A while back, we moved to a house with a bit of land. A bit more land than I wanted to be honest, but where we live in the Welsh borders is not the Cotswolds where chocolate box homes are strewn around the countryside, which meant that (a) we could afford it and (b) we really had to buy it because there was no telling if and when another suitable place might come along.
My tractor is my favourite car | Thank Frankel it's Friday
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.
