Recognition for motoring luminaries

The chairman of an RAC charity has won a top award at a prestigious dinner which celebrates exceptional contributions to Britain's motor industry.

Joe Greenwell won the Sue Brownson honour, which recognises outstanding leadership, at the Institute of the Motor Industry's (IMI) yearly gathering.

The RAC Foundation chairman's "outstanding commitment" in driving the sector forward was singled out by the IMI.

Mr Greenwell is also the Automotive Investment Organisation's CEO.

The foundation examines road-related issues concerning safety, the economy, the environment, and mobility.

A star-studded night saw celebrities such as Question of Sport captain and former rugby star Matt Dawson appear at London's Grand Connaught Rooms.

Bloodhound land speed project leader Richard Noble was also present, with Arnold Clark managing director Eddie Hawthorne and Lord March there as well.

The latter two were awarded IMI honorary fellowships on the night.
