An evening with Dick Bennetts

June 16, 2022

We are delighted to welcome to Brooklands Museum the legendary team boss of West Surrey Racing, Dick Bennetts, whose Formula 3 drivers have included Ayrton Senna, Mika Hakkinen, Eddie Irvine, Rubens Barrichello and Jonathan Palmer.

WSR bowed out of F3 at the end of 1995 as the most successful team in the history of the series, both in terms of race victories and titles. From 1996 the team has concentrated on the British Touring Car Championship, with drivers including Nigel Mansell, Tom Kristensen, Andy Priaulx and multiple BTCC champion Colin Turkington. In total nine WSR drivers have won an FIA World Championship, while past and present racers have accounted for over 1500 Formula 1 starts, 18 Le Mans 24 Hours wins, two Indycar titles and 36 wins, an Indianapolis 500 victory and over 200 BTCC successes. WSR continues to run the BMW manufacturer assisted team in BTCC in 2022.

With a wealth of anecdotes from more than 30 years in top level motorsport, Dick will be in conversation with Harry Sherrard.

This event will be in person in the Clubhouse and broadcast on BM.tv Livestream

The Members' Bar will be open from 6pm and hot food will be available.
