TW Steel watches sponsor Autosport Awards

First published: 11-12-2009

TW Steel proudly partnered the prestigious Autosport Awards on Sunday night (December 6th) in London, with Dean Smith winning the 2009 McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award.

As its second consecutive year as Official Watch Partner to the ceremony, a TW Steel watch was given to the 21-year-old Englishman who won this season's Formula Renault UK Championship, alongside a cheque for £50,000 and a McLaren F1 test drive in the near future for his elite abilities.

Three British Formula One world champions were on hand to present him with his TW Steel watch: 2009 winner Jenson Button, last year's victor Lewis Hamilton and the 1996 leading light Damon Hill.

The Great Room of the Grosvenor House Hotel in London was the venue of this year's Autosport Awards, with Jenson Button receiving a pair of awards as well as a standing ovation from the packed room when he entered.

Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button are to be teammates in next season's McLaren team, following the movement of Button after the purchase of Brawn GP by Mercedes.
