Triple Le Mans winner Allan McNish is to deliver the Motorsport Safety Fund’s 2015 Watkins Lecture.

The 44 year-old Scot, who began racing karts when he was 11, was an F1 test driver for McLaren, Benetton, Toyota and Renault, for whom he raced in 2001.

He won the UK Vauxhall Lotus Championship in 1988 and came second in the British F3 championship the following year. He also raced for Audi in the DTM, but is best known as a sports car driver.

In addition to his Le Mans victories, as a GT1 Porsche driver in 1998, driving the LMP1 Audi R10 in 2008 and the LMP1 Audi R19 e-tron quattro in 2013, Allan won the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2013.

Allan is also a three times ALMS champion, has served as an FIA F1 Driver Steward and is an F1 commentator and pundit for the BBC.

Motorsport Safety Fund chairman Dr Ian Roberts, said:” Allan McNish’s long career in motorsport, together with his experience of the dangers and as a Driver Steward, make him an ideal choice for the lecture in honour of Prof Watkins, who contributed so much to improving the safety of motorsport.”

The lecture will take place at Autosport International at the NEC, in Birmingham at 11.15am on Friday 9th January 2015.
