You don't want to be stuck in the arse end of nowhere, however picturesque, with people you wouldn't want to have a beer with, and luckily our compact crew enjoys a little light refreshment and a laugh. Jens, in particular, is quite a character. He's a Veyron veteran, having been on the programme from day one (work started back in 2001, which seems hard to believe). He reckons he's racked up in excess of 50,000km over the years in various Veyrons, and once did 10 zero-225mph-zero runs to see if it was possible in a distance of 2,300m ("I needed another 300m," he says). Well, it beats winter testing in a Polo.
