British Racing Drivers' Club
Silverstone Heritage Ltd would like to thank the British Racing Drivers’ Club for gifting the land used to build The Silverstone Experience and inspire the next generation of engineers and drivers.
The Club was inaugurated in 1928 and currently has just over 850 Members. It is home to the most successful racing drivers from Great Britain and the Commonwealth. Membership is for those who have met the exacting entry criteria having achieved success at the highest levels of the sport, or made a significant contribution to enable others to do so. The list of Members, past and present, reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of motor sport.
The Club takes it responsibility as ‘guardians of British motor sport’ very seriously and has run Silverstone circuit since 1952. It is responsible for developing it from a former RAF Airfield to the only current FIA Grade 1 circuit in the country. The BRDC has also for many years fostered young driver talent, supporting the junior careers of Britain’s current top drivers through its Rising Stars and SuperStars programmes and the McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award
