Autosport Awards: Paffett and Di Resta nominated
For the British motor-sport it will be the greatest night in the year – the Autospord Awards ceremony. On second December, 2018, the majority of the British motor racers will make the trip to the Grosvenor House Hotel in London to attend the annual award presentation in nine categories and enjoy a glamorous evening. DTM Champion Gary Paffett and Paul Di Resta, third in the 2018 DTM Championship ranking, are two of the six nominated in the category ‘British Competition Driver of the Year’. The nominees in this category are British drivers who raced successfully in international motor racing.
The rivals of the two DTM aces, however, are renowned: first of all F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton. In 2017, the five-time champion already was bestowed the award for the fifth time. The other nominees are Formula E driver Sam Bird, former F1 World Champion Jenson Button – today a Super GT star – and Formula 2 driver George Russell. By the way: five-time World Rally Champion Sébastien Ogier, who contested the Austrian DTM meeting held at Spielberg as guest driver, is nominated in the ‘Rally Driver of the Year’ category.
