Crush CANCER not Cars - Fund raiser
For those that don’t know our Class CC driver Russell Dack and 11 of his loony friends have planned a trip across Europe to raise money for cancer research
This will take place on the 8th of June
that’s easy right???????
Well..... they have 4 days from start to finish to complete a whopping 1,870 mile round trip taking them from England 🏴 to France 🇫🇷 to Germany 🇩🇪 to Switzerland 🇨🇭 to Italy 🇮🇹 then back home through 🇨🇭 to France 🇫🇷 then to the UK 🇬🇧
That’s not all........THE CARS 🚗
In true top gear style they only have £500 (of their own money) to buy a car with and again £500 (of their own money) to modify it how they choose, or in other words to build it so it gets there and back in one piece
There are 6 teams in total and the teams do not know what the other teams have brought and will remain a secret until the first morning of the trip
With 12 guys in total there will be A LOT of social media coverage via instagram and Facebook of the event itself
If your company or any organisation you are part of would like to donate as well we can put a logo or any advertisement you wish on the car
Please call russ on 07810891487 or email him on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange this, the cut of date for this will be the 6th of May!!!!
Cancer has effected everyone of us in some way or another
Please help us to raise as much money as possible to help do more research into getting cancer crushed

Russell and Tom’s team Name is GINGER NUTS and please gift aid where possible as this does boost the final amount at no expense to yourself

What can I say, another great season finished for another year, with a perfect conclusion with our new champion Kevin Denwood finishing off in style. 🏁🏆🏁
Congratulations also our 2017 Class Winners, James MacIntyre-Ure, Ollie Taylor, Paul Travers, Chris Cheverall, Gareth Montgomery & Giuseppe Callari, you all drove really well.
As you know our 30th year started off with a few challenges but has finished with the exciting prospects for next season. Hope to tell you more soon
As we do every year & the conversation we had over the weekend, we’ve asked you, the drivers, what you would like to see in the regulations for 2018 & what you have provided excites me. Thank you!
My team & I have received great deal of ideas, which we now need to go through & hopefully have a set of draft regs for you all soon. We are also looking at how we can provide cheaper racing for you, but we all know this sport isn’t cheap, but again we hope to have some exciting news soon. Oh by the way, if anyone would like to help with sponsorship for next season please let me know....
I would like to thank you ALL again for supporting the BMWRDC Championship & hope you, your families & support teams have enjoyed yourselves this season too.
I would like to thank my team for hard work throughout the season, my brother Carl, son in law Paul, daughter Nicola, my granddaughter Maddie, nephew James & his wife Lynda & the new addition Logan. I would like to thank our Sponsors Kumho Tyres, Hills Motors, Prepnlay, Kraftwerk Tools, RSV Graphics, Cabinets Uk & TMJ Interiors, for their support this season too. The photographers who have supplied us with awesome photos this season, Absolute Cc Photography, BS Photography, G Frank Fotos. And not forgetting our Eligibility Scruitneer Jeff Nixon & driving standard advisor Kevin Plant. Without you all, we couldn’t have such a successful Championship over the past 30 years.
Thank you & see you next season

MINI RACING IN THE BMWRDC CHAMPIONSHIP
We have our first BMW MINI racing in the BMWRDC Championship this weekend at the last rounds of the 2017 Championship. We welcome Simon Khera with his BMW MINI Gen 2 racing on Kumho Tyres.
Silverstone Final Rounds
So we are 4 days away from finding out who will be Crowned our 2017 Overall Champion and Class CC Champion. The Overall Championship will be between current 2016 Champion, Russell Dack, his team mate Kevin Denwood who leading by 17 points and 1 point behind is the 2017 Class A1 Champion Ollie Taylor. It's certainly not a foregone conclusion….. Watch this space for the updates from Silverstone this weekend.
We wish all our drivers well for the coming last race of the 2017 season, thank you as ever for your support to this Championship…..enjoy & be safe!!

I want to clarify the Championship's position as certain rumours are circulating at the moment that the BMW Racing Drivers Club will cease to exist in 2018. This is incorrect.
We are currently in liaison, as we usually are at this time of year, with Sponsors, Clubs, and race professionals in order to organise the 2018 Championship season.
We are aware that there is a new series being set up, this is not the only one. We are also aware that there are other Championships that BMW's are included in. None of this makes any difference to us. We are carrying on as we have done for the last 30 years.
We wish all Series and Championships out there the best for 2018. We understand that Motorsport is expensive and we are trying everything in our power to keep costs down & getting the best for our drivers, and we hope that you will continue to support the BMW Racing Drivers Club.
As soon as we have any more information regarding our 2018 Championship, we will let you know.
Again, thank you for supporting the Championship.
