Brian Redman to headline Race Retro
Sports car legend Brian Redman will headline Race Retro 2018, when the International Historic Motor Show opens its doors in February
Brian Redman, winner of the 1970 Targa Florio and multiple winner of the Daytona 24 Hours, Nürburgring 1000Kms and Spa 1000Kms, will star at Race Retro on February 23-25.
Having shunned a career in Formula 1, which lasted 12 races after a highest finish of third, Redman gravitated towards sports car racing with a 1970 win at the Daytona 24 Hours and the Targa Florio. He repeated the Daytona 24 Hours win in '76, but not before stints in F1, Le Mans and Can-Am.
He ran Redman-Bright Engineering in Formula 3000 during 1997 and 1998 and is now a promoter of historic events from his home in Florida.
Race Retro, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of ground-effect cars (including the title-winning Lotus 79 and Williams FW07) will give visitors a taste of the Hall of Fame awards, which take place in June.
