The Sydney Allard Media Awards

In 2014 the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame (BDRHoF) announced the introduction of two new annual BDRHoF Awards that celebrate the role played by the media in our sport along with Sydney Allard as the Father of British Drag Racing. Sydney built Europe's first dragster in 1961 and organised the first visits by American racers in 1963, '64 and '65. The Sydney Allard Media Award follows a similar BDRHoF crystal tablet format presented to those being inducted into the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame.

For 2017, in addition to the established Sydney Allard Media Awards for Photography & Written Journalism, a new award has been introduced to cater for Videography  

Winners in 2014 were Nick Brooke Langham (Written Journalism) and Jon Spoard (Photographic Journalism)
