The BWRDC are thrilled to organise a Support Race to the Walter Hayes Trophy once again in 2018.
Following the success of the 2017 Ladies Race, the BWRDC have been invited back to Silverstone on Sunday 4th November to organise a ladies only race , alongside the HSCC. The club invites members and non-members (on payment of a day membership) to join us for a social yet competitive event.
Silverstone Circuits were delighted to include us once again on the prestigious timetable.
This race gives us the opportunity to showcase the wide variety of cars we drive and of course our driving ability; and whilst enjoying ourselves, demonstrate to other women that this is something they really can do too!
Entries are available now through the Silverstone website. And, if you need any more convincing here are some comments from last year’s event:
