Fresh from claiming the British Club Driver of the Year award at Sunday's Autosport Awards, 2017 BRDC British F3 champion Enaam Ahmed picked up his second accolade in two days at the London Hilton yesterday (Monday 4 Dec), winning the Jim Clark Trophy at the annual BRDC Awards.
The ceremony was attended by almost 400 guests, including Lewis Hamilton, Martin Brundle, Derek Warwick, David Coulthard and Dario Franchitti, and celebrated the achievements of British racing drivers throughout the 2017 season, while Formula One Chief Executive Chase Carey was also in attendance to present several trophies during the event.
Ahmed follows in the footsteps of Will Palmer (2015 BRDC F4 champion) and 2016 winner Matheus Leist as the recipient of the Jim Clark Trophy, which was created specifically to honour the series champion each year. The trophy features Clark’s iconic blue helmet and marks the two-time Formula One world champion’s involvement in the sport and his links to the British Racing Drivers Club.
Ahmed's prize came courtesy of a dominant year in BRDC British F3, which saw him claim 13 wins on the way to the title and a nomination for the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award.
