He's one of five blokes sharing the car, four of whom are over 50 years old (Brian's 64). Helmet on, seat mould in hand, he jogs on the spot and puffs his cheeks.

"This is it, me old son," he shouts back in Geordie. "This is f**king it!" The car rumbles into the pit box, and co-driver Jim Pace is yanked out before Brian is shoved in.
