The Dave Kotch Driving Award

In 2010 the AHCSO created an award in memory of Dave Koch. Dave was very much a car guy who was more into the mechanics of the hobby than the social scene, but was very active in the Southern Ontario club. After rebuilding their 100M, David and Janet drove it to Conclave San Antonio where it achieved a high level Gold Concours award. On his return Dave proceeded to modify the car to be a reliable long distance driver, and put many miles on it before his passing.
The award is voted on by the executive and presented annually by the AHCSO president to the driver who best represents their love of driving their Healey that year.
