Motorsport News journalist Matt James was full of praise in his comments regarding Nick Tandy's appointment as a Vice President of the Club at the Championship Awards dinner this past Saturday night, where he also received the coveted John Nicol Trophy (shown above with Club Chairman Bernard Cottrell).
In a piece written for and featured in this week's MN, James mentions Tandy's wish to give something back to the sport which he has committed so much to over the years. His commitment was rewarded with the John Nicol Trophy alongside his achievements in winning the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2015 as well as completing a fantastic drive in treacherous conditions to win the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta in America overall in a GT car.
Matt's article reads as follows:
It was also announced by the BRSCC chairman Bernard Cottrell on Saturday night that Tandy had accepted the offer of becoming an honourary vice president of the club.
I can’t think of anyone more suitable for the job. Not only does Nick have a top-flight career for Porsche that has taken him to the very pinnacle of the sport with that victory at Le Mans, he also has a keen eye on the younger generation through his role heading up the JTR MSA Formula team.
There’s not a lot that escapes his attention on the nursery slopes. He knows the drivers, understands how the sport works, knows what is required to run a title-winning team and also has the knowledge that he has gained from years behind the wheel – all the way back to racing in Ministox when he was a much younger man.
