The competition has closed, the votes have been counted and HiQ can reveal that the winner of the final champagne moment award of 2011 goes to Worcestershire speedster, Rob Austin.

With 41 per cent of the vote, the Audi A4 driver claimed the top spot following his impressive performance in race 3 at Silverstone, giving what fans' believe is a glimpse of his potential in the Dunlop British Touring Car Championship 2012.

One of only a few drivers on the grid with a full NGTC specification car, Rob has had a multitude of successes which has seen him awarded with a podium finish and a previous champagne moment award at Rockingham.

Winning fan Susanne Jones praised Rob for his 'ability to overtake the championship contenders' in the final round, which concluded an impressive debut season for the Evesham driver.

Jason Plato came runner up with 36 per cent of the fans' vote and Gordon Shedden in a respectable third with 12 per cent.

Susanne has won two complimentary tickets to the first round of the 2012 season, Brands Hatch and will award Rob with champagne before one of the race rounds.
