Tiff Needell

Tiff is a former Grand Prix driver and World Sportscar Championship veteran who made his Formula One debut at the Belgian Grand Prix in 1980 and from fourteen Le Mans 24 Hours starts had the best result of third in 1990.

In a fairytale start, he began his racing career by winning a Formula Ford Lotus 69F in an Autosport Magazine competition and then gradually rose through the single-seater ranks to earn his place on the Grand Prix grid.

He also raced Touring Cars, GT cars and even survived two outings in the British round of the World Rally Championship. Nowadays he still races whenever an opportunity arises and always looks forward to driving at the end-of-season Goodwood Revival Meeting.

Tiff Nededell has become a familiar face on television having presented mainly car programmes for over 25 years. Firstly on BBC’s Top Gear from 1987 and then Fifth Gear, with Vicki Butler Henderson which moved from Channel 5 to the Discovery Channel.

He is an in-demand host and MC for all types of automotive event.
