Martin Donnelly, born 26 March, 1964, was an Irish motor racing driver. After promising runs at Formula 3 and Formula 3000, in which he won 3 races and was a championship contender, Donnelly stepped up to F1 with Arrows in 1989. In 1990 he continued in F1 with Lotus, but he suffered a terrible fate when a crash during qualifying at the Jerez circuit crippled him for life. He sustained multiple injuries, and his F1 career was over. However, Donnelly has since managed to race in smaller club events, and manage a Formula Vauxhall team.
