Name the most successful British racing drivers of the past three decades. Nigel Mansell, Lewis Hamilton, Dario Franchitti, Damon Hill, Jenson Button, Martin Brundle, Dan Wheldon and Derek Warwick probably spring to mind.
But one that might not is Mark Blundell. You can argue that, unlike those named, he never won an international championship, but his CV still includes victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours (backed up by podium finishes in two of sportscar racing's other blue-riband events, Sebring and Daytona), three Indycar wins at a time when CART was in its pomp and three Formula 1 podium finishes.
By anyone's standards, that's impressive. Doubly so for a Barnet-born motocrosser whose career could so easily have sunk without trace after prodigious early success in Formula Ford.
