Professional MotorSport World Expo Awards 2016 shortlist announced

24.10.2016: The shortlist for this year’s Professional MotorSport World Expo awards has been unveiled

The shortlist for this year’s Professional MotorSport World Expo awards has been unveiled, with leading race teams and OEMs recognised for outstanding performances and game-changing technologies.



The winners will be unveiled at Professional MotorSport World Expo, Cologne, on 9 November.




Chairman of the judging panel and Professional Motorsport World magazine editor, John O’Brien, said
: “2016 has been another fantastic year for motorsport, with fantastic racing and sportsmanship seen across all tiers of motorsport, across the globe. 



“The quality and professionalism of teams and drivers has been outstanding, making the shortlist very difficult to compose. The continued refinement of ‘greener’ powertrains and technologies is fascinating to witness, with the amazing developments teams have made and the performance they have extracted testament to the investment in these technologies.



“The need for technologies to be relevant to road cars has never been more apparent, so to see manufacturers and OEMs throw themselves into environmentally friendly development at all levels of motorsport is highly encouraging and exciting. I’m looking forward to the 2017 season already.”
