Cameraman Dave Stanford Presented With Honorary Membership of the GTC

When they learnt of SkyF1 cameraman Dave Stanford's selfless action in helping to rescue one of the Williams Formula One mechanics from the pit garage fire after the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix, the GTC Council decided that he should be given an award in recognition of his actions.
Honorary Membership of the GTC was presented to Dave on the afternoon of Thursday 19 July at the Hockenheimring motorsport race track in Baden-W├╝rttemberg. The presentation was made by Formula One commentator Martin Brundle in the presence of the Williams Chief Operations Engineer Mark Gillan and Rex Palmer from the GTC Council (who is also a Formula One cameraman).
The Williams garage was suddenly engulfed in flames following the Grand Prix at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya on 13 May. Dave Stanford selflessly dropped his camera to help mechanic Martin Betts out of harm's way. The incident is believed to have involved a kinetic energy recovery unit which sparked a fuel fire. Three of four injured Williams team members were among a total of seven people who required hospital treatment.
