The Master Wheelwright's Award

In 2000, the Company created a high profile Award that may be granted to an individual or team of individuals who meet the following criteria:

  • being wheelchair users have attained pre-eminence in their field of endeavour and made a significant contribution to society, or who
     
  • have excelled in a wheeled sport including, but not limited to, motor racing, motorcycle racing, cycle racing, carriage driving or the attainment of a land speed record, or
     
  • have made a significant contribution to the development or provision of mobility or access for disabled people utilising the wheel or other technical advancements in the UK or overseas, or
     
  • are involved in industries, which use or rely upon the wheel and have achieved technological advances in design and manufacture of wheels or tyres or otherwise have shown innovation and commitment to the provision of mobility or access for disabled people

Although nominated candidates are reviewed annually by the Master and his committee, due to the demanding criteria, the award may not be necessarily awarded on an annual basis.
