Result!

Managed to bag some invites to round 12 (Brands Hatch) of BSB. Thought I would offer a place to my boss on the off chance I might be able to blag a lift, as it's a few hundred miles from me to Brands. Didn't really think he would go for it being a busy man, but knew if I didn't at least offer, and he found out there were spaces I'd get a hard time. He not only jumped at the chance, but offered to take us there in his helicopter, and put us up in a five star hotel for the three days. Helicopter will pick us up from work and take us to the hotel, then pick us up in the mornings and drop us off at the track, then pick us up again in the evenings and drop us back to the hotel.

Will be guests of Tyco Suzuki for the weekend, with full corporate package.

Right result!

Dunno what you do for work, but I think there's a whack of applications headed your way...

My boss has just become Britain's newest Billionaire. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/pe...y-9352556.html

He flys all over the place in his helicopter, when he isn't out and about in his Rolls Royce Wraith (hideous thing). http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgur...tart=0&ndsp=16

Will definitely be posting some pics.

Lol.

He loves the Rolls, even turned down £80k to sell it before he had even taken delivery of it. For me the thing is bloody awful. The brakes just look wrong behind the monster (23" I think) rims. Most performance cars with big brakes have an Aluminium bell with the disc mounted on that. The Wraith has one piece cast discs, that look like they are off a van. The celestial head lining looks really cheap, and half the electrics has already gone wrong, and he only got the car a couple of months back. That's not good for a £275k motor.

Personally preferred his Bentley GT, much classier and nicer looking. The Roller is like a cruise liner on wheels; brash and showy.

Can't comment on the helo, I wouldn't know my 109 from a C50. As long as it only goes down when intended, I'll be happy.

Jezza doesn't seem to have reviewed the Wraith yet, but Top Gear have http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-news/r...ive-2013-09-01

Great review.
