Carlin paid handed BRDC awards

British F3 champion Daniel Ricciardo and Carlin team-mate Max Chilton secure top BRDC awards
Carlin duo Daniel Ricciardo and Max Chilton were both honoured by the British Racing Drivers Club following the annual BRDC Awards ceremony in London.

Ricciardo, who won the title in his debut season, picked up both the John Cooper Trophy and the new Henry Surtees Trophy while team-mate Chilton secured the Spencer Charrington Trophy.

The John Cooper Trophy was handed to Ricciardo for being the F3 driver to have shown potential to be a future F1 title winner while the Henry Surtees Trophy was given to the Australian for outstanding performance by a rising star.

“It was an honour to receive the Henry Surtees trophy, but I accepted it with sadness,” Ricciardo said. “I was very touched to be the first person to ever receive this award in the memory of Henry, who will be sorely missed and had close links with Carlin.

“Winning the John Cooper Award was a great feeling and Christian Horner said some nice things when he presented it to me as well, which was quite humbling. It's been a fantastic year and one that I will look back on very fondly in the future.”

Team-mate Chilton meanwhile was awarded the Spencer Charrington Trophy for being the highest placed British driver in the British F3 International Series.

“It was a real honour to receive a BRDC trophy,” said Chilton. “It's quite an exclusive thing and there aren't many of them, so I was very proud to be up there. It was a small room with a lot of big names, so I was really happy to receive a trophy in front of some of the most important people in the industry.”
