Former Grand Prix driver and BBC commentator Martin
Brundle will be entertaining the crowds at Autosport
International, held at the NEC Birmingham on 14-17
January 2010, by sharing stories of life behind the scenes
in the world’s most glamorous sport.
Martin’s illustrious Formula One driving and television
careers span 26 years and over 400 Grands Prix. He has
driven for many legendary teams, including Jordan, Williams,
Benetton, and McLaren, racing against such greats as
Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher. He was also
victorious with Jaguar at the Le Mans and Daytona
24-hour races on his way to a World Sportscar title.
In 1997, he moved alongside motorsport legend Murray
Walker, co-commentating to tens of millions of
English-speaking F1 fans around the world.
Martin will be joined at the show by his racing son Alex,
who has been making his mark in the sport. While his
father will recount his 2009 season from the world of F1,
Alex – who has benefited from his father’s hands-on
management – will share his experiences from his first
season in Formula Two, which returned to action this year.
“I had a great time at Autosport International in ’09,” said
“There’s something for everyone and I’m looking forward
to returning in 2010, as I have always thoroughly enjoyed
the ever-improving show over the years. Alex stepped-up
to the significant challenge of his first season in F2, and
the show will provide a great opportunity for him to meet
Autosport International Show Director Ian France added:
“We are thrilled to be able to welcome Martin back to the
show. He is extremely popular with Formula One fans and
I am sure he will have plenty of stories from the paddock
Show-goers will get the chance to see Alex get behind the
wheel in the Live Action Arena during the weekend. Also in
attendance will be 2009 Formula One World Champion
Jenson Button, former F1 racer Allan McNish, and all the
cars from the 2009 World Championship on the F1 Racing
