Our favorite British truck mechanic/racer/TV star/Spitfire restorer hasn’t really given up racing, as he’s currently building a supercharged Ford Transit van to try to break the lap record for a commercial vehicle at the Nürburgring. But he’s mostly quit racing motorcycles, filling that time with a whole host of other eclectic activities. He’s also just written his fourth book, We Need to Weaken the Mixture; to promote it he gives this great interview to The Belfast Telegraph, in which he covers among other things, why he quit racing bikes.
