Rally - Ride of his life
For one young man, today's GWF Energy Merrick test day was a day he'll never forget. 22 year old Olly Wragg bought a 'David Bogie Rallying' jacket from Billy Powertools and his name was entered into a prize draw. He won. Amongst his team gear prizes was a ride with David in the Focus WRC.
He left his home in Windermere in the Lake District (that's in Englandshire by the way) this morning at 6 am having taken a day off work so as not to miss his first ever ride in a rally car.
Good on David, he gave Olly two runs and left the lad beaming from ear to ear and almost speechless at the end of it, although I did catch the breathless utterance "awesome" a few times.
