Like all awards it was a difficult choice for the Motorcycling Western Australia board, however from the nominations received from our clubs, the Official of the Year is a very deserving Paul Hinds.
Paul this year has officiated at national and international level events including the Oceania Supermoto, the Australian Superbike series, World Superbikes and in between times found time to officiate at many state rounds and club events across most disciplines.
In addition to making himself available as either Steward or Clerk of Course, Paul is a member of the Motorcycling Western Australia Officials Panel and provides guidance to the Motorcycling WA board and staff on all matters official.
Hard working and a very dedicated Paul said of being awarded Motorcycling WA's Official of the year "“It is nice to get recognition for the hours spent as an official. I averaged about 36 weekends over the past 4 years."
“I would also like to encourage more people to get involved and become officials. You never know where it can lead”.
