IAM ROADSMART AMBASSADOR PADDY HOPKIRK TAKES ON TOP ROLE AT BRDC

0

IAM RoadSmart’s mature driver ambassador Paddy Hopkirk MBE has been elected to one of the highest profile roles in motorsport this month – President of the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC).

Paddy has been a member of the BRDC since 1965, and for the past 10 years has been the organisation’s Vice-President.

He is perhaps best known for winning World Championship rallies in Monto Carlo and Greece in the 1960s, but has competed in road and rally events all over the world including Bridgehampton and Sebring in the US and the Le Mans 24 Hours; achieving class wins.

Paddy has been mature driver ambassador for Britain’s biggest independent road safety charity IAM RoadSmart for the past two years, with the task of ensuring older people keep their safe motoring careers going as long as they are happy to continue with it.

He travels the length and breadth of the country promoting the charitable work of IAM RoadSmart; meeting with countless local groups affiliated with the charity as well as other key influencers in the car industry and beyond.

Paddy becomes BRDC President at a key time for British motorsports, with the future of the British Grand Prix currently under discussion.

Sarah Sillars, IAM RoadSmart Chief Executive Officer, said: “Paddy has proved to be an enthusiastic and hard-working ambassador for IAM RoadSmart for the past few years, so it comes as no surprise that the BRDC has elected him its new President.

“I have no doubt he will throw himself into the role 100% and we all wish him well in his new role and for British motorsport.”
