The Race Media founder and CEO Darren Cox, said: “In only its second year, The Race Media Awards has established itself as the reference for excellence for Marketing and PR in Motorsport. The size and quality of entries this year were truly astonishing, and the Brands on the shortlist are a testament to that.
“The event itself is also becoming a ‘must attend’ for senior industry figures, especially those in Marketing and PR, and the atmosphere is as we imagined it – informal and with an edge. This is definitely not your usual awards event! I’m looking forward to next year’s event already.”
The Race would like to thank everyone involved for making it such a brilliant event, in particular, the judges: Allan McNish, Louise Beckett, and Rollo Goldstaub; Laura Coppin and Sophie Rogers for their amazing organisational skills; Oliver Card for his superb artist vision and Luke Hinsull and Benjy Lewis for their top-notch video editing skills and finally the staff at IET for helping to make the event run smoothly.
