The Collection

The British Racing Drivers' Club has been at the heart of Silverstone, charting every win, race and decision over an exhilarating history of British motor sport, resulting in an extensive Library and Archive.

The BRDC Library and Archive has been key to The Silverstone Experience project. For the first time we’re able to use its unique collections to tell the whole Silverstone story.

Our modern Collections and Research Centre will provide better access to the archive and ensure that it’s preserved for future generations.

Unpacking the Archive


The BRDC collection is a vast treasure trove that spans Silverstone’s rich history. Its gems include photographs, books, race programmes, journals and driver signing on sheets.


Our ongoing digitisation programme means we’re making our collections available to new audiences. We’re also ensuring that we protect this important archive for many years to come.


Silverstone's history is nothing without the people behind it. The project has enabled us to record the stories of everyone involved in this historic motor racing circuit.
