As I did not get a call from the BBC to appear on the new Top Gear, nor did I receive a call from Mr Clarkson to be part of his new venture, I thought I might as well plough my own furrow. I know that it is far from the finished article but I hope you like it. We will try and bring you another exciting instalment before Christmas, so look out for Episode 2. Before then though there is lots to do including, attending the 3rd Edition of the Bund Classic Concours d’Elegance in Shanghai 16th-18th October; running the Southern Hemisphere’s leading classic car auction at Motorclassica in Melbourne on Saturday October 24th; and attending the Dubai International Motor Show as a guest speaker at the UAE Motor Museum in November. But enough of that, flick the switch and get into Overdrive.
