Cal Crutchlow talks Torrens Trophy

Cal Crutchlow on receiving the prestigious Torrens Trophy at a ceremony in London's Royal Automobile Club. The LCR Honda MotoGP rider has been recognised for his outstanding achievements by winning two premier class motorcycle Grand Prix races, the first British rider to achieve the feat since Sheene at the Swedish Grand Prix in 1981. The British rider made history with a maiden MotoGP race victory in the Czech Republic before repeating the feat at Phillip Island to become the first-ever British winner of the Australian MotoGP race. Crutchlow beat fellow nominees double World Superbike champion Jonathan Rea and Isle of Man TT circuit lap record holder Michael Dunlop to the award for 2017. It has been presented ten times in its history and only when the club feels that the achievement justifies it. Last year Ian Hutchinson scooped the award for his incredible comeback from career-threatening injuries to return to the top step of the rostrum at the Isle of Man TT.
