And Mallock Honoured
Mike Newton and Ray Mallock have both been awarded with the prestigious
BRDC (British Racing Drivers Club) Awards for their achievements
in international motorsport. Mike Newton was awarded the ERA Club
Trophy with Ray Mallock, RML’s Chief Executive, collecting
the Nigel Moores Trophy.
The ceremony took place at the BRDC Clubhouse at Silverstone on
December 4, and the awards were presented by Damon Hill.
The ERA Club Trophy is awarded to the British Driver, who, driving
a British car, established the most meritorious performance of the
year outside the UK. Newton’s achievement was his second successive
win in LMP2 at Le Mans, this year with Tommy Erdos and Andy Wallace,
last year with Erdos and Warren Hughes.
The Nigel Moores Trophy is awarded to the private entrant who has
established the most meritorious performance in international motor
racing. Ray Mallock’s teams took that LMP2 win at Le Mans,
along with two World Touring Car Championship wins. However the
award was in recognition for this year’s Le Mans win.
"It is a great honour to receive the Nigel Moores trophy from
the BRDC in recognition of my company's achievements in winning
LMP2 at Le Mans for the second time in 2006,” said Ray Mallock.
“It is a huge challenge for a private entrant to win at Le
Mans and to win it twice in consecutive years is a great achievement
for all those involved. However, one of my key challenges remains
to win Le Mans outright."
