Brian Herman Thomas Redman[1] (born 9 March 1937 in Colne, Lancashire[2]) is a British former racing driver from England.

He was very successful in sportscar racing and the World Sportscar Championship, winning the 1970 Targa Florio with a Porsche 908 and the 12 Hours of Sebring twice, in 1975 with a BMW Coupé and in 1978 with a Porsche 935. He was for many years associated with the Chevron marque, founded by fellow-Lancastrian Derek Bennett.

Redman drove for Shadow Racing Cars both in CanAm and in Formula One. He also appeared in McLaren, Cooper and Alfa Romeo cars. He dominated North American Formula 5000 racing in the mid-1970s winning the SCCA/USAC Formula 5000 Championship three years in a row (1974-1976) driving Lolas.

He participated in 15 World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on 1 January 1968. He achieved 1 podium in the 1968 Spanish Grand Prix in third place behind Graham Hill and Denny Hulme in a Cooper BRM, and scored a total of 8 championship points with two 5th places in the 1972 Monaco Grand Prix and the 1972 German Grand Prix driving a Yardley McLaren.

He was offered various other Formula One drives, but did not particularly enjoy the atmosphere of F1 even in the 1970s, preferring sports car racing.

He raced many Le Man 24 hour races and living in Florida is still active appearing at the 36th Rolex Monterey Historic Automobile Races in August 2009. [1][2]
