2020 Autosport Awards to be held online

The annual extravaganza has been one of the highlights of the year for nearly four decades and attracts key motorsport figures, including Formula 1 champions and World Rally stars.

Due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the Awards night cannot take place at its traditional venue, Grosvenor House hotel on Park Lane, but the key awards will still be voted for and announced across multiple digital platforms, including autosport.com.

Nominees for International Racing Driver of the Year presented by Pirelli, British Competition Driver of the Year, UK National Driver of the Year, Moment of the Year presented by Marelli, Rider of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Racing Car of the Year, International Rally Driver of the Year and Rally Car of the Year will be announced in stages, starting on 17 November.

A new award, the Esports Driver of the Year, has also be added in recognition of this growing branch of motorsport, which has experienced a boost during this most extraordinary of years.

Autosport.com subscribers will be able to vote online for the candidate they think performed best in each category during the season. The winners will then be announced in December, again across multiple digital platforms, as well as Autosport magazine, which is celebrating its 70th birthday in 2020. Full details on how to vote will be provided once live on autoport.com.

The Pioneering and Innovation Award will be selected by a panel of Autosport experts and the winner will be announced along with the victors from the public vote.

Planning is already under way for the 2021 Autosport Awards, taking place once again as a physical event scheduled for 12 December, with some exciting new features.

Head to awardsvoting.autosport.com to register your vote on the best of motorsport in 2020.
