GORDON MURRAY AWARDED CBE IN HONOURS LIST
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.”
