Tiff is a former Grand Prix driver and World Sportscar Championship veteran who made his Formula One debut at the Belgian Grand Prix in 1980 and from fourteen Le Mans 24 Hours starts had the best result of third in 1990.
In a fairytale start, he began his racing career by winning a Formula Ford Lotus 69F in an Autosport Magazine competition and then gradually rose through the single-seater ranks to earn his place on the Grand Prix grid.
He also raced Touring Cars, GT cars and even survived two outings in the British round of the World Rally Championship. Nowadays he still races whenever an opportunity arises and always looks forward to driving at the end of season Goodwood Revival Meeting.
