A combination of writing for motorsport magazines and also being a competitor brought about a great many opportunities to drive other people's competiton cars, sometimes for magazine features, other times just for the hell of it, and I thank all the owners for their trust in allowing me to do so. On one occasion I was passenger, and in that instance I had to trust the 'driver' but he was a multiple World Champion!
