I'm 35 and have lived in south east London all my life.
I work as an office equipment / I.T engineer in central London.
I have been mad about cars my whole life, fuelled by my father who
as a sales rep travelled the entire country at over and above the national
I always wanted a BMW, and fell in love as a teenager with the marque.
I got my first E28 in 1992 aged 20.
It was an Arctic blue 528i Manual with M-tec & LSD.
The rest is history....I progressed through E34's to the M5.
I have a habit of being given cars throughout my life,
latest project being a citrine yellow Mondeo SI complete with ADAPTIVE DAMPING ! ! !
Which of course is BROKEN !
I am a keen biker, a Mini enthusiast & competitive behind the wheel of
anything with an engine.
I have a 1976 Mk3 Mini Clubman, and also pictured is my best friends'
1425 street racer...130bhp at the wheels, lsd, straight cut etc etc.
1/4m in 15.2sec
A few years ago Autocar magazine with Jonathan Palmer ran the "HOW FAST?"
I attended in the M5, the idea was to benchmark all classes of car around
Bedford autodrome 3.6mile GT circuit.
Out of 100 cars I put the E34 10th over all on the day, being fastest placed
The results appeared in Autocar magazine 12th September 2001.
I have trained in kickboxing for 6 years, run about 12 miles a week and will
be seen out in all weathers washing / polishing Farrells I mean my M5.
I got to the Nurburgring last year & hope to go again this year.
I travel to many rounds of the Moto GP championship including last year
Holland, Portugal, UK & France.
I suppose my dream come true would be to meet a sexy petrolhead girlfriend
who didn't cost as much as an M5 to run.
Thats me !
