Geoffrey "Geoff" Lees (born May 1 1951) is a retired British driver. His long career included almost everything except for Formula One success. He is unique in that his five F1 starts occurred in five different marques (Tyrrell, Shadow, Ensign, Theodore & Lotus), with his best finish a 7th in his debut for Tyrrell at the 1979 German Grand Prix. Lees is also the only person in history to win Formula Two titles in both Europe and Japan, and wound up spending much of his career in Japan. In addition he drove 14 times in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, with a best finish of 6th in the 1990 race for Toyota.
