Alan Moffat has for a decade been the most controversial character in Australian motor racing. Fans love him or hate him. His presence at a race meeting is enough to assure the promoters a full house. .. even if half the spectators come to see him lose.
Indeed, it is hard to find a fan who is undecided of his loyalties. If you back Ford, you back Moffat, regardless of your knowledge of the personality behind the man.
It was for us at Chequered Flag, an exciting moment when news filtered through that Allan Moffat had become the recipient of the order of the British Empire for his 'exceptional service to motor sport.'
For Allan, the award is doubly satisfying. the culmination of recognition for his dedication to the sport... And he joins Jack Brabham as the only two Australian racing drivers so honoured.
