Default Richard Attwood

Now-retired racing driver who was at the original D2 A8 UK launch and some of us (me included) have "The book" with his autograph (and others).
Todays Sunday Times has a full-page article about him in the motoring section of the magazine, and his dream car is - a D2 A8!

In fact its's the same 1999 4.2 V8 he bought back in 2004 with almost 100K on the clock and is now nearer 250K!
I wonder who does his maintenance?
