Andy Soriano (USA)

 Nomination
There is a push to formalise the Mini Maxis in favour of owner-drivers; look at some of the results this year and you could be forgiven for wondering why any ruling is necessary. Andy Soriano and his largely Corinthian crew put down yet another marker when they capped a good season with victory in the Rolex Middle Sea Race on their Mills 66 Alegre, ahead of numerous higher-profile professional teams
 Why they won
‘A scholar and a gentleman’ – Led Pritchard! ‘With 3 Rolexes in 12 months it’s about time you had a new pair of shoes to match! Thanks for a great season’ – Mark Thomas; ‘A driving force behind the owner-driver movement’ – Kevin George; ‘Andy has pursued one goal from the outset, to win with the people who he likes to go sailing with… and to look after their interests as much as his own; a true gentleman in every sense of the word’ – Mark Mills.
