About Mark Blundell
A debutant within the BTCC this year as he makes his return to elite level motor racing, former Formula One star Mark Blundell will be one of the series’ main attractions this year and the 53-year-old is braced for an entirely new challenge.
After progressing his way through the junior ranks, Mark enjoyed a distinguished career at the very top of the sport. 61 starts in Formula One brought multiple podium finishes whilst racing for the likes of McLaren, Brabham, Ligier and Tyrrell across a golden era for the sport. Alongside his Formula One duties, Mark enjoyed immense sportscar success most notably taking a memorable pole position at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1990 before taking the outright victory in 1992.
Mark also became one of the very first British drivers to enjoy a great deal of success in the United States, taking on the very best that IndyCar had to offer enjoying multiple wins along the way.
Stepping away from elite racing, Mark was a part of ITV’s BAFTA-award winning Formula One coverage from 2003 to 2008 and has established himself as one of Europe’s most recognised motorsport managers through his role as CEO of market-leading sports management group, MB Partners.
