The Race Media Awards recognise creative excellence, genuine impact and global influence.
They are open to all classes of motorsport across the board, on two wheels and four. Whether you’re an agency with some big-hitting clients, a commercial rights holder that is transforming the image of their sport or a team that has taken an innovative approach to building a new fan base, The Race Media Awards are for you.
An independent panel of judges review all entries and a shortlist is then announced for each category and celebrated for their efforts.
