Tim Ansell: I Talked Cobras with Tom Cruise & broke my back on the Desert Challenge

Check out the latest episode of ‘BrownCarGuy & Buddies!’

Tim Ansell talks about working on Syriana, Fast & Furious 7 and Mission Impossible 4 during which he got to talk to Tom Cruise about AC Cobras.

A huge fan of Land Rovers, he started rallying in the Desert Challenge as a co-driver until a crash broke his back, so he took up photography, shooting cars, planes and motorsports, as well as motoring journalism. All the while successfully running businesses in the UAE and UK.

His latest adventure is yet to begin however – he planes to go overlanding and tour the world in a six-wheel Mercedes. We talk about why that’s three years behind schedule, as well as reminisce about the fun times we’ve had on press events together.
