The Segrave Trophy is awarded to the British national who accomplishes the most outstanding demonstration of the possibilities of transport by land, sea, air, or water. The trophy is named in honour of Sir Henry Segrave, and has been awarded in most years since 1930.

A subsidiary award, the Segrave Medal, may also be given. Additionally, the Segrave Certificate of Achievement may be awarded to a person who is not a British national, but would otherwise qualify for recognition.

The trophy is awarded by the Royal Automobile Club. Past sponsors include Aston Martin.
