BRSCC APPOINTS PAUL MCERLEAN AS NEW RACE OPERATIONS & GENERAL MANAGER
The British Racing & Sports Car Club chairman Peter Daly is delighted to announce the appointment of Paul McErlean as Race Operations & General Manager for the club and its activities, effective from November 21st, 2019.
Paul has a long history of involvement with UK club motorsport across many sectors, which spans over 25 years starting in the early 90’s.
Always a keen competitor, Paul has enjoyed several class and the occasional outright win during this time across a variety of formulae categories, as well as participating in 24hr team endurance racing.
In addition to being responsible for the design and delivery of successful UK club formulae such as the BMW Compact Cup Championship, Paul has also played an integral role in the development and support of a number of existing series outside of the BRSCC portfolio in his consultancy role.
For the last 2 years Paul has worked closely with the club as a consultant taking the lead role on a number of successful set projects, including the club’s new website and communications platform, delivery of the new BRSCC ClubSport Trophy mini-endurance series, the reinvigoration of this year’s Formula Ford Festival and the upcoming changes to the Porsche Championship for the 2020 season to name a few.
All of this means that Paul is well equipped to step forward and take on the new Race Operations & General Manager role, ensuring a positive and exciting outlook for the BRSCC going forwards into 2020 and beyond.
Speaking of his new appointment, McErlean said: “Whilst this is a huge step in responsibility for me, it does feel a very natural and progressive step forward with the club, and to have the ability to become much more involved with our members and co-ordinators to help develop formulae is what excites me most. The enthusiasm from Liz and the rest of the HQ team, along with the support of the board makes for an exciting future.”
BRSCC chairman Peter Daly also spoke positively of the development, stating “Paul has been a valuable part of the club’s infrastructure since he began his consultancy role two years ago. In that time, he has proven that he is a knowledgeable, driven, innovative and forward-thinking individual, all qualities that the BRSCC feel are crucial to maintain its place as one of the driving forces in British club motorsport. I am thoroughly delighted that Paul has agreed to step forward into the Race Operations & General Manager role ahead of the 2020 season and given his proven track record within the industry, I’m confident that his leadership of our HQ team will yield superb results. I, along with my fellow board and Club members, are very excited to move forwards.”
