Bellm lands BRDC role

Ray Bellm is the new chairman of the BRDC. He will succeed Martin Brundle on January 1.

A successful businessman, Bellm has an extensive racing background: he won the Group C2 world title twice during the 1980s, and the Global GT series in '96. He has now switched his focus to the British historic rally series.

"Ray has the right combination of skills and experience to continue our mission to be champions of British motorsport," said BRDC president Sir Jackie Stewart.
