HRH THE PRINCE PHILIP, DUKE OF EDINBURGH KG KT

Members of the British Racing Drivers' Club join the nation in mourning the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh KG KT.  In 1952 on the BRDC’s Silver Jubilee, Prince Philip graciously accepted the role of  President in Chief in succession to the late Duke of Kent who had lost his life during World War Two. Prince Philip always took a keen interest in the Club’s affairs, attending the 21st Anniversary Dinner in 1948, the Daily Express BRDC International Trophy in 1950 and opening the new Silverstone Pits in 1975 amongst other events. He also contributed very informed and pertinent Forewords to the Club’s Silver and Golden Jubilee books. After 42 years, Prince Philip stood down and was succeeded by the current President in Chief HRH The Duke of Kent KG. He became one of the BRDC’s oldest Members, retaining a keen interest in the Club’s activities and in Silverstone. His support of the Club for this long period will be remembered with affection, gratitude and respect.

The Club regrets to report the death of Martin Thomas, who was elected as a BRDC Member in 1995
Silverstone is delighted to confirm that the Formula 1 British Grand Prix has been included in the latest phase of the UK Government’s Event Research Programme (ERP)
The BRDC awards Honorary Membership to six times FIM World Superbike Champion Jonathan Rea
