Eddie Irvine

Former Formula One Driver

Motorsport legend Eddie Irvine burst into the limelight of the motorsport world in 1993, as a driver for F1 team Jordan. With a reputation that was growing race by race, Eddie signed for Ferrari in 1996 as the number two driver with Michael Schumacher.

Eddie’s time in the spotlight allowed him to understand what is needed to succeed in perhaps one of the most intense sports in the world, making him an ideal motorsport speaker for sporting and business environments alike.

Irvine proved his ferocious racing capabilities when not playing a secondary role to Schumacher. Eddie’s tenacious and combative style of driving made him a competitive and entertaining spectacle for F1 fans. It was only due to regulations awarding points to the top 6 drivers rather than 8 that prohibited Irvine from winning the World Championship in the 2001 season. During after dinner speeches, Eddie relates the lessons learnt of highly competitive environments to all aspects of life, ensuring audience members come away with new concepts to maximise success in their lives.

Outside of motorsport, Eddie had always been a keen property investor, with owner ship of around forty properties at an approximate value of £160 million. Besides this Eddie also owns a pub in Dublin along with the Eddie Irvine Sports Facility. After retirement from motorsport, Eddie keeps a low profile but can sometimes be found at the Goodwood Festival of Speed or at Queens University Belfast, where Eddie acts as patron for its Queens Formula Racing Team. One of the most sought after sports speakers, Eddie’s articulate delivery of speeches keep guests captivated by his invaluable advice and anecdotal tales of one of the golden eras of motorsport.
