Goodwood FOS to show Schumacher 1992 Benetton

The Benetton B191B driven by Michael Schumacher during the 1992 Formula One Season will be amongst the cars on display at this weekends Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex.

Schumacher secured his maiden podium finish in this car at the 1992 Mexican Grand Prix and followed that up with a second podium at the Brazilian Grand Prix later that year.

The car was initially driven by Nelson Piquet in his final Grand Prix in Australia in 1991, and also by Martin Brundle in his debut for the team in South Africa 1992 before it switched over to Schumacher.

The car is now owned by Zak Brown, who is the founder and CEO of Just Marketing International (JMI), the world’s largest motorsport marketing agency. The B191B is prepared by United Autosports, who enter the ex-F1 Benetton car in historic races around the world.

“The Schumacher car is a great car and I’m glad we can bring it to Goodwood for the Festival of Speed,” said Brown. “It’s such an amazing event, with a fantastic atmosphere so to be part of it with one of my cars is very special.”
