the boundaries of possibilities in what they can achieve in life and immensely
influenced and inspired me to lead my passions in life, they have both picked
up life by the scruff of the neck and not let go till they’ve achieved
what they set out to do. Fearless leaders and remarkably inspirational.
Colin was a the leading inspiration for my passion in motorsport and I am very
honoured to have had the privilege to have met my idol, and relaxed and chatted
with him earlier this year at the Monaco Grand Prix, this is a moment in time
I shall treasure and will inspire the rest of my career, my life and encourage
me to fulfill my passions in times of hesitation."
