What do People Say?
"To be fair to Tony, we really did ask him very last minute to come to our annual awards dinner the Monster Energy MSA British Rallycross Championship awards. You wouldn’t have thought it though. He did a superb job, and it was clearly evident even with such a late request he had researched his topics thoroughly, meaning that his appearance was of the ultimate professional that our guests really enjoyed. He kept it running well, and was ever so flexible with some last minute award changes.
How do I back that up…? Very easy, when people came up to me afterwards and said it was the best awards dinner they had been to in years. He does not know it yet but he will be back with us next year."Willie Woods, Manager British Rallycross Championship
