The risk of serious injury, or even death, always looms over motorsport and all drivers hope they’ll never be among the unlucky few to experience it. Unfortunately for Johnny Herbert, he wasn’t so lucky when he stared death in the face during a horror accident in 1988. But, the charismatic and captivating former driver’s traumatic experience did not hold him back, making him one of the most inspirational motorsport speakers around. 

In total, Johnny spent over a decade racing in the pinnacle of motorsport, competing on the Formula 1 grid for the likes of Benetton, Lotus, Sauber and more. However, this dream was almost over before it even began when in 1988 he suffered career-threatening injuries in a crash at Brands Hatch. At one stage, Johnny was even told his foot may need to be amputated, which would have called a premature end to his racing career. When booked as a motorsport speaker, he can call on this terrible experience rousing audiences to see what is possible if you don’t give up. 

Mental resilience is a huge part of motorsport, and Johnny has this in abundance. Just a year after his accident, he scored points on his Formula 1 debut in Brazil and in total he won three Grand Prix during his time. This includes victory in the 1995 British Grand Prix and listening to him explain the pride he felt passing the chequered flag to win his home race is an experience to savour. 

During his career, Johnny raced alongside a whole host of legendary figures including Michael Schumacher, Damon Hill, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna. Not many motorsport speakers can boast of sharing the grid with such greats, but at your event you could see Johnny discuss who he views as the best of all time while casting his eyes over Formula 1 in the modern era.

Since retiring in 2000, he’s become well-known as a regular contributor on Sky Sports F1 providing his expertise on the sport and all the stories surrounding it.
