For a confirmed petrolhead, Martin hasn’t had a very inspiring car history. He acquired a new Golf GTi 16v back in 1997 and promptly got a new job the City of London and has travelled mostly by train ever since. The GTi only managed around 35K miles in the following 15 years. In 2009 however, he realised a long term dream and built a Caterham Superlight R300 which has been tweaked and upgraded ever since. The perfect weekend antidote to the miserable commuter’s existence. His next goal is to restore a sports/race car from the year of his birth and maybe enter it at the Goodwood Revival one day. So if anyone has a 1968 GT40 rusting away in an old barn that they don’t want, do get in touch.
