BRDC British F3 drivers Linus Lundqvist, Tom Gamble and Billy Monger were among the prize winners at the annual BRDC Awards at the London Marriott Grosvenor Square yesterday (3 December).
Just a day on from the Autosport Awards, hundreds of motorsport luminaries gathered once more at the event hosted by broadcaster Jake Humphrey and Archie Hamilton.
Lundqvist was present to receive the Jim Clark Trophy, handed out each year to the BRDC British F3 Champion. He commented: “It’s an honour to receive the Jim Clark Trophy and to have been invited to this prominent event. I’ve been lucky enough to experience so many great things this year, and this is the icing on the cake in many ways. I’d like to thank the BRDC for having me – it’s quite an inspiration to be around this group of people and to listen in to their stories from the sport.”
Gamble, who won the prestigious McLaren Autosport BRDC Award the night before, picked up the Chris Bristow Trophy as part of his recognition, and has also been inducted into the BRDC SuperStars programme for 2019.
Finally, the Innes Ireland Trophy for the driver displaying the best qualities of courage and sportsmanship epitomised by the late Innes Ireland, was presented to Monger, who made his racing return in BRDC British F3 this year, and made headlines around the world with his multiple podiums and pole positions.
