Nominate your 2015 McLaren AUTOSPORT BRDC Award finalists

The Award, which began in 1989, aims to find the best up-and-coming British racing talent.

McLaren-Honda racer and 2009 Formula 1 world champion Jenson Button is a former winner, as is DTM ace Paul di Resta, his rivals Gary Paffett and Jamie Green, and three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti.

Eligible drivers for this year's prize must have been at least 16 years old and under 22 years old on March 1 2015, and a British Citizen.

They must have competed in a single-seater championship up to and including non-FIA Formula 3 and not in any higher category during the current calendar year.

Prizes for the 2015 McLaren AUTOSPORT BRDC Award winner include a McLaren F1 test, £100,000 and full BRDC membership.

To nominate a driver, please email maba.nominations@autosport.com with your suggestion, using the subject line 'nominations', by midday September 25.

Nominations will then be considered by the judging panel, chaired by 1992 world sportscar champion, ex-Formula 1 driver and BRDC president Derek Warwick and comprising double British Touring Car champion Jason Plato, 2005 British GT champion and former Award winner Andrew Kirkaldy, McLaren's Mark Williams, leading commentator Ian Titchmarsh, Motorsport News editor Kevin Turner and AUTOSPORT features editor Scott Mitchell.

The six finalists will be announced early next month, and undergo fitness and simulator assessments ahead of the Award tests at Silverstone.
