Derek Daly


Motor sport television color analyst and former race car driver


During his 17-year racing career, Derek competed against world champions, raced for some of the world’s most successful teams, won all over the world and was almost killed three times! His experiences are breathtaking.


Beginning in 1985, Derek began a second career as one of the most popular motor sport color analysts on ESPN, NBC Sports, CBS Sports, Fox and the Speed Channel.  In 1996, Derek partnered with BMW to open the most advanced driver training/racing school in the US.  In 2007, Derek launched a new race track design partnership with Paxton Waters, a nationally known race track facility architect and planner. Under the banner, Derek Daly Design (DDD), Derek will specialize in bringing back some of the character of the great race tracks of the world that has been lost over the past two decades.


With his native Irish wit, Derek presents powerful analogies with straight forward and fascinating details.  Drawing on his original research on business with some of the legends of professional auto racing, including Rusty Wallace, Roger Penske, Mario Andretti and A.J. Foyt, Derek discusses why some individuals and teams fail to reach their potential while others become successful and famous.  Motorsports teaches you how to succeed, adapt and change, overcome obstacles and most of all how to work together as a team.  The glamorous, success oriented world of motorsports has demonstrated to Derek that it takes more than just speed to give teams a major competitive advantage.
