It’s well-known that Ronnie loves his cars … he’s an experienced track driver, he featured in Top Gear in 2004, and now the news has filtered on twitter that he will feature in the new Fifth Gear series, a British television magazines series about cars (produced in recent years by Discovery / History , the ones that also produced the American Hustle).
Ronnie has been on Fifth Gear before when in 2010 he tried himself at car racing
The quality of those two snippets isn’t great but hey!
Vicky gave Ronnie the fright of his life there!
Unfortunately I couldn’t find back the 2004 Top Gear episode where Ronnie had a quite hilarious chat with Jeremy Clarkson and was involved in a snooker challenge, needing to pot all the balls before the Stig completed a race around the track in Ronnie’s car.
But then Tim found this one, showing part of the show. Thank you Tim !
And big thanks to Silvry who has now unearthed the full episode, with Ronnie part (starting around 00:25) with the interview. It will make you smile!
And to stay in the theme… this is one of Ronnie’s favourite songs, it’s called “Fast Car”
and he loves listening to it when driving…
I have to say that I love the whole album, by Tracy Chapman, simply named “Tracy Chapman”. I was released in 1988, 30 years ago, and it’s still very relevant.
