Profile

"Mad Max" came to racing from karts. Race-winning form in Formula Three was followed by two years in Formula 3000 that produced just one win, a runaway affair at Barcelona in 1994. He joined Footwork mid-1995 when Gianni Morbidelli's money ran dry and was faster than team-mate Taki Inoue. He was soon dropped, but shone in the 1996 Daytona 24 Hours sports car race in a private Ferrari. He has subsequently raced in Indy Cars and sports cars in the US, winning the Daytona 24 Hours for a second time in 2002.
