The Autosport Awards, which takes place at Grosvenor House on Park Lane this weekend, is continuing its long-standing support of the Grand Prix Trust, which is the benevolent fund
of the industry.

The Trust is chaired by former F1 driver and Sky Sports F1 commentator Martin Brundle. It helps put people's lives back on track if they fall on hard times after leaving the industry or require medical help.

As in previous years, the fundraising will be by means of a silent auction, which includes an array of unique experiences, many donated by F1 teams and by F1 itself.

These include a day at the British GP, paddock passes for European F1 races, and group factory tours courtesy of a host of F1 teams.

Some of the items available:

Mercedes F1 – factory tour for four people plus exclusive Heritage Facility visit
Meet the team and see the design, development, manufacturing and assembly processes.

McLaren Racing – European F1 race weekend for two
