For an Outstanding Contribution to Motoring Innovation
The Royal Automobile Club Simms Medal is named after the Club’s founding member Frederick Simms and is awarded to recognise a genuine contribution to motoring innovation by individuals or small companies.
Like the Club’s other major award for British engineering, the Dewar Trophy, the Simms Medal is awarded only in the years when an example of sufficiently innovative automotive design and/or manufacture has taken place, rather than being an annual award. The Simms Medal is complimentary to the Dewar Trophy, and the two awards are made in a joint ceremony.
The Dewar Trophy Technical Committee is responsible for choosing the recipients of the Simms Medal. The Committee is composed of several automotive industry experts who meet regularly throughout the year to discuss candidates and submissions.
For those wishing to a nominate a potential candidate to the Committee, please email nominee name, and brief details to: firstname.lastname@example.org
