On the RMS Blog: Richard Porter has a lot to answer for. He writes a regular column in Evo magazine, the brains behind the keyboard at scathingly funny motoring satire website, Sniff Petrol,however most interestingly you have likely seen his name pop up in the credits of your favourite motoring show currently on hiatus.

Really didn't think this book would be my thing, but I'm totally intrigued now. I like the idea of getting to look behind the scenes.
Great review (y)

For one of the biggest shows on TV I was surprised how down to earth the whole setup was, Wilman seems to play it humble in a 'remember where you came from', and Porter portrays the three stooges as what you see on TV as fairly similar to what they are like in real life.

He was at Hammonds bedside after the crash too. There's so much in there.
