1 Mins read

Damon Hill will stand down as president of the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) at its AGM on 25th August.

Throughout his five year presidency, Hill has overseen a successful period in the club’s history: securing the long-term future of the British Grand Prix; major developing both the circuit and facilities at Silverstone, and obtaining rights for Silverstone to hold the British rounds of the MotoGP and Superbike championships.

“It has been a great privilege and honour to serve as BRDC President since 2006,” said Hill, the 1996 F1 world champion. “As a Club and business, we can be immensely proud of everything we have achieved for British motor sport over the past few years.

“The BRDC and Silverstone face a stable and exciting future, so the timing is right for me to hand over the reins and devote more time to my family, my own interests, and the racing career of our son, Josh. However, I remain a committed Member of the BRDC and look forward to watching the Club go from strength to strength.”

The BRDC board has announced its unanimous support for existing Board Director Derek Warwick, who will stand as a candidate to be Hill’s successor as president.
