Williams Advanced Engineering win MIA award

Following a two-year hiatus, the Motorsport Industry Association  presented its annual Business Excellence Awards in association with AP Racing, at the NEC Birmingham.

The MIA Business Excellence Awards were presented by Pat Symonds, Chief Technical Officer of Formula One and they recognised achievements and success at all levels from within the world-leading motorsport and high performance engineering industry.

Chris Aylett, CEO of the MIA, said “Congratulations to all our 2021 winners, during an extremely difficult couple of years you have set an exceptional standard for our industry to follow. You richly deserve this recognition from your peers, perhaps the toughest judges of all. 2022 is full of new opportunities and challenges which demand a level of excellence which I am confident our world-class motorsport industry will achieve.”

Oxfordshire-based Williams Advanced Engineering won Business of the Year 2021 in the category for ‘Businesses With Sales Over 5m’.

The award was given for the work that the company does in the Motorsport sector, specifically for “delivering cutting edge solutions for electric motorsport series covering Formula E, Extreme E, ETCR and LMDh; deploying technologies from racetrack to road and beyond”.

Thatcham-based Xtrac won the Export Achievement Award while another Oxfordshire-based business, Reaction Engines, won the Technology and Innovation Award.
