The Motor Racing Legends Awards Dinner saw the magnificent Mountbatten Room at the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall packed to capacity on 27 January 2010, with all tickets sold out some weeks beforehand. The evening mixed good food and wine, informal banter among friends, and the serious business of announcing the winners of the prestigious trophies for the three Motor Racing Legends race series; as well as the winners of the many class awards.
