OPEN AWARDS

Lord Wakefield Challenge Trophy
From 1920 this was the Women’s Automobile Sports Associated award for 2 annual trials, although other events were taken into account, such as finishing the Monte, or performances in Hillclimbs. During the war it remained in the hands of the last winner, Mrs H Wood. In 1973 she presented it to the BWRDC. The Trophy is currently housed at MSA HQ. It is awarded to a woman for outstanding performances or services to motorsport.
