing while some are original awards from major sponsors who have supported road racing in Canada over the years.
Awards are presented at our Annual General Meeting in November.
The #1 plate is our most prodigious award and is presented to the top VRRA rider each season. Originally decided by member ballot, it is now determined by the Executive Membership and the recipient may display the #1 plate on all their machines for the following season.
The Presidents award was established by Phil Mahood, a long time member and early President of VRRA.
