Aford Award Supplies the Official Trophies for the British Grand Prix for the Second Time

The British Grand Prix, one of the most anticipated motorsport events of the year is this Sunday the 8th of July at the iconic Silverstone Circuit. 

Aford Awards supplied trophies for the British Grand Prix back in 2016, which saw England’s very own Lewis Hamilton lift the trophy. 

Aford Awards are honoured to be supplying trophies for the thrilling motorsport event again this year – it will be the second time the family-run business have been given the contract to create and supply trophies for the event. 

Jon Ford, Managing Director of Aford Awards, said: “It’s great that we were asked to design and manufacture the awards again this year. 

“We supplied them for the first time two years ago but unfortunately missed out in 2017.

“This time around our design team put in extra effort and came up with incredible designs for F1 to select from.

“A lot of award companies submitted their designs, so it makes us feel very proud that we were picked. 

“Unlike other sporting events F1 have very strict guidelines on design, they have to be a specific height and weight.  

“The weight limit always surprises me as in my opinion the trophy should feel really heavy, but I suspect due to health and safety and the driver holding them up high on the podium, the weight has to be under 5kg.”
