The first QSi awards will be hosted by C4’s face of motorsport Amanda Stretton
Amanda’s combination of beauty and brains has made her a TV natural. Back in 1998, she was spotted vigorously defending women drivers in a live TV debate. This led directly to Channel 4 choosing Amanda as their ‘face of motorsport’. She is renowned for her knowledge of contemporary and historical racing series and her understanding of the international car industry.
Amanda regularly fronted C4s coverage of the British Formula 3 and GT championships, while she also presented motorsport programmes on Sky and Eurosport, and a holiday programme for the Travel Channel. Amanda presented Channel 5’s ambitious Dream Machine series, in which classic cars were restored and has gone on to do 'Goodwood Revival' and ‘Goodwood Festival of Speed for ITV1, and 'Wrecks to Riches' for Discovery Home + Leisure. Amanda’s encyclopaedic knowledge of the subject, her undeniable skill behind the wheel and her charm in front of the camera have caught the attention of critics and viewers alike .
