The Awards background
The World Motorsport Symposium awards were first introduced in 2005 when Ulrich Baretzky and the late Dino Toso walked away from the inaugural Symposium as winners of the two prestigious awards that recognised their talent in the motorsport world. Baretzky won the race engine designer of the year trophy for his work on the Audi V8 engine that took its sixth successive victory in the Le Mans 24 hour race that year as well as its sixth American Le Mans series manufactures title. Toso won the racecar Aerodynamicist prize for leading his team at Renault in a year that saw the R24 score eight race victories and secure for the team the Formula One Drivers and Construction World Championships.
The following year the Most Innovative New Motorsport Product award was introduced and awarded to Deutsch UK for it's groundbreaking double density connectors.
Since then these three awards have continued to grow in their importance and prestige having been awarded to the likes of Adrian Newey, former Chief Technology Officer of Redbull Racing, Andy Cowell, Managing Director of Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrain and companies such Performance Friction, Millers Oils, Bosch Motorsport and Flybrid Systems for their Most Innovative products, who have all felt honoured to receive them.
