Peter Dumbreck (born 13 October 1973 in Kirkcaldy) is a racing driver from Scotland. In 1994 he dominated the British Formula Vauxhall Junior championship and followed this in 1996 with a similarly strong performance when he won ten races to take the full Formula Vauxhall Championship. In 1998 he took the Japanese Formula 3 title with a record breaking eight wins out of ten races. The climax of Peter Dumbreck's 1998 season in Formula 3 was victory at the Macau Grand Prix - a race that traditionally attracts entries from all the world's top flight Formula 3 drivers. In 1999 Peter Dumbreck momentarily shot to world prominence when he not only survived but walked away uninjured from a horrifying high speed incident during the 1999 24 Hours of Le Mans race when his #5 Mercedes-Benz CLR somersaulted into the woods at about 300 km/h. Mark Webber had already suffered similar crashes in the #4 car during the Thursday night practice and the Saturday morning Warm-up. The remaining #6 car was retired immediately, and the team withdrew from all other planned entries in endurance racing and ALMS. When the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) returned from the 2000 season onwards, Dumbreck continued to race for Mercedes-Benz in the DTM touring car championship until 2002. A third place in the final standings of the 2001 season was his best result. He then moved to the Opel team in 2003 and 2004 where he suffered another major accident at Zandvoort track in 2004. In 2005 Peter Dumbreck returned to Japanese Super GT (JGTC/Super GT) in the midst of the season, driving a Toyota which became Lexus from 2006 to 2008. His first Victory for Lexus came at Fuji on 4 May 2006. In 2006, he returned to Le Mans and drove the #85 Spyker Spyder for Spyker Squadron in the GT2 class, but that car retired with only 40 laps completed resulting in 47th finish overall. Same result occurred 2 years later 52nd overall only 43 laps completed. Then in 2010, Dumbreck returned again with Spyker and finally finished the race 27th overall, a classified finisher, and 9th place in GT2.
