How the Award winner is chosen

On Sunday night, the winner of the 2014 McLaren AUTOSPORT BRDC Award will be revealed. SCOTT MITCHELL describes the science behind the evaluation process

Autosport Awards

The Autosport Awards are a series of awards presented by motor racing magazine Autosport to drivers that have achieved significant milestones each season. Some of the presentations are selected by the general public via a reader's poll.

How do you choose the best up-and-coming British driver? That's the question at the heart of the McLaren AUTOSPORT BRDC Award process.

From start-to-finish, the system of selection is far more refined and analytical than it has ever been. Which means the judges - BRDC president and former world sportscar champion Derek Warwick, double British Touring Car champion Jason Plato, former Award winner turned McLaren GT ace Andrew Kirkaldy, McLaren head of vehicle engineering Mark Williams, leading circuit commentator Ian Titchmarsh and Motorsport News editor Kevin Turner - have more information than ever to select the winner.
