Mike Wilds

January 19, 2023

In January 2023 Brooklands welcomes an FIA world champion – Mike Wilds, who won the 1986 Group C2 World Sportscar Championship with Ecurie Ecosse. Mike began racing in 1965 and has competed in a vast array of machinery, including Formula 3, Formula 5000, Le Mans prototypes, GTs and Touring Cars, driving for works teams and collecting 12 British Championships along the way.

In the early 1970s Mike reached Formula 1, securing a works BRM drive, before famously being sacked by the team’s mercurial owner, Louis Stanley, for impugning  the BRM engine! Mike, who is one of Britain’s most popular racers, will share with us a wealth of anecdotes from his incredible 50 + year motorsport career.

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.
