Rally - Teaser pic
This one will flummox everybody - except the members of one car club in particular, and only the older members at that - so don't rush to give the game away too soon! This will be a real head-scratcher for most folks out there. This is a never before published picture of a young lad taking, not quite his first foray into motorsport, but it was certainly very early in his career. The event was a snow covered autotest and he was driving a self built Clan Crusader - the engine of which had been assembled on a kitchen table, in the kitchen of the family home. He later went on to world wide success - but not necessarily in driving. Clue? It's not who you first thought of!
