Wayne Boyd Celebrates Milestone Year at Prestigious Autosport Awards

This year's British Formula Ford Champion and BRDC Superstar Wayne Boyd celebrated a milestone year in his racing career with a night amongst the stars of motor sport at the prestigious Autosport Awards ceremony in London on Sunday night (7 December). Boyd, who is only 18 years old, was one of six finalists for the McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year award, which was set up in 1989 to recognise and reward the talents of up-and- coming racing drivers. Boyd is now working with his management team on finding a competitive seat in next year's British Formula 3 Championship.

"I have really enjoyed testing with all the leading Formula 3 teams, but it is now crunch time. We need to decide what will be the best move, as we want to be fully prepared for the season ahead. Next year will be a high profile year in the British F3 Championship, so we need to secure the most competitive drive possible. I'll be aiming to take the fight to the field from the start of the season."

Ulsterman Boyd, from Templepatrick, won this year's British Formula Ford Championship and the annual Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch in October, just days before his 18th birthday.
