The BMCRC is pleased to announce that a change of Chairman was agreed at the Club’s recent AGM.
New to the post is existing Director, Jeremy Hill who is also responsible for overseeing the hugely successful Rider Development Programme at Bemsee.
Jeremy comments: “I have been a member of Bemsee for nearly twelve years as a racer and for the last four years have represented rider’s interests to the Club as an ordinary member and as a Director on the Management Board. As well as the Rider Development Director I am also responsible for being the main contact and support for all rookies within the Club.
I commute on a Yamaha Fazer 1000 every day to central London and work in the Banking industry within the IT Security arena. It’s one way to finance the fun on track! I play bad golf, compete in triathlons, am always happy and positive attitude is everything. I’ll talk bikes to anyone so come and have a chat, I’m always in the paddock or on the end of the phone or email.
Racing has been a great part of my life and I am looking forward to continuing work within Bemsee for the riders’ interests, development and mentoring. I am driven to help riders, as well as the racing community volunteers within the Club, achieve their racing connected dreams - I did, and I was very lucky to do so at Bemsee.
I am honored that my fellow directors supported my appointment within this great Club of ours and will continue to try and inspire the members to build on the wonderful “Bemsee Family” atmosphere we hold so dear in the paddock. Great racing, great friends and truly “Our club is its members and the members are the club”.”
Jeremy takes the reigns from Eddie Bellars who has been Chair since late 2007. Eddie has offered his resignation from the post in order to allow fresh blood to take the Club forwards. Eddie is one of the Club’s valued Clerks of the Course, a previous Board member at the ACU and is currently the Chair of the ACU Non-Territorial Board of which the Club is a member. He is also an FIM A-Grade Clerk. Eddie and his wife Norma together clocked up 50 years of service to the Club in 2013.
The Club recognizes his immense contribution over the last 50 years and for his continued service going forward. Eddie remains on the BMCRC Board and continues his role as Company Secretary.
