The BARC becomes the first British motorsport venue operator to achieve FIA Environmental Excellence. A significant statement in UK motorsport.

Driven International, based in Station Road, Hook, was awarded the gong for the second year in a row, after helping to deliver services in France, Poland, Bahamas, the USA, Taiwan, India, Pakistan, Nigeria and Australia over the past year.

Driven International is no stranger to the awards, collecting the same prize at the ceremony in 2017.

Collecting the award with his team, projects director at Driven International, Ramzi Darghouth, said: “It feels amazing to win, especially for the second year in a row.

“We’re really grateful for the way that we have grown in the past 12 months, and I’m thrilled with how we have been developing and we are hoping to continue to grow in the future.”

The company works for land developers, governments, and venue owners to provide feasibility, masterplans and RIBA architectural design services. They mostly focus on the sports and leisure sector, with a focus on motorsport destinations, and have designed many different race tracks and sports arenas.

Ramzi added: “We get involved with all different aspects of the process of motorsport venues, acting as a design consultant, but also taking part elsewhere in the production process.

“We are looking to continue our growth and explore new areas as a part of that growth.”
