Indy 500 Race Day 2019

So I've dreamt from an early age about going to the Indianapolis 500. The Indy 500 as it's known, Le Mans 24 hours and then Monaco Grand Prix are know as the triple Crown motorsport it's true test of men and women against the machine. Only a few drivers have won all three races, and famously Fernando Alonso tried in 2017 and again in 2019 (although he failed to qualify for this years race) The Indy 500 forms part of the Indycar Championship which takes place over USA and Candian race tracks. I start first started watching the CART Racing Championship (the name before Indycar) when Nigel Mansell went from being Formula One champion 1992 and then he headed to…

My Tag Heuer buying experience

For the last 10 years or so I've wanted to get a Tag Heuer watch. I grew up in the 1980's following Motorsport and watching the great Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost battling - always featuring on the McLarens at the time and of course now more associated with the Red Bull team. But since those early formative dates the Tag Heuer has been something to aspire to... It's a status, a badge of merit, a understanding and a self knowledge that you have done well. This show's nothing more than in the world of sales where things like the watch you wear IS your badge and credibility to open doors.... I've known for a while what watch that I…

Volkswagen Golf GTD Review

I've only once bought a suit from Marks and Spencer. It was 1994 and I was 14, my Mother thought that was the place to get suit's from. Ever since that day I've never bought a suit from the place again. It's just that M and S are just, well you know, yes that. You can't really sum them up as a luxury designer brand. It's that sort of thing like the Ronseal add. It does what it say's on the tin. This was my same view about the Volkswagen Golf. Volkswagen's famous 1987 advert of the woman leaving her husband with the tag line of "if everything was as reliable as a Golf" followed by the more recent adverts…

Top 10 Travel Apps

15 year's ago doing my job you would have had a atlas in the car - and probably an AA book of hotels. Now I'm usually in a destination and just program the car or my phone to my next meeting and can in the worst case book my hotel sat outside it on my phone via Apps.  Now of course I always try and plan better than that - but just sometimes those events come together meaning that's needed!! These are some of my favourite app's that I use for my daily life in business. I'm missing the obvious one's like What's App and things like Air BnB, Google Maps, Uber, Trip Advisor etc that everyone uses. It's more…

My go at the F1 Pitstop Challenge!

Anyone who know's me know's my love for all things 4 wheeled. The faster the better for me - so when I was invited down by LV Car Insurance to a combined maintenance and F1 pitstop challenge event - I instantly had to say yes! Since about the age of 8 or 9 I've loved F1, been to the racetracks followed the teams and although I've grown out of it (who'm I kidding!) always dreamed that I would have the opportunity to work in F1. A few months ago I went on a charity karting day and one of the challenges of the day was a F1 pit stop. However sadly at the time my team took the track we…
