There’s a Co-Driver 1 stuck to the aluminium dash of my Lotus Elise; a super little driver’s aid, designed to help you keep your eyes on the road as it beeps to warn of cameras and traffic accidents ahead. It pairs with your phone via Bluetooth and runs off an internal battery – no cables, no screen, just a smart disc on the dash. It had 100000 cameras stored and accidents and incidents can be added or confirmed with a simple press of the button. Co-Driver 2 is rechargeable and just as handy. Thanks to Ooono for the trial, it’s a handy gadget that helps safety on the move.

His latest book (find his work on Amazon) was described by SniffPetrol as "hilarious", although he was also threatened with legal action by elderly DJ Tim Westwood. In his Midlands man cave is a 1972 Fiat 500, a Lotus Elise, a BMW barge and a vintage Royal Enfield pushbike. Previous machines of interest include an Mk1 MX5 (owned for 14 years!), an Alfa GTV6, a Porsche 968 and a Sinclair C5. The Metro (right) was bought for an experiment, and abandoned in Africa. "I am not getting in a car with him" -  said Le Mans winner, Derek Bell. *A nom-de-plume inspired by the BBC's League of Gentlemen.
