Silverstone has launched their first ever Media Awards, searching for the fans' choice for the best F1 and Moto GP coverage in print and online.

Both major international series held their British rounds at the Northamptonshire track, with more than 450,000 people attending the two events combined.

The awards include categories for the best coverage in a national newspaper, best motorsport magazine and for the best websites, bloggers and tweeters from the two and four wheeled world. A special category seeks to find the best feature produced by the BBC's F1 team. Six features from six different weekends are shortlisted, including the team's tandem ride around Silverstone before the British Grand Prix.

You can cast your votes for the awards through Silverstone's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/SilverstoneCircuits. The voting closes at 12:00 noon on December 21.

All the fans who votes will be automatically entered into a prize draw for two hospitality places at the 2012 British Grand Prix, or the 2012 Moto GP British GP. Ten runners-up will receive a Silverstone goody bag.

And, of course, don’t forget to use your vote wisely and vote for The Checkered Flag!
