We’ve just received news that Red Bull Racing driver Mark Webber will be the recipient of the Sir Jack Brabham Award from the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS) “in recognition of his outstanding contribution to Australian motorsport”.
Nominees for this award "must demonstrate “the talent and determination of the candidate as well as detailing a significant level of success in international competition.”
Previous award recipients have included IndyCar driver Will Power and NASCAR driver Marcos Ambrose.
Way to go, Mark!
