Doing Car ME COTY

#FlashBackFriday to over a decade ago when as Editor of the Middle East edition of Car Magazine, I ran our first ever car awards. Unrelentingly hard work, a weighty responsibility, but extraordinarily satisfying and fun. We did several of these, and I even hosted and presented the last edition which was immensely enjoyable.

I used to think it was a Morris Minor and the resemblance is certainly there, but it’s not quite right. Anyway I can remember being fascinated by and in love with cars as far back as I can remember anything, despite the fact that no one in my family had any interest, professional or otherwise, in cars and motoring. How about you – where did your interests and passions first arise from? Oh and by the way, yes I am wearing a matching tie. LOL!!
