Here's the lowdown: I left home at sharp 4 pm. Dressed in my favourite black jeans and blue Turtleneck. To endure the excruciating winter-wind and the heavy down pour that day. Got into the car. Drove off imagining how I'd make such a fantastic impression with my punctuality.
Toxic levels of air pollution are predicted to continue for at least another nine years. In this time, long-term damage will be done to millions of children's lungs. Pollution reduces children's lung growth, it irritates their airways and makes conditions like asthma worse.

May has been a busy month filled with fun! It all started with a phone call from Lee and Maximillan Cooper from Gumball 3000 asking BAC Mono and myself to take part in some of the stages of the Gumball Rally. We couldn't resist the opportunity for some fun and to show off the car.
In the lead up to the first race weekend of the year there is lots of prep work to do; engineering meetings in Germany with the race team, simulator training and physical training to make sure we are set for the first six-hour race of the year...
