The Women’s Motor Racing Associates Club, famed as The Doghouse Owners’ Club, is proud to support this year’s Beaujolais Run, which is held in aid of the Henry Surtees Foundation, one of the Club’s chosen charities for 2014.

Former BRM and Williams Grand Prix driver, BRDC Vice President and honouree Doghouse Member, Howden Ganley explains: “As the BRDC is the Who’s Who of British Motorsport, so The Doghouse Club is the equivalent on the other side of the gender fence, with many famous names still involved and with many so well connected within motorsport circles.”
