Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Award winner Johnathan Hoggard received the Chris Bristow Trophy at the BRDC Awards in London yesterday (Monday).
The trophy, presented by the BRDC to the winner of the Young Driver of the Year Award each year, is named in honour of Chris Bristow, a promising young British talent who tragically lost his life in an accident at the age of 22 in 1960.
Hoggard is the latest recipient of the award, won in recent years by George Russell, Will Palmer, Lando Norris and Tom Gamble, all former contenders in BRDC F4 or BRDC British F3. The trophy was presented by BRDC Vice President Derek Warwick at the ceremony hosted by television presenter Jake Humphrey.
The 19-year-old was named as the latest winner of the Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Award on Sunday evening, impressing the panel of judges with his performances at the wheel of MSV F2, Ligier LMP3 and Aston Martin GT3 cars during a two day assessment at Silverstone.
Hoggard finished second overall in BRDC British F3 in 2019, behind champion Clement Novalak, who was also recognised at the BRDC Awards ceremony. Novalak was unable to attend the event, but his manager Glen Gower received the Jim Clark Trophy on his behalf, awarded each year to the winner of the BRDC British F3 Championship.
