Boyhod hero ex Tyrell, Shadow, Ensign, Theodore and Lotus driver is back racing. Geoff hung up his helmet at the end of the 2000 season but has now decided to come out of retirement.
This is the guy that blew Mansell off in the same car (Ralt) in the European F2 Championship and later became the Champ (1981). Went over to Japan and won everything there was to win, not unlike Anthony Reid has done. Came within a wisker of winning Le Mans in 1998 in a Toyota with Boutsen and Kelleners, well actually 80 mins. Gearbox clusters having failed. Great driver.

Someone should suggest to Mel and Steve that Geoff Lees is on the prowl for a top drive at Le Mans and is available to my knowledge.

Last drove at Le Mans in a *** LMR in a privately entered machine of Thomas Bascher. Was thrashing the thing untill Jean Marc Gounon got in and spilled it in the Kitty Litter.

Section in this weeks Autosport stating that if a drive came his way, then Geoff would be most interested in having a go in the Revival Group C category. He goes on to say that he would much prefer a Toyota from the late 80's though.

Go for it Geoff! Make my day.
