In this Memories series, recorded during the lockdown of 2020, our founder Sir Jackie Stewart, OBE discusses memories of a remarkable life in motorsport, business and beyond.
Sir Jackie is joined by an illustrious group of friends, from royalty to international stars of music and entertainment, to other sporting legends.
We hope you enjoy watching.
A chameleon and master of mimicry, comedian Rory Bremner sits down with Sir Jackie and lets us into the world behind the laughter. From his multi-talented family, to his experiences in the entertainment world, Rory takes you through many moments in his life, shared memories with Sir Jackie, special guest appearances from ‘world leaders’ and many customary laughs along the way.
Proudly presented by Race Against Dementia, Sir Jackie Stewart and Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal share memories from their Friendship of over 50 years.
A relaxed conversation between old friends covering antics from horse eventing and motor racing, to Hollywood greats and close family connections.
Sir Jackie and His Royal Highness Prince Salman Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain, a long time supporter of RAD, have a shared belief that Formula 1 can help secure a vital research breakthrough in dementia. Join them as they discuss the sport, their first chance meeting on Concorde, and how that led to placing Bahrain as one of the key events in the F1 calendar. Sir Jackie has a lot to answer for!
With some spectacular motorsport crashes in his career, famed Red Bull Racing driver Mark Webber, is lucky to be with us today. The Aussie Formula 1 star and TV pundit joins Sir Jackie for a look back at the highs and lows of an adrenaline-filled life and their close friendship off the track.
Sir Jackie’s earliest memories of growing up in Scotland, his beginnings in motorsport and his first race in Monaco, an event for which he only had enough money for a one way ticket, watch above to see what happened!
“I have been fortunate to have a wonderful career and my wife Helen was by my side through it all. We should have been able to share those memories forever but dementia has stolen that away. Without urgent progress, one in three people born today, will go on to live with dementia and that is unacceptable. I passionately believe that the way Formula 1 uses problem-solving and innovative thinking to achieve remarkable developments at speed can help scientists to create a real and much-needed breakthrough in dementia research.
My ‘MEMORIES’ series of conversations is intended to show the value of shared remembrances and recollections to human health and well-being as well as help raise further donations so RAD can grow its programme of vital research fellowships.
I am enormously grateful to all those who have given up their time to speak so openly in these conversations. I hope that everyone can find some comfort and enjoyment in them.”
Your donation will help fund ground breaking global research into new dementia treatments and preventions.
