A debutant within the BTCC last year, former Formula One star Mark Blundell returns to the series in a new role for 2020 helping to form the latest name to line grid - MB Motorsport. In his new role of Sporting Director, Mark and his team hope to bring a fresh approach to matters both on and off the track this season.
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.
