Automotive Journalist of the Year
There is no doubt that automotive writer Gerry Malloy is Journalist of the Year after he won two top automotive award titles at a banquet honouring the automobile journalism profession on Friday, October 30, 1998 in Belleville, Ontario.
Malloy was named both the 1998 Automotive Journalist of the Year as well as the winner of the Castrol Chinthe Award for Automotive Writing.
Malloy was chosen Automotive Journalist of the Year because he impressed the jury with his well-written variety of submission. "There was first and foremost his nostalgic and exquisite day-by-day account of travelling Route 66. He adds a well-written car review of the Audi TT Coupe and tells why the Rallye Baie des Chalers in Quebec is arguably the toughest round in the Canadian Rally Championship series", said Brian Cantley of the Canadian Newspaper Assocaion who headed a panel of three independent judges with much experience between them judging both journalism and newspaper awards.
Malloy won this year's Castrol Chinthe Award for Automotive Writing for his article entitled Powertrains of the Future.
Malloy writes for the Wheel section of the Toronto Star, as well
as World of Wheels and Canadian Auto World magazines.
