MCT wins coveted business award

21/01/2010 - Menard Competition Technologies, (MCT) one of the world's leading motorsport and advanced automotive organisations, is celebrating this week after winning the Motorsport Industry Association's (MIA) highly coveted Technology and Innovation Award.

Fighting off strong opposition from companies such as Williams Hybrid Power and Millers Oils, MCT was presented with the MIA Business Excellence accolade, at the NEC in Birmingham, on 14th January, for its outstanding design and engineering work undertaken on the Superleague V12 racing engine.

Subject to a strict judging process and decided by a panel of industry experts, the MIA Business Excellence Awards recognise outstanding work within the motorsport and high performance engineering industries.

Kevin Lee, MCT's managing director, commented: "All of us at MCT are thrilled with our success at this year's awards. To be awarded this honour by a panel of our peers is truly gratifying. The whole team back at Leafield continues to deliver reliable, innovative and high-performance products and this award is vindication of their hard work. We have an exciting year ahead of us; the Superleague championship has been extended to 12 rounds and the Bloodhound SSC land speed record project continues to gather pace as engine testing continues. This has been a great way in which to start the year and further demonstrates MCT's passion and commitment to being one of the world's leading motorsport and high performance engineering organisations".

Superleague Formula's Competitions Director, Robin Webb, added: "Congratulations to everyone at MCT for this prestigious award. The whole team at Leafield has worked tirelessly with us over the last few years to engineer an instantly recognisable product and this is just reward for their endeavor. The V12 engines are certainly one of the championship's calling cards and we're delighted that they will be powering Superleague again in 2010 as we enter our third season".

The only awards of their kind within the industry, the MIA Business Excellence awards are presented at the industry association's annual Autosport Show dinner. The event attracts over 500 people from across the world of motorsport and is the largest and most prestigious gathering of the year for all involved in the business of UK motorsport.
