FAIRUZ FAUZY ELECTED TO BE PART OF BRITISH RACING DRIVERS CLUB
A1 Team Malaysia driver, Fairuz Fauzy, has been given the special honour of being elected to the elite British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC). His on track success has earned him the recognition necessary to become part of this exclusive club. Fauzy is now a Full Member of the BRDC, an entitlement only open to racing drivers. He joins a select group, including current motor racing stars Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, as well as former racing personalities, such as Formula One World Champion, Damon Hill, who is also the Club President.
Fauzy has bases in Malaysia and the UK. He is only a stone’s throw away from the BRDC Clubhouse when he is at his UK home. The BRDC headquarter is located close to the Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire.
Fairuz commented, “It is an honour to be a member of such a prestigious and elite organisation. The BRDC is a unique motor racing club, which only top racing drivers are invited to join. I am very proud to have been elected as a member and to represent such a historic club. I am really looking forward to taking my family and friends into the Clubhouse to watch the races and to be involved with the club and its important activities in motor racing.”
The BRDC membership is only available to racing drivers who are born within the UK or a Commonwealth country, and the entry criteria to the Club remain very strict with Full Membership offered only to those who have attained international success over a number of seasons.
Jack Cunningham, Chief Executive, A1 Team Malaysia adds, “We offer Fairuz our warmest congratulations on his election to the British Racing Drivers Club. We are delighted that Fairuz’s success with A1 Team Malaysia has helped him to achieve the strict entry requirements. He joins Alex Yoong as one of the few Commonwealth drivers in the Club and with both drivers having driven for A1 Team Malaysia, we are delighted with this news.”
