Not many years ago I sold my 1.9-litre Peugeot 205 GTI. And I miss it to this day. Which is absolutely not the same as saying I regret selling it, because I don’t. It went to a far better home than I could ever give it and it bought me a Caterham as a leaving present, so I can’t really complain about that.

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.
