The Allan Barker Memorial trophy is to remember Allan who raced under number 179 from the stock car breeding ground of Mirfield, West Yorkshire, he was one of the sport’s larger than life characters. He began racing in 1971 and remained registered until 1990, although his racing had curtailed somewhat by then. Allan was a prolific car builder but, ironically, one of his best seasons was when using the Stuart Smith second car!
Allan won 16 Grand Finals, the first at Aycliffe in 1973 with the last at Northampton in 1979. Allan ‘retired’ from the sport periodically and dropped down the grades accordingly with many of his Grand Final wins coming as a yellow or blue top. Allan was also actively involved behind the scenes in his later years with the BSCDA.
Allan sadly passed away in 2006. The memorial trophy was first raced for at Coventry in 2006, with Frankie Wainman Jnr (515) the first winner. The trophy is presented to the driver who takes the Grand Final win at the annual Trust Fund meeting.
