Motorsport Event of the Year
Oct 12 2018
Club members attended the awards dinner on the 25th of October. When the awards were announced, it was Le Mans Classic that received the accolade. On this occasion we were not successful but few participants would begrudge Le Mans Classic taking the honours.
Our historic Trike race meeting at Brooklands on 29th November 2017 has been shortlisted for Motorsport Event of the Year at the international Historic Motoring Awards. The dinner and ceremony will be held in London on Thursday 25th October at the Sheraton Grand Park Lane Hotel.
Two years ago, DDBUK was awarded Club of the Year when the proceedings were held at Guildhall, against stiff international competition. This time the competition is even greater with some of the world's most prestigious events being our direct competitors. This is the list of nominees for 2018:
MOTORSPORT EVENT OF THE YEAR - FINALISTS
Goodwood Festival of Speed
Les Grandes Heures Automobiles
Lime Rock Historic Grand Prix
Zoute Grand Prix
Le Mans Classic
120th Anniversary of the First British Motor Races
Those members who joined us last time will know that whatever the result on the night, it is a wonderful evening where the elite of the world of historic motoring gather together at the end of the season. This is therefore your opportunity to help us make up a table (10) to represent the Club. It is a Black Tie event for members and their other halves. For a complete table tickets are £240 each - expensive but right on the money for what is on offer including champagne reception, the dinner and awards evening in a top West End venue. If you would like to attend this unique occasion to help represent the Club (and our unique Trike Racing Team Jarrott), please email me back with your ticket request.
