British Racing Drivers' Club President Derek Warwick has offered his congratulations after no less than five members of the club were victorious at prestigious international racing events last weekend.

Sunday saw the world's two highest profile races, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500 – and both races were won by BRDC members. Australian Mark Webber scored his second Formula 1 win around the streets of the Principality, while Scotland's Dario Franchitti became a three-time winner of the Indy 500.

Webber's victory came after three other successes for BRDC members in Monte Carlo earlier in the weekend. On Saturday Jolyon Palmer scored his maiden GP2 win, and on Sunday fellow BRDC SuperStars scheme participant Sam Bird followed that up with victory from pole position in the Formula Renault 3.5 race that preceded the Grand Prix. Just prior to that, Monaco-based Brit Sean Edwards won the Porsche Supercup encounter.

“I'd like to offer my congratulations to Mark and Dario for two remarkable wins that puts them both in the history books of our sport,” said Warwick.

“I'd also like to say how impressed I am with BRDC SuperStars Jolyon and Sam, along with Sean they all deserve huge credit for winning extremely competitive races on the most demanding of circuits. 

We can all be very proud of what these five, fine ambassadors for our sport have achieved.”
