Benetton – Rebels of Formula 1

March 14, 2024

Unconventional and controversial, in the 1990s the Benetton Formula 1 team rose through the ranks to challenge the big names of Williams, Ferrari and McLaren.  After black flags, disqualifications, a pitlane inferno and political manoeuvring, the tumultuous 1994 season ended with Michael Schumacher sealing the World Championship title for Benetton, after a controversial clash with Damon Hill in the season finale in Australia. Our speaker is Damien Smith, former editor of MotorSport magazine and author of the new and authoritative history of this most colourful of Formula 1 teams. Damien will be joined by senior Benetton engineer Pat Symonds and other former team personnel. Signed copies of Damien’s book, published by EVRO, will be available.

This event will be in person in the Clubhouse and broadcast on BM.tv Livestream

The Members' Bar will be open from 6pm and hot food will be available.
