Last weekend, I went through one of my favourite rituals of the year. I always do it at this time of year and it’s never lost its appeal for it signals the start of the motoring season.
Thank Frankel it's Friday: Time for one of my cars to go
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.
