The Motorsport Safety Fund has confirmed that Adrian Newey, the Chief Technical Officer of Red Bull Racing, is to deliver the Fund’s "Watkins Lecture" on Friday 15th January at the Autosport Show. This popular annual event is named after Professor Sid Watkins – F1's safety pioneer – who made the very first presentation. The Lecture is very much a highlight of the Autosport International Show and is attended by some 500 delegates.

Adrian Newey will join a very prestigious list of previous speakers which includes the Professor himself, Sir Jackie Stewart, Max Mosley, Niki Lauda, David Richards, Martin Brundle, Ross Brawn, Bernie Ecclestone, Malcolm Wilson and Ron Dennis CBE. Tickets, which are free of charge, are now available by sending in an SAE to:
