UK-based race track design firm Driven International has been awarded the prestigious Queen's Award in recognition of its work in Britain and worldwide.
The Hampshire-based company was established in 2014 and was responsible for designing the World Rallycross layout at Silverstone, which utilises the Formula 1 British Grand Prix venue's Stowe circuit.
Driven International also carried out improvement works to the Goodwood circuit, used for the events such as the Revival and Members' Meeting.
The firm - which has a close association with ex-F1 driver Karun Chandhok - also undertook the master planning of the Oro Station test circuit near Toronto, Canada, and penned the yet-to-be constructed Lebanon International Autodrome.
An FIA Grade 3 circuit in Hawaii is the company's latest project.
The Queen's Award was set up in 1965, with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II officially approving recipients following recommendation from the British Prime Minister, and is seen as the highest honour in UK business.
Commenting on Driven International's award in the International Trade category, managing director Ben Wilshire said: "It is a privilege and honour to have been recognised at the highest level by Her Majesty The Queen, and an award that I am incredibly proud of.
"Winning this award reflects the hard work and commitment by our entire team and I would like to thank everyone who has supported the company over the past five years and made this achievement possible."
Driven International is twice the recipient of the Inspire International Business of the Year aware, claiming the honour in 2017 and 2018.
