Mark Blundell is a British racing driver who competed in Formula One for four seasons racing for the likes of McLaren, Brabham, Ligier and Tyrrell across a golden era for the sport.

He garnered a reputation as one of the most successful endurance racers around and enjoyed immense success. Most notably taking that famous pole position at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1990 – which is still considered the most memorable laps at the historic French circuit. It was two years later when he could celebrate outright victory, sharing the car with Yannick Dalmas & Derek Warwick.

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. It was during this time that he was named Autosport’s British Driver of the Year in 1997.

He was a Formula One presenter for ITV from 2001 until the end of the 2008 season.

A keen businessman, Mark realised that with his experience, knowledge and connections, it was time to start a new chapter in his life and launch MB Partners – an athlete management and sports marketing agency, built around his core values in sport.

In 2019, teaming up with HP and Intel Mark returned to the track taking on the highest form of domestic motorsport competing in the KwikFit British Touring Car Championship.
