Chris Lake-Smith – Profile

Instructor/BIR PDS

Chris started his career in 1969 in England, finishing second in both the Daily Mail “Star of Tomorrow” FF1600 Championship and the Daily Express “Crusader” FF1600 Championship, and was seventh overall in the competitive 1971 European Formula Ford Championship. In 1972 Chris earned a works drive in the factory Elden team alongside future Indy 500 winner Danny Sullivan, and set FF lap records at several circuits, including Estoril, Portugal. He moved on to Formula Super Vee and Formula 3, campaigning in England, Wales, Belgium, Portugal, Mozambique, South Africa and the United States. Chris was a senior instructor at the Brands Hatch international motor racing school (Motor Racing Stables) for four years and also instructed for MRS at Silverstone and Mallory Park in England. Having had over 120 starts in single-seater races and competed against such future F1 stars as Keke Rosberg and Jody Scheckter in their early careers, Chris scratched a lifetime itch in 2002 when he drove a Formula One Benetton at the French Grand Prix circuit at Magny Cours, France. 2014 is the eighth season Chris has been an instructor for BIR Performance Driving School.
