Membership of the British Racing Drivers’ Club is highly sought after and offered only to those who have achieved success at the highest levels of motor sport.

Membership is split into the following categories:

Life:
Any paid up Member who has been a Full Member for twenty years may apply to the Directors for Life Membership.
The Directors may grant Life Membership to such Member at a fee which in their absolute discretion they shall prescribe.
