Following the award of the Seagrave Trophy to Allan McNish earlier in the week the Royal Automobile Club today awarded his 2013 World championship winning team mates Tom Kristensen, Loïc Duval & Team Principal Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich Segrave Medals.
The Segrave Trophy is awarded to the British national who accomplishes the most outstanding demonstration of the possibilities of transport by land, sea, air, or water. The trophy is named in honour of Sir Henry Segrave and has been awarded in most years since 1930.
However, as the remainder of McNish’s team mates were non-British nationals the RAC wanted a way to recognise the overall team effort achieved under the guidance of Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich; in one year winning the Le Mans 24 Hours, the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), and the Tourist Trophy at Silverstone last season. As such, three special Segrave medals were minted for the occasion.
