Despite living in the province for nearly two decades he hasn't lost a hint of his Essex accent, and we talk about his obsession with aircooled VWs, drag racing and how he relishes the challenge of getting on the tools of carbureted classics Read the Full Article Here

Got listening today! I used to watch a lot of drag racing videos on YouTube, would be awesome to actually get to some live events here. There was only one time I seen some drag racing and it was chucking it down! The Double Cross Beetle was there and its the loudest thing I've ever heard😂 I've seen videos of it wheelying but that day it just done lots of burnouts! Zero traction lol

Cheers for disgussing my eFuels topic! Good to hear some other thoughts 😂 but as @Big Pimp says you could easily fall down a conspiracy rabbit hole with it all but that's partly why I thought it would make a good topic😂

Anyways, good show and looking forward to the next👍🏻

I think it’s something @Cooper @Gaz and I will discuss a bit more when we have some time to talk crap on the next podcast!

I’ve been reading more into it!!!

Really enjoyable listen this one, felt like a long gap between podcasts when it wasn't really. Think I ran out of other stuff quicker this time lol

this is the 1st podcast I've listened to, and it won't be the last! Seen Ben was in this one and thought it would be worth a listen, it didn't disappoint!
