Who are you?

We're always talking about our M5's but wouldn't it be nice to get to know each other a bit better...

Since this board hasn't got an "introduce myself" topic i feel we hardly know anything about each other...

So...to start off...what's your other big hobby or passion besides your M5?

My biggest hobby is travelling (backpacking)...covered most Asian countries so far...South America is next...

Tell us about and show us your kids, motorbikes, model cars, girlfriends, home cinema systems, game consoles, stamp collections or kite surfing pics !

My name is Wout , 26 yo

Just found out that for most of the week these days, I spend more time behind the wheel of a BMW than anywhere else including my bed. Thats satisfying

Honestly, great idea for a thread, although I know a lot of the boardmembers better than it may appear..Shame some of the old core doesn't post that much anymore

Excellent idea Ray. My name is Ralph, I am probably the most senior member at 57 and I work, for my sins, as a medical doctor in Poole, Dorset. I am also medical advisor to the Royal Yachting Association's Powerboat division which means I am often found in an open boat in the pouring rain with a four foot swell watching the not sound of mind pass by attempting to do the ton in a powerboat (when they have an oops I have to try and reassemble them). The picture is me in my "other car" at my "place at the beach" LOL, Don't I wish!

My two sons are keen drivers and hope to join the M class some day. The eldest is Mike, pictured with my M5. The youngest is Steve, whom some of you have met at the Ring, and he is in my "other car".

Hello, my name is Tony and I am an alcoholic - sorry, wrong forum....

Hello, my name is Tony Carter-Inman and I am an international man of misery

I'm 37, 18 stone of prime, expenses-funded lard. I'm not posting a photo as the screen isn't big enough, but my mugshots are all over the place anyway.

I work as a freelance graphic designer for lots of big UK companies (e.g. in the last 12 months I have worked for Asda, Tesco, Morgan Stanley, HSBC, Barclays, LloydsTSB, Aldar, Merrill Lynch & United Utilities), mainly where consultants have been brought in to redesign some part of the business (and I don't mean sacking people either!).

I live in Liverpool, but move all over the world with the job (e.g. my last two pieces of work were in Moscow and Abu Dhabi).

My main 'hobby' at the moment is motorsport marshalling (everything from hillclimbs to sprints to BTTC & BritCar 24hr), which I partake in at Oulton Park, Anglesey, Loton Park, Donington & Silverstone. Would do more tracks, but most weekends are already fully booked with the few 'local' tracks.

I upgraded from a modifed VW Corrado VR6 (SLC for our USofA/Canada members), and had a 3.8 6-speed before I busted it, and now have a 3.6 5-speed which I'm trying not to bust.

My name is Alexander Lantz, I'm 22 years young and Swedish. I recently completed my law degree at UEA ( University of East Anglia ) in Norwich and am now lecturing in English Law at the university of Angers in France. In September I'll off to Singapoure for a legal internship. Living somewhere warm will be a nice change.

Hobbies include the M5 of course. I also bought a First generation Chevrolet S-10 with a 4.3l V6 TBI. The engine is f##ked so I am going to put in a 350 Chevy V8 when I have the time.

My other hobby is American Football. I have been playing for 5 years (3 years with the UEA Pirates in BCAFL, 1 year with the Strasbourg Minotaurs in DivII and now with the Angers Yankees in DivII). Currently playing LG (Offensive line) and LE (Defensive End) Here are some pics of the UEA Pirates ( Im number 88 in the middle with the hat)

A pic from a few years ago, putting some punk in his place, the english are no match for us vikings

And last but not least my dog, 3 year old parson Jack Russel
