De­sign leg­end Pro­fes­sor Gor­don Mur­ray was recog­nised with a CBE for his ‘ser­vice to Mo­tor­ing’ over a re­mark­able 50-year ca­reer in the Queen’s New Year Hon­ours list.

South African-born Mur­ray is one of the most suc­cess­ful de­sign­ers in For­mula 1 his­tory. He is cred­ited with cham­pi­onship-win­ning For­mula 1 cars for Brab­ham and Mclaren, and headed up Mclaren Cars, cre­at­ing the sem­i­nal F1 su­per­car that won Le Mans in 1995. He formed his own ve­hi­cle de­sign con­sul­tancy in 2005.

Mur­ray said: “It is ex­tremely hum­bling to re­ceive a CBE in the Queen’s New Year Hon­ours. I’ve spent more than 50 years do­ing what I love, work­ing with a wealth of highly tal­ented and cre­ative peo­ple around the world, but pri­mar­ily in the UK.

“From com­pet­ing dur­ing the hey­day of

For­mula 1, to de­sign­ing the world’s fastest su­per­car, I’ve loved ev­ery minute. I’d like to ded­i­cate this hon­our to all those I’ve worked with over the years and I look for­ward to an ex­cit­ing new fu­ture for the Gor­don Mur­ray Group.”
