Johnny Herbert returns to racing in Masters series

2 May 2019

Johnny Herbert is to return to racing by getting behind the wheel of an Ensign to race at the Masters Support Race to Formula 1 Rolex British Grand Prix in July.

The three-time Grand Prix winner will drive the Ensign N180B at the race taking place at Silverstone in July.

The car, owned by former Force India deputy team principal and current McLaren Indy president Bob Fernley, raced in F1 between 1981 and 1982 before Jim Crawford drove it with sportscar bodywork at the USA CanAm series in 1983. It has been in storage since and now has been restored and returned to the specification in which Crawford raced it in the British F1 series, in a red, white and blue livery with R.K. Textiles logos.

Herbert began his racing career 1985, where he won the prestigious Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch before moving to F1 in 1989 where he raced with Team Benetton. He has not raced since 2010, where he was back on the top step of the podium in the Superstars International Series, driving a Chevrolet Lumina to victory at Kyalami.
