@chrisriekert, showing some incredible multitasking skills tonight! #redhookcrit

Got very wet getting here, but was well worth it. These bikes are so beautiful! Thanks for the warm welcome @specializedrocketespresso

Happy birthday to one of my favourite people, @scottdixon9! Love yer work brother! Hope there's plenty of beer and chocolate for you today.. πŸ‘πŸΌ

Happy birthday #F40. Took this one over 40,000km last time I drove it and there was not a thing that didn't feel as good as the last 5,000km one I drove. The moral of the story is get out there, enjoy your (or someone else's!) F40 and put some miles on them!

You need to follow my Uncle @harleycluxton, he's nuts, but good nuts! He also used to use this as his daily driver at college... please note the padlock to stop people stealing his fuelπŸ‘†πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜ #Repost @harleycluxton (@get_repost)

First cinema experience for Luca, he's attempting to eat his body weight in popcorn, so I think he's got it! 😍 #Cars3

Excited for my first @redhookcrit experience with @specializedrocketespresso this Saturday! πŸ‘πŸΌ

Thank you @bonhamsmotoring for a really fun day @goodwoodrrc, Archie performed well for his first run and there was some lovely cars out on track, like this one! 😍

Here's a great story you may not have heard before. The date is 1957, the 12 Hours of Sebring is underway. Stirling Moss noticed some people drinking a Coke at the hairpin so he gave them the universal sign of "I'm thirsty". That's when famous photographer Bernard Cahier grabbed a Coke and was ready for the next time Moss would pass, as Moss slowed down for the hairpin Bernard held out the Coke and Moss grabbed it. The next lap Stirling tossed the empty container on the grass by Bernard and waved as to say "Thank You". Talk about a T.V. Commercial in the making. Almost to good to be true, but it is.
