Well, we hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas weekend. Now for a lot of people it's time to dig in for those tough few work days between Christmas and New Year. After the exhausting process that was tallying the votes for the 2009 Speedhunters Awards, we've finally gathered the results. We'll be announcing the full list of winners on Wednesday, but for now we have to show some love for the runners-up in each category. With the incredible amount of votes turned in, even these second place finishers have made a huge impact.
OK, let's get on with the list!
Taking runner-up in the Air Machine of the Year category is Rob's incredibly clean Bagged MK1 Golf.
In the Retro Machine of the Year category, the Perfect KPGC10 Skyline GT-R was the runner up.
The Race Car of the Year runner-up is the Rahal Letterman Racing BMW M3 GT2.
Taking second in the Stance of the Year voting was none other than Matt Powers' Nissan 240SX. The readers showed they like a car that is flush, low, and still capable on the track.
Rat of the Year was a tough category. In the end the runner-up spot went to the Little Boy 1930 Ford.
The Time Attack Car of the Year voting seemed a bit unusual with two sets of people voting up their favorites. Runner-up would go to the Hi Octane Racing Skyline GT-R.
In Speed Demon of the Year, the Garage Saurus Carbon R32 GT-R takes the runner-up spot.
The 2009 Pro Drift Car of the Year runner-up is the Ross Petty Garage Boso S15.
The Street Drift Car of the Year category had an amazing voter turnout, with a just a few votes separating the top two cars. It would be Ameen Rizvi's Toyota Cressida that took the runner-up spot.
In the Demo Car of the Year category, you guys showed some love for Vaughn Gittin's Jr Mustang RTR-C. The RTR-C would end up taking the runner-up position.
The results of the New Car of the Year category weren't terribly surprising. The exotic Lexus LF-A would be the runner up.
And finally, the runner up in the Personality of the Year category went to Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson. I guess this just goes to show the influence that Jeremy and Top Gear have around the world.
Alright, that wraps up the list of runners-up for the 2009 Speedhunters Awards. Can you make out who the winners are going to be already?
Stay tuned for the full list of winners a little later this week!
