Lotus on Track Racing Drivers Club UK Awards

Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 10:30
On Saturday 1st March LoTRDC held their annual UK awards night at Brands Hatch.

After another well-attended pre-season trackday, drivers and teams headed to the MotorSport Vision Centre’s Stirling Suite for the awards dinner. Presentations were made by Martin Donnelly and new LoTRDC TV presenter Kiri Bloore. Donnelly was then joined by guest of honour, fellow Team Lotus alumni and winner of the British Grand Prix and the Le Mans 24 Hour race, Johnny Herbert. The pair reflected on their racing careers and enduring friendship, providing plenty of laughter to draw proceedings to a conclusion.
