Many congratulations to journalist Ian Wagstaff for winning the Mercedes-Benz Award for the Montagu of Beaulieu Trophy at the Guild of Motoring Writers 2012 awards.

It was his biography of Trust member Tony Robinson, Stirling Moss’s mechanic in the 1950s, which scooped the celebrated writer the prestigious award, given to the Guild Member judged to have made the greatest contribution to recording, in the English language, the history of motoring or motorcycling in a published book.

An excerpt of the book can be found in the Mechanics’ Tales section of the site and the book is available from Veloce Publishing.

Congratulations to both Ian and Tony.
