Long time Manx Grand Prix Official, Dr. David Stevens MBE has recently been awarded two unique honours within Motor Sport - being invited to become an Officiel d’Honneur of the Motor Sports Association and being presented with a Recognition Certificate, from the world governing body, the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), celebrating his contribution to motor sport safety in the medical field.
