Suppose I should chime in too....been lurking on here for a long time, don't post as much as I should, but read near enough every day.
I'm a 30 year old materials engineer of Cornish decent who has lived the last 8 years in Switzerland, a country whos roads and mountains I love dearly. I currently live with my beautiful Spanish girlfriend Laura who besides being an architect is very patient with my fascination of cars and driving, i.e. 3300km road trip in our very loud elise patient
I work here in Switzerland for Alstom, a French industrial giant (TGV's, Power stations etc). Over the past 8 years I have worked in laser machining, diffusion brazing, superalloy development. More recently I managed the build/setup of a new materials testing laboratory in China.
My hobbies and interests are any rare and unusual cars (think brown maserati bi-turbos with brown velour interior unusual). I have owned all sorts, from white Manta GTE saloons to Porsche 928's. Not in love with any marque but have had a few BMW's and my M5 longer than anything else which says something. Dream car would be an e31 B12 5.7 Coupe or something equally as stupid. Garage is currently a '95 model M5,a Lotus Elise and a half restored MGB GT.
Outside my love of cars my hobbies include wakeboarding, snowboarding, hiking, travelling and getting out of trouble with my missus.
Love this board, and it's great to see faces behind names.
