The most random thing you carry in your Toolbox / Laptop Bag to events?! I can’t fit any random things in my laptop bag, as it’s full of very important items.

Tell us something surprising about yourself? Apart from the fact that I beat the rest of the team in Karting at Oulton Park. I own a classic mini from 1971, which most of my money has gone into, running a newly refurbished 1275 mg metro engine.
