Awarded to a Guild member in recognition of an outstanding contribution – not necessarily journalistic – to the cause of motoring. The winner is chosen by the Guild committee.

The trophy was created by journalist friends in memory of Major Harold Pemberton DSO, motoring correspondent of the Daily Express, as an award for holders of the Brooklands lap record. When no longer needed for that purpose it was donated to the Guild by the British Automobile Racing Club. The original trophy was stolen in 1983.
