CWA’s motorsport team was awarded the Stephen Brown Memorial Trophy, an award that commemorates racing driver Stephen, by series coordinator Stuart Garland.

The award focuses on sporting excellence, positive attitude, sportsmanship and “going the extra mile” in the sport.

MSV Trackday Trophy also awarded the trophy to CWA because of the team’s commitment to the series, helping others and the work the college does in providing young people with opportunities in the motorsport industry.

JP Latham, lecturer and team manager, said: “We were very humbled to receive the award.

“Thanks go out to our drivers Chris and Andrew Tsang, all of our sponsors, the support of the College of West Anglia, MSV Trackday Trophy and of course all of our Institute of the Motor Industry motorsport students.”
