It’s not often you breakdown, hours from home and get picked up by a fan of your rally TV show, but that’s exactly what happened tonight. And it gets better.
After filming up in Scotland for the last couple of days, I was today driving back when the car I was driving started misfiring. I was around two and-a-half hours from home, and it had already been a long day. Sigh.
From there though, things started to get better. For a start, I’d been told I’d have to wait over an hour for recovery, but the truck turned up in 20 minutes, then it turned out the driver was a rally fan and watches Special Stage. So the conversation back to the garage would at least be rally-orientated.
On arriving at the garage, I discovered that the recovery company was owned by none other than former Toyota and Vauxhall works rally driver, Fred Henderson. The rally talk continued.

See you on the stages…when I’ve fixed the car.
