Bernie was born and raised in South Elmham, near Bungay, Suffolk, in an average British family. His first salary job started at the young age of 16 when he left school to work at a chemical laboratory.
He later switched career path, trading spare parts for motorcycle. With his love for the racing world, at one point, he also tried his shot at being a racer but was not that successful in the field.

The founding of the association adjusted the distribution of TV rights revenue. 47% would go to the teams while 30% and 23% would be distributed to the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile) and the FOPA, respectively.
