The British Racing Drivers’ Club is, arguably, the most exclusive club in motor racing. With a membership that numbers only 850, it is home to the most successful racing drivers from Great Britain and the Commonwealth. Those who have met the exacting entry criteria have achieved at the highest levels of the sport, or made a significant contribution to enable others to do so.

Membership of the BRDC is highly sought after and extremely difficult to achieve. The list of Members, past and present, reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of motor sport. The Club’s current President is David Coulthard MBE whose distinguished motor racing career includes 15 seasons of Formula One between 1994 and 2008, taking 13 Grand Prix victories and 62 podium finishes. He was runner-up in the 2001 championship, driving for McLaren. Coulthard returned to racing as an active driver in the DTM series in 2010, piloting a 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class for Mücke Motorsport and more recently a well respected presenter, commentator and journalist.

 

Currently the Club runs two young driver schemes: the Superstars and Rising Stars. Through these complementary programmes the BRDC aims to assist the very best British and Commonwealth drivers achieve their goal of success in top level motor sport whilst also ensuring there is a strong and enthusiastic flow of new members to the Club.
