LAKESIDE promotional duo Stuart Douglas and Jon Cook are celebrating after winning the BBC London Outstanding Contribution to London Sport Award 2010.

The pair, who are now entering their fifth year together at the Arena-Essex Raceway venue, were recognised for the huge strides the club has taken both on and off the track with the Hammers now firmly established as one of the top teams in the country.

Cook said: “We are truly honoured to be recognised by the BBC and it’s a win for the positive manner in which we and all those helpers have promoted and rebuilt the club and in particular the way our fans have embraced this new era for the club and have actively encouraged new followers to the cause.

“Our thanks go to all those at BBC London who have been very supportive in the level and quality of their coverage for the only remaining Speedway venue within the greater Capital”.
