Motorists are used to the pain of rising fuel prices which soared again this month to the highest levels since July 2015. Increases on the forecourt might grab all the media headlines.But it's not just the rises in fuel costs that risk driving motorists off the road. Big jumps in insurance premiums are hitting drivers even harder and are also forcing up the cost of motoring.
Look, some people just shouldn't be drivers. In fact, I believe a lot of people shouldn't be drivers. Yet, look into the wallets - or yes, even purses - of the vast majority of these potential road hazards and you will find a light pink card with a ghastly pale photo in the top tight hand corner, which permits them to drive around the world, risking lives at every non-indicated turn, as they see fit.
It has been a few weeks since my last blog because, well , it's been mad! After the events of Gumball 3000 a couple months back, there was a long lead up working hard for the Le Mans 24hour race. It is a race that stands out as one of the best in the world along with the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indy 500. I feel lucky enough to have raced on all three tracks.
