Mark Blundell (born 8 April 1966, London) is a former Formula One, sports car and CART racing driver. Mark began racing motocross bikes across England aged 14 where he gained immediate success, eventually becoming one of the top-ranked riders in Britain. At the age of 17 he made the switch to Formula Ford where again he was rewarded with instant success.

The following year, Mark won both the Esso British and Snetterton FF1600 crowns, and winning the BBC Grandstand series a year later.
In the late 1980’s Blundell moved to international racing, joining Formula 3000, where he showed incredible talent, including a number of race wins. 1987 meant a switch to the works Lola team in F3000, at that time one of the biggest teams in the series.
By 1990, Blundell had abandoned F3000 to concentrate on sports cars. That same year, he set a new lap record and earned pole position at the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours race - the youngest driver ever to do so. The year 1991 marked the biggest step forward in Blundell's racing career - his Formula One debut. His debut season saw a sixth place in Belgium with the Brabham Yamaha team. The following season he signed a testing deal with McLaren, whilst continuing to race sports cars. That year, with Peugeot, he won the Le Mans 24 Hours, adding to his earlier pole.
1993 saw the return of Blundell, where two podium finishes saw him finishing tenth in the World Championships. He later returned to McLaren, where once again he took tenth place. Since 2004, Mark has concentrated more and more on his TV career. He is now known as a Formula One presenter for ITV.
