VIP Tour of Aston Martin!


I was very lucky to be amongst a select few winners of a competition at work, where the prize was a VIP tour of the Aston Martin factory in Gaydon. I could hardly believe it when I found out as…

A) I never win anything
B) Of the people I work with I’m the biggest petrol head 🙂

I spent a very enjoyable two and a half hours being guided round by our incredibly knowledgeable hosts Nick and Miriam. My other colleagues seemed to be having a great time too.

Thanks Nick and Miriam!

Of particular interest to me was the close inspection of the various engines. I didn’t realise the new V8 is fuelled from the outside in (exhaust between the V). Certainly compact and powerful, I wonder if one would fit in the Scimitar?

Having said that, everything was of interest really! A great day apart from the weather, but even that was quintessentially English!!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
