This is a shameless plug for one of the most amazing humans I have ever met, and one of the biggest petrol heads I know too!!

Inspiration comes in many forms. My best friend is my biggest. He lost his sight over 10 years ago in a near life loosing car accident.

Last week we started his YouTube Video - He is building and R1 Powered Mini - Mostly by himself....

Please please please, you can you take a moment of our day to watch, like, comment and importantly share his channel - Simon is not an influencer, but he is an inspirer!! so many people with metal and physical heath issues can relate to his pains, and hopefully he will help them see the better life has to offer!!



PS.. Our production quality will improve with time!!

Subscribed, he certainly knows his way round an engine, far better than many with 20:20 vision, myself included. I cant begin to comprehend how difficult it must be living without your sight. The 2am bathroom dash is hard enough, usually ending in some sort of collision. Truly impressive and inspirational stuff.

I need to fess up though... I did smile (with him not at him) when he couldn’t find the manifold in episode 1; how does he find a 10mm socket!?!

He often works in the dark, his wife doesn't like him doing it - He just says it makes fk all difference to him so save the electric
