Chris Hoy and the Jaguar F-Type
Sir Chris Hoy talks track days, peak torque and the Jaguar F-Type

But what of Sir Chris? He's 36 now, can he hold on to his form for another few years? "I've got a couple of small races coming up, plus the opening of the Glasgow Velodrome in October." Hoy is too modest to point out the venue for the 2014 Commonwealth Games is named after him...
But surely aiming for gold there would be the perfect way to round off a glorious career? "It's my body that'll make the decision for me. I have noticed that it's more difficult to recover from the intensity of training as you get older. Having said that, I love the look of the C-X75 [the £750,000 hybrid supercar]. Reckon I'll have to keep going into my seventiesto afford that thing."
