The British Women Racing Drivers Club (BWRDC) is a membership body which represents the interests of professional women racing drivers from the United Kingdom.[1] The BWRDC celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2012.[1] It holds its own awards and championships based on its members performances. The awards are given at an annual ceremony. [2]

The BWRDC was founded in 1962 by Mary Wheeler, with 30 members. Women were not allowed to join the British Racing Drivers' Club until 1992.[3] In 2012 the BWRDC had 160 members.[3]
