‘Grit’ is an often overworked word but Mark Webber is the living embodiment of someone who believes in pushing himself to the very limit of his capabilities and then pushing on even further. When the motivational speaker launched the Mark Webber Tasmania Challenge in 2003, it was said that he had a “passion” for seeing people push their boundaries and set goals outside their comfort zones.
‘Grit’ is just one of the words that head up Mark’s personal website – the others are spirit, focus, ability and tenacity and these words sum up the man, making him perfect for speaking at any private event or corporate conference. Audiences love him.
A sports lover “through and through”, Mark Webber began his motor racing career in his native Australia and moved to the UK to get into Formula Ford, Formula 3, Formula 3000 and then Formula One. Like his body, Mark believes in pushing the cars he drives to their absolute limit and in 2009 – in the German Grand Prix – he achieved his first Formula One win.
Webber spent 12 years racing Formula One cars, during which time the motivational speaker managed to win nine races, achieve 19 fastest laps and find himself in pole position 13 times. While a member of the Red Bull Racing team he won four consecutive Constructors’ World Championships. In 2013, Mark left Formula One to go back into sports car racing.
