Andy is the founding member of RMS, and when he's not following motoring events around the UK and Ireland he can be found on the track (sideways, having competed in top level drifting for a decade), or of course he'll be on the forum.

Just finished it. I’d never heard of him tbh, but it was good chat. Amazing how a career can just take off from nothing.

I think Bob got a lot of flack from the Irish car scene when he got involved in the cars and coffee stuff. Was another lad that runs a dealership down south. Not sure exactly why but got the understanding they were trying to monetize it and the Irish don't link people making money I guess.

Its a difficult one as its his bread and butter. Jonny Smith is doing similar with spectacular results, and I am busting to get to one of his shows.
