Hey MOTOR, I have been an avid reader of your excellent magazine since I immigrated from NZ in 2001. Even with options via various technology, I still look forward to receiving a monthly magazine that I can feel in my hands and read from cover to cover. I have driven several different supercars, so I can relate to how well your writers describe an experience in the kind of machinery you get to test, for me it is the next best thing to being there, so keep it up. I married exceptionally well, my wife was once Australian Women’s Motorkhana Champion, she even beat Jim Richards in her Mini Cooper S, and used to rally until she rolled it. She taught our two boys to drive, Brock and Kent (I couldn’t get away with Johnson for the second son). We all drive manuals as we all feel that you are actually driving the car. My father-in-law was a senior CAMS Official, significantly contributing to the CAMS rule book, assisting with the running of Bathurst since the 1970s, and attending numerous International Formula One events as a Steward. So my wife grew up around motorsport. My main passion, after my family, has been anything Ferrari related for over 30 years, I have collected and read many books and online articles about the history, as well as purchasing numerous merchandise items to show my red passion. I have had a sensational year attending two Supercars races, the Singapore Formula One GP, and when in Europe the Formula One races in Spain and Monaco, where ‘our’ Daniel won, much to my wife’s delight. I was speaking to a drag racing record holder last week about our motorsport passion, and I assumed his wife would be similar to mine. Alas, not in his case. He told me how lucky I was to have a wife who supports my passion, comes to events with me and can even have a conversation about the state of play. This really hit home at how lucky I am, indeed. To all the women out there who follow motorsports, and support their partners, I salute you. Paul Lowrey, via email
