Best motoring moment
I am passionate about classic cars and spend much of my spare time keeping my MG and Porsche 911 running smoothly. For me, when I have resolved a quirky problem which has required a somewhat unconventional solution, I love then being able to take the car out onto the hills around Huddersfield when it is running at optimal performance.
