Brett (left) and Hamish Dobie stop at the Naracoorte Caltex (formerly Scott Petroleum) depot in Naracoorte to collect their Scott Petroleum Sportsperson Of The Year award from Caltex commercial business manager Troy Henschke earlier this week.FATHER and son team Brett and Hamish Dobie have collected the Scott Petroleum Sportsperson Of The Year award.
Team Dobie was the October Sportsperson Of The Month following their great showing at the Bulk Nutrients Elite Sidecar Motocross Titles in Horsham.
The team finished with a third placing and a potential European trip as a result.
As winners of the Sportsperson Of The Year the Dobies received a $100 voucher from Scott Petroleum Naracoorte (now Caltex).
“It’s good recognition,” Brett said, thanking Scott Petroleum for the sponsorship.
“It (sidecar motocross) is not such a high-profile sport.”
The sidecar season is over for now with the Dobies taking a well-earned break, but they expect to fire back up in the new year.
In the last weekend of April the sidecar spectacular is on in Naracoorte, a popular event which the Dobies are expected to feature highly at.
Hamish said he and his dad travel a lot for the sport and appreciate any help they can get.
“We are always looking for any sponsors ( big or small) that would like to jump on board and support our racing seasons,” he said.
“We usually race all over SA and western Victoria, and also if the chance to go overseas to race comes our way will be chasing some sort of help as it will be an expensive trip!”
