Former F1 driver and Sky Sports F1 presenter Martin Brundle is the latest name to be added to the Autosport International 2013 guest list.
Brundle spent twelve years in Formula 1, racing for teams such as Tyrrell, Zakspeed, Brabham, Benetton, Ligier and McLaren, as well as taking victory in the 1990 Le Mans 24 Hours with Jaguar.
In 1997, Brundle made the transition to the commentary box alongside Murray Walker, becoming one of the world’s most popular sports broadcasters. Now working for Sky Sports F1, he is now most well known for his infamous grid walk, interviewing everyone from drivers to celebrities moments before the parade lap.
“Autosport International is really at the heart of what’s great about British motorsport, covering every level of the sport, from karting to Formula One,” said Brundle, who will share his views on all things F1 at Autosport International, as well as signing his new book, the Martin Brundle Scrapbook. “It’s always a great way to start the new motorsport season and catch up with everyone, and there’ll be plenty to talk about as we look ahead to the introduction of the new F1 season.”
Brundle joins John Surtees, the only man to have won World Championships on both two and four wheels, on the Autosport International 2014 guestlist with many more guests to be announced before the show opens its doors in 100 days.
“As the countdown until Autosport International 2014 hits double figures, we’re thrilled to announce Martin Brundle as a guest,” said Ian France, Autosport International Show Director. “Martin offers unmatched insight into the world of Formula One and I’m sure everyone is looking forward to hearing not only about his life in motorsport, but also his predictions for the 2014 F1 season.”
Autosport International will take place at the NEC in Birmingham from January 9-12 and will see Brundle and Surtees joined by machinery spanning Formula One, touring cars and rallying in the Live Action Arena and a variety of interactive elements.
