McLaren deep-sixes the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award
McLaren will cease to be a part of the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award from this year.
Zak Brown, CEO, McLaren Racing
"McLaren is enormously proud to have partnered with the British Racing Drivers’ Club and Autosport on the first 30 years of this prestigious award.
"Its inauguration in 1989 was ground-breaking in the industry, and provided a spotlight for a great number of undiscovered talents at the grassroots of British motorsport. Thanks to the support and opportunities this award has afforded its winners over its 30-year history, many of these drivers have gone on to become household names and achieve the highest accolade in their respective fields: world champion.
"We now entrust the award’s impressive legacy to a new patron, and wish everyone involved well in its next iteration to support the brightest young British stars in motorsport."
