The 1999 season saw the fortieth anniversary of the start of Brian's competition career, which began in the modest surroundings of Rufforth with a Morris 1000. Since those far-off days the Lancastrian has probably raced on more of the world's circuits than most of his peers, but he is hardly a household name. It could have been so different, for Redman had the talent to have become a Grand Prix winner, but his distaste for the high-pressure Formula 1 environment prompted him to turn his back on the GP paddock to enjoy an enormously successful and rewarding career in other forms of racing.

After early outings with a Mini, Redman made a name for himself in 1965 with a Jaguar E-Type before campaigning a Lola T70 in 1966. His career gradually gained momentum during 1967 in Formula 2 - with David Bridges' Lola - and sports car events, Brian winning the Rand 9 Hours in a Mirage with Ickx. In 1968 he had his first taste of Grand Prix racing with Cooper, which ended with a broken arm after a crash at Spa when his car's suspension failed. This came after a run of impressive performances, most notably victories in the BOAC 500 and Spa 1000 Km with Ickx in the GT40 and a brilliant drive in the F2 Eifelrennen with the Ferrari Dino that brought an offer of a works drive, which he declined.

Redman then began a long period in sports car racing (1969-73) with Porsche and Ferrari, winning virtually all the major classics with the striking exception of Le Mans, which has strangely eluded him. He made occasional returns to Grand Prix racing, usually as a replacement driver, but often without the benefit of testing and preparation. However, by this time Brian had established himself as the man to beat in US F5000, winning three successive titles between 1974 and 1976 in the Haas/Hall Lola. Overcoming serious injuries received at the start of 1977 when his Can-Am Lola flipped, Brian was soon back, winning at Sebring in 1978 and taking the IMSA title in 1981.

Based in Florida, Redman subsequently graced a wide variety of classes, racing as competitively as ever and revelling in the less-pressured atmosphere of motor sport in North America. He now also fronts the Redman-Bright F3000 team which successfully ran Gonzalo Rodriguez before the Uruguayan driver's tragic death in a CART accident at Laguna Seca in 1999.
