39 year-old dad of six, Brian Lee from Manchester, has won the 2012 insurethebox driver of the year competition at the Rockingham Race Track in Northamptonshire, the fastest in Europe.

London, 3 October 2012 – Brian Lee was chosen as one of twenty finalists from the insurer’s 100,000 customers, based on their motoring record.

A team of judges from the race track assessed the finalists during tests for wet weather motoring, driving a V8 touring car, an Abarth 500, a Ferrari, an Aston Martin and an open wheel single-seater.

Brian said: “The day has been so much fun and I have loved every minute of it, to win this award has made the experience all the more memorable. I loved the experience of the Ferrari and what I really liked about the whole experience was that the emphasis was on safety rather than speed“.

Other winners include:

  • Kirsty Chappel from Oldham won the Ferrari challenge.
  • Jonathon Kerins from Chelmsford won the V8 Supercar challenge.
  • Phillip Cooper came top in the wet grip section.
  • Daniel Birik came top in the Abarth 500 section.
  • Daniel Robbins scooped top place in the Aston Martin section.

“The day was our way of recognising customers who have driven outstandingly well and have a bit of fun, at the same time as promoting the benefits of safe motoring. Brian has shown exceptional driving skills as a well as a responsible approach to driving whilst insured by us,” said Mark Shepherd of insurethebox
