User Rating: / 0
Brawn team principal Ross Brawn has been presented with the Motorsport Industry Associations (MIA) Award for the Most Outstanding Contribution to the Motorsport Industry. Brawn collected the honour at the MIA's annual summer reception at Britain's House of Lords on Monday night.

He joins a highly impressive list of previous winners, which includes Formula One luminaries such as Professor Sid Watkins, Frank Williams, Stirling Moss, Jackie Stewart and Bernie Ecclestone. Brawn started as a milling machine operator at the March team and during a 33-year career in motorsport has won eight championships with Benetton and Ferrari.

“His exceptional race engineering talent is coupled with integrity, sincerity and humility - a rare combination in this aggressive competitive sport,” said MIA CEO, Chris Aylett. “His personal contribution has benefited many in this global industry - employees, suppliers and drivers. His influence makes motorsport and F1 a better place to be.

"Ross is a great inspiration to young engineers who we need to help us improve our future. As patron of Formula Student for example he is putting something back into tomorrows generation. F1 leaders can be great ambassadors for global motorsport - Ross is one of the new breed who will ensure its popularity will last well into the future.”

The award was presented by The Right Honourable Lord Drayson, Britain's Minister of State for Innovation, who is also a keen racer. The 2009 reception was attended by over 300 guests, including Ministers of State, Ambassadors, VIPs, MIA members and leaders from the motorsport industry.
