Club facts

The Bentley Drivers Club has held its annual raceday at Silverstone every year since 1949, and this year’s event will be the 73nd consecutive – making it one of the longest running events in the British club motorsport calendar.

1.  The Bentley Drivers Club was instrumental in the running of the first British Grand Prix in 1948.  The event was organised by the Royal Automobile Club whose President wrote to the BDC Chairman to ask if the club could help run the event – 150 club members helped with car parking, marshalling, scoreboard and scrutineering duties.

2. In 1957, the BDC officially opened the new LC McKenzie scrutineering bay at Silverstone, which it had funded.

3. During the lunch break of the BDC meeting, there will be a traditional track parade involving over 100 Bentleys built between 1921-2020.

4. The Bentley Handicap race will start from the pit lane.
