About Mr Q

Driving shouldn’t just be about getting from one place to another. Driving itself should be an event! Often accused of being a Luddite or a dinosaur, Mr Q strongly believes in driving your car the old-fashioned way. Most modern cars make it too easy and sadly the art of driving is being lost completely. It is Mr Q’s mission to reconnect people with driving as a hobby, not just as a means to an end. This probably explains his love of sports cars, particularly old British cars, or super-light track weapons. Life is too short to drive boring cars!
