Benjafield’s Racing Club is about preserving the historic spirit, and sportsmanship of British motor sport.
Its members campaign important historic cars, including; 1904 De Dion Bouton in the Brighton Run, Vintage Bentleys, Bugattis, Frazer Nashes, Austin Healeys, C & D type Jaguars, McLaren M1s,GT 40s, Chevron B8s, as well as single seater Lotuses and Coopers, through to Group C Porsches and the latest Aston Martins.
The roots of the club are in the tradition of the Bentley Boys, that hard living, partying, group of sportsmen, that made the vintage Bentley the most successful marque at Brooklands and made Le Mans special to the British public by winning it 5 times between 1924 and 1930, in one of the world’s greatest supercars, the Bentley. Benjafield members drive many great marques but the Vintage Bentley built between 1920 and 1931 is at the heart of the club.
Benjafield members, regularly race at Classic Le Mans, Silverstone, Nurburgring, Goodwood, and participate in competitive rallies around Europe, and have driven, vintage Bentleys across Russia, India, Sweden, California, and from London to Turkey, Peking to Paris, and London to Cape Town.
Taking its cue from the original Bentley Boys, Benjafield’s Racing Club is about camaraderie, on the track, in the pits, and at our glamorous black tie events, that have been held at Hatfield House, the Tower of London and Hampton Court, and of course the highlight of the season, the annual awards dinner.
