Motorsport UK Marshal, Nadine Lewis, presents Perez with British Grand Prix P2 trophy
Nadine Lewis, a Motorsport UK Marshal and Chair of the British Motorsport Marshals Club, presented Sergio Perez with his P2 trophy after a scintillating FORMULA 1 LENOVO BRITISH GRAND PRIX 2022.
Race winner Carlos Sainz received the Royal Automobile Club Trophy, the perpetual trophy awarded to the British Grand Prix winner, by FIA President, Mohammed Ben Sulayem.
Nadine Dorries, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport presented the first placed trophy to Sainz and David Richards CBE, Motorsport UK Chair, presented Sir Lewis Hamilton with the P3 trophy.
Lewis, the experienced Marshal took on the honour in representation of all the marshals who volunteer their time for the benefit of motorsport.
On the moment, Lewis commented, “It was a really humbling experience, to be perfectly honest. This is just fantastic recognition for the volunteers who work so hard in all weathers – Silverstone has chucked a lot at us this weekend and we do it because we all love motorsport.
“It as a positive that the volunteers are being recognised because they are so important to motorsport. Without them it wouldn’t function. And everything they do, even if it’s just turning up for a day at Oulton Park or Donington or it’s for F1, then every day that they do matters.”
Lewis has volunteered and dedicated her time to marshalling at motorsport circuits in the UK since 1997.
She commenced her training in 1997 and quickly moved up the ranks as a member of the British Motorsport Marshals Club (BMMC). In 2004 she became a licenced Incident Officer and in 2009 she was announced as the MSA’s (now Motorsport UK) Marshal of the Year, an award that recognises excellence by a volunteer marshal from any discipline of motor sport.
In 2016 she became a Post Chief and an Examining Post Chief in 2022.
In 2016 she was appointed as the first female Chair of the BMMC and is active in encouraging new volunteers, ensuring talent is nurtured and the interests of other motorsport organisations are embraced.
With over 2,300 members in Kart, Race, Rally and Speed disciplines the BMMC has been at the forefront of marshalling in the UK.
As a qualified Motorsport UK trainer Nadine delivers training annually to new recruits and is also active in recruiting new members in terms of their membership, skills and knowledge.
Alongside her work at the circuit, Nadine is actively involved within the committee structure of Motorsport UK.
She has held numerous voluntary positions within the organisation and started her journey in 2010 as a member of the Marshals Working Group, a role she held through to 2016.
In 2016 she was appointed to Motorsport UK’s Race Committee and as Chair of the Marshals Advisory Group Chair, two roles she continues to hold to date.
From 2016 to 2021 she was a Volunteer Officials Advisory Panel Member.
Nadine’s involvement in Motorsport expanded in 2021 as she became a member of Motorsport UK’s Women in Motorsport Sub-committee. Her involvement grew further in 2022 as she was appointed to Motorsport UK’s Council, Chair of the Volunteer Officials Committee and a member of the Rules Committee.
