Suzi Perry

Suzi Perry was the first permanent female anchor of BBC One’s Formula 1 coverage, then in 2016 she returned to the world of motorcycle racing when she joined the BT Sport team as channel ambassador and host of the Moto GP and Speedway GP series. Travelling the world to report from trackside and speaking to the biggest names in motorsport for more than two decades truly makes her the ‘Queen of the Pit Lane’.

It’s not all about wheels and petrol though. Suzi’s other sporting credits include the BBC’s live coverage of Royal Ascot, Wimbledon, the London Marathon, the Trooping of the Colour, the London Olympics, the great North Run and the University Boat Race.

Growing up surrounded by music (her Dad was a leading band manager, booking agent and venue promoter and her godfather was a founding member of Whitesnake), Suzi has a deep love for radio and live performances. She is regularly called upon to cover the early breakfast show on BBC Radio 2 and following a hugely positive response from the audience she has also covered the drive time show and fronted a documentary looking at the music playlists of the world’s leading Formula 1 drivers.

She has numerous other television credits and regularly contributes articles to leading newspaper and motorsport publications.

A Celebration of Speed is delighted she is able to join us again to host our second dinner and we look forward to welcoming her back to the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl.
