I am aware of how pathetic this is going to sound, but it’s true and I’m going to tell it like it is. There are many things to look forward to at Christmas but I imagine few anticipate going to get the tree with quite the same relish as me.
Thank Frankel it's Friday: 70 years of Land Rover love
Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
