Students attend Autosport Awards

On Sunday 6th December students from the National College for Motorsport had the chance of a lifetime to attend the Autosport Awards. Voted for by Autosport readers, the awards held in London were attended by the stars of the most exciting sport in the world.

Seven students were given the opportunity to meet their heroes by the Grand Prix Trust who requested support in collecting donations made on the night from the sale of signed materials by Lewis Hamilton and a raffle.

Experienced tutors at the National College for Motorsport commented that they had been working in the industry for more than 40 years and had never had an opportunity like this so the students were even more grateful that they had the chance to rub shoulders with some of the greats in the sport.

Student, Owen Mills, was able to meet World Champion  John Surtees OBE, Carlos Sainz Jnr and Max Verstappen (Torro Rosso), Felipe Massa and Sky F1 commentator David Croft. Not a normal Sunday evening!
