Okay, so you have to have a leisure automobile, a usable automotive and a racing automobile, I suppose. So the usable car would probably be a brand new G-Wagon. One is I just love working with my mates and I really like the format.

Also I have to forgive him slightly in that he did ask my mother on a date again in the day, I suppose whilst my mother was going out with my father. I’m undecided my father was particularly pleased about it but I don’t suppose they ever went on a date. But there you go, I’ll forgive him for that. But what an amazing man, obviously massively missed. I had at all times wished to do 200 mph, which I managed to do barely afterward, and I’d at all times needed to get in the Guinness Book of Records.
- Editor of Motor Sport for 5 years, he now runs our street test part.
- And the F40, I just have not driven a more exciting highway automotive than that.
- I think there are many individuals who do what I do, who write for themselves.
- After being pals for lengthy, they noticed sparks between them and started courting one another.
If there was one place that I would go if I needed to reliably drive great cars in Europe, it would probably be Northern Spain. I find old vehicles more exciting to write about, drive about, be in and about, in all ways. I do not really write about classic street cars any more.

We at all times thought that after the web turned up that print would disappear, and that hasn’t occurred. There will in all probability be much less of it, however I assume that there’ll all the time be people who want to eat stories about automobiles. I grew up with two older brothers and a father who had been utterly obsessed with cars, from actually my earliest reminiscence. I don’t know where my father got it from as a result of his household weren’t fascinated at all. Like type of food and drink, they were simply part of my life.

But secondly, when you do what I do for a dwelling, and you’re a contract motoring journalist, you are sort of at the beck and call of your shoppers. If Autocar or MotorSport, or anyone else I work for, needs me to go someplace and do one thing, then that’s what I go and do. I can assume to myself, nicely I’m going to write down about this this week, or I’m going to ask Dan what he thinks about writing about that, and it is paddling your own canoe. So it’s very completely different to anything I do and I love each minute of it. We’ve now received 36,500 folks studying Drive Nation, even though we have had no money to put money into it, so it’s just had to develop organically. We’ve obtained a podcast as nicely, which is kind of in style, and we do little different bits right here and there.
