Brian Redman

Brian Redman

Brian Redman (A 50-53), was one of four motor racing greats to be inducted into the Motor Sport Hall of Fame during a star-studded awards ceremony at Woodcote Park, home of the Royal Automobile Club, last week.

More than 20,000 enthusiasts voted for their favourites and the other winners included Nigel Mansell in the ‘Formula 1’ category, Roger Penske in the ‘US Racing’ category and the late Barry Sheene in the ‘Motorcycle’ category.

Having turned down an offer from Ferrari to race Formula 1, Brian carved a successful career racing sports cars, taking part in a total of 358 races. He was victorious, outright or in his class, in 94 of them, and finished in the top three 177 times. His tally of classic long-distance victories includes the Targa Florio, Daytona 24 Hours (twice), Nürburgring 1000Km (twice) and Spa 1000Km (four times).
