Known for his exploits in Formula One and Le Mans racing, Johnny Herbert began his racing career in the mid-1980s.

In 1988, Johnny was a hopeful championship contender for the International Formula 3000 championship, however a horrific collision with barriers at Brands Hatch saw him badly break his legs and count him out from racing until 1989.
Drawing upon a huge amount of courage, Johnny returned to racing in 1989 despite the fact outside the car he could barely walk. Johnny Herbert was now racing in Formula One for the Benetton Team managed by friend Peter Collins and went on to score points on his racing return at the Brazilian Grand Prix. Johnny’s miraculous journey to overcome the adversity of injury and gain the drive and determination to return to the sport make him one of the most highly sought after motorsport speakers.

In all, Johnny featured on the podium seven times, with two victories in 1995 and one in 1999. After retiring from Formula One in 2000, Johnny switched his focus to sports car racing in an attempt to recreate his 1991 Le Mans 24 Hours victory with the legendary Mazda 787B.
