UNPRECEDENTED NUMBER OF NOMINATIONS FOR BRAWN GP IN PROFESSIONAL MOTORSPORT WORLD EXPO 2009 AWARDS

Professional MotorSport World Expo, central Europe's leading trade-only motorsport exhibition, today reveals the nominees for its strongly contended 2009 awards. Brawn GP are in the running for an impressive triple award haul, already having won the accolade of first team ever to have been nominated in both the Design Engineer of the Year and Team Principal of the Year categories. The awards will be presented at a Gala Dinner on Tuesday 3 November 2009 in the presence of over 700 motorsport professionals at the Kolnmesse in Koln (Cologne), Germany.

Graham Heeps, Editor of Professional Motorsport World Magazine and Chairman of the judging panel, says: "The awards have become established as one of the industry's leading annual events that gives deserved recognition to exceptional personal and technological achievement in motorpsort. This year we are excited to see the emergence of Brawn GP as a new force to be reckoned with, and regardless of the ultimate winners, Brawn has clearly achieved what many would have deemed impossible during 2009.
