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.”

John Surtees OBE, who in 2010 became the first patron of The Beaujolais Run, will flag off the hundreds of vehicles at 12 noon on Sunday 17 November from the Royal Automobile Club, Woodcote Park, Epsom in Surrey. Read More »

Mrs McLaren Brickett thanked everyone and said: “I feel very proud to be a Patron. I was one of the earliest members, a founding vice president and a longterm Chairman and I am delighted to see the club is still flourishing.” Read More »
