Triple Le Mans 24 Hour race winner and reigning World Sportscar Champion Allan McNish attended a dinner in California last weekend (14-17 Aug) to commemorate his exceptional motor racing career.

McNish, from Dumfries, was invited to visit the Monterey Peninsula, located on the Pacific coastline between San Francisco and Los Angeles, to “celebrate” his incredible 32-year career along with legends from the world of motor racing and motoring in general.

“I was honoured at a dinner that had the likes of three-time World Formula One Drivers' Champion Jackie Stewart, his son Paul plus Marino Franchitti in attendance so I really felt at home!” commented McNish who retired from racing last December.

“Jackie was a big influence in my career from start to finish while Paul and I started out in Formula Ford together in 1987.
“It was the first time I’d attended the unique event at Pebble Beach and it was an absolutely amazing experience.

“It’s an annual event that started with an auction in which a Ferrari 250 sold for £35million. The following day there was a concourse event at The Quail Lodge & Golf Club for some of the world’s most stunning cars and motorbikes and was judged this year by fellow Doonhamers Ian Callum, the Director of Design for Jaguar Cars, and his brother Moray, design director for Ford in America.

“Wolfgang Dürheimer, Chairman and CEO at Bentley Motors and Bugatti plus Jackie [Stewart] were also judges.”

McNish also met up with Stirling Moss at the nearby Laguna Seca race track to reminisce about their respective eras racing at Le Mans.

Allan claimed pole-position, won and set the fastest race lap at Laguna in a 2000 American Le Mans Series race en route to the first of three ALMS titles – winning three times for Audi there in total.

Allan, who attends most FIA World Endurance Championship races in the role as an “ambassador” for Audi Sport, returns to America next month to monitor the team’s progress in the Lone Star Le Mans event staged the Circuit Of Americas in Texas – a six hour race McNish won last year.

McNish resumes his role for the BBC as co-commentator for Radio 5 live and expert analyst across TV, radio and online at the Belgian Grand Prix this weekend (22-24 August).




Allan has acted as an ambassador for many diverse organisations, both large and small. His knowledge of the business environment is second-to-none and this shows in his professional and engaging dialogue, supported by his passion to get it right.
