Jonathan Palmer - Motorsport Maestro

Jonathan Palmer, founder and Chief Executive of PalmerSport, first developed a passion for motorsport in the early 70s as a spectator. It wasn't long before he became involved himself, racing an Austin Healey Sprite whilst studying at Guy's Medical School.

What started as a weekend hobby quickly became something far more serious as he progressed successfully from Formula Ford through F3 and then winning the European F2 championship. Jonathan made his F1 debut in 1983 with Williams and enjoyed seven years of Grand Prix racing whilst also competing in sports cars, finishing second at Le Mans in 1985.

When he retired from full-time driving in 1991 he focused on a new ambition: to create the best corporate driving event in the world. More than 20 years later PalmerSport has come a long way, yet its hallmark - giving guests unprecedented levels of freedom and encouragement to drive fabulous performance cars faster than they ever thought possible - remains as powerful as ever.
