    "Can I afford a Ferrari F40 yet?" with John Mayhead - Hagerty

    "Can I afford a Ferrari F40 yet?" with John Mayhead - Hagerty

    John Mayhead is the editor of the UK Hagerty Price Guide and has the enviable task of tracking and reporting classic car values on behalf of the insurance and automotive lifestyle brand, Hagerty.
    This incredible job brings with it some incredible stories, many of which you'll hear in this chat. Be warned; the episode brings some bittersweet emotions, such as John Marcar's realisation that he probably won't ever be able to afford a Ferrari F40. Amy also attempts some accidental insider trading (almost! - don't worry, legal folk - it doesn't work!)

    Richard Porter aka SNIFF PETROL

    Richard Porter aka SNIFF PETROL

    This week on the Driven Chat Podcast, John Marcar and Amy Shore are joined by script editor and author Richard Porter.
    Richard Porter is perhaps most famously known as the scriptwriter for Clarkson, Hammond and May for BBC Top Gear and Amazon's The Grand Tour. More controversially, he was a secret satirist for the automotive world through his mysterious yet frankly brilliant website - SNIFFPETROL.com - a website that ultimately granted his career in the TV world.
    In this chat, Richard unearths the early days of his career with the most fantastic tangents and anecdotes... including a story about being filmed by John Bentley in a mobile phone shop in the late 1990s. Later we hear some incredible stories through the timeline of his work with Clarkson, Hammond and May.

    Top Gear & The Grand Tour Executive Producer - Andy Wilman

    Top Gear & The Grand Tour Executive Producer - Andy Wilman

    Andy Wilman is the vital 4th name to be added on to the highly esteemed Clarkson, Hammond & May. As one of the creators and the executive producer of Top Gear from 2002 onwards, he has been celebrated as one of the great brains that created and managed one of the most loved TV shows for petrol heads. Of course, beyond Top Gear at the BBC, Wilman went on to executive produce Clarkson, Hammond and May's next production - The Grand Tour and Wilman frequently pops up on the show as nothing more than a name; 'Mr Wilman' in the form of written instructions and challenges via text messages to the presenters' phones.
    In this exclusive chat with Andy Jaye, Andy Wilman shares some of the lesser-known stories, anecdotes and behind the scenes tales (of which there are many!) whilst producing our favourite car shows.

Stutters to Stardom

Great to hear James’s (MrJWW) side of the Litchfield story and other insights. Could have done with another hour! James only said ‘man’ once of twice which was equally brilliant. Great listen.
