"It was a year topped and tailed by great cars but even more so, great people. In February, I drove from London to Cadiz in 22 hours in a Maserati MC Stradale to meet round-the-world yachtsman and hero Giovanni Soldini. In September, former F1 driver and now double gold medal-winning Paralympian Alex Zanardi captivated me with his sheer strength of character. And just two weeks ago I spent a day with AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson, Ferrari, Lola and Bentley owner and racing driver, who turned out to be quite possibly the funniest human being I've ever met."
