With all the attributes to forge a career of excellence in motor racing and in recognition of their strong performances and potential to succeed throughout 2020 and beyond, seven new drivers have been recruited to the British Racing Drivers' Club's prestigious Rising Star Scheme.

All of the drivers were successful in the completion of their interviews at the BRDC Clubhouse on Tuesday 21 January and the Club would like to welcome the following drivers to the Club, including details of the 2019 championship campaigns that have earned them their place as a BRDC Rising Star:

Tom Canning – British GT Championship (GT4)
James Hedley – Ginetta Junior Championship
Harry King – Ginetta GT4 Supercup
Scott McKenna – Ginetta GT5 Challenge Championship
Josh Smith – British GT Championship (GT4)
Ben Tuck – VLN Championship and Nurburgring 24 Hours
Daniel Zelos – MINI Challenge JCW Championship

Aged 24 and under, the BRDC Rising Stars are very much the future of the Club, today. Scouted from trackside, the BRDC Rising Stars are in effect ‘Junior Members’ of the Club, all taking their motor racing very seriously and all aiming for a professional career within the sport. From all four-wheel racing disciplines, the Rising Stars represent the BRDC in a wide variety of championships worldwide, and from the races contested while wearing the scheme's unique ‘blue roundel’ it is hoped the Rising Star will graduate to the ranks of Full membership.
