Mclaren AUTOSPORT BRDC Award

Chris is in his 2nd season of car racing having followed in his fathers footsteps.  Chris started out in Formula Ford and promptly won 3 championships in 2011.  In 2012 Chris made the step into 'Slick and Wings' with BARC Formula Renault.  In his last race at Donington Chris stood on the podium twice in the same weekend.

The McLaren AUTOSPORT BRDC Award was inaugurated in 1989, when future Formula 1 star David Coulthard won. Since then it has grown to include driving and fitness tests for six finalists each year, with the winner being announced at the AUTOSPORT Awards every December.

The aim is to boost the prospects of young British racing talent and the list of former winners is impressive. As well as David Coulthard, 2009 F1 World Champion Jenson Button, Force India driver Paul di Resta, multiple IndyCar champion Dario Franchitti, DTM aces Gary Paffett and Jamie Green, and sportscar stars Anthony Davidson, Oliver Gavin, Jonny Kane, and Darren Turner are all among the 22 previous winners.

Each nominee, which will be announced in October, will be tested at Silverstone in November in F2, Mercedes DTM and McLaren GT3 machinery before being subjected to a fitness test and an interview by the judging panel.  The winner is revealed at the AUTOSPORT INTERNATIONAL Awards evening at the Grosvenor House Hotel.
