About Nicola Foulston
Foulston is the former owner of the Brands Hatch motor racing circuit. Her father John, who founded the Atlantic Computers leasing operation, was killed in 1987 while testing a racing car, his great passion.
He also owned circuits, including Brands Hatch. A year after his death, the sale of Atlantic netted £29m for his family trusts. His daughter took over running the racing circuits and led a management buyout of the business in 1995 for £15.5m.
Four years later the Brands Hatch Leisure business was sold for £120m, netting Foulston, 43, £35m. She then left for Switzerland, where she leads a quiet, low-key life.
