If you are about my age then there is one name and one voice that resonates in your ears every time someone mention Formula One, Murray Walker. In fact I was born in 1978 the very same year that Murray Walker began his career in F1 commentating for the BBC. So for me his voice and passion for the sport is very much apart of who I am as an F1 fan.

Today, October the 10th, Murray Walker celebrates his 90th birthday and Jenson Button from McLaren, via Mclaren F1’s Twitter account, posted a very special birthday greeting. So along with Jenson I too would like to extend my warmest wishes and simply say, Happy Birthday Muzza!

Brought up in a world of Mini's, road trips, rallying and tinkering it is unsurprising that among my passions, since I can remember, cars have been something very special to me. The way they look, the way they smell and especially the way the sound.This passion has grown over the years from a spectator's seat at Formula 1 and WRC events to active participation in events such as the Cannonball Run NZ and Stance Off Events. My current love affair is with a slightly tuned Mk4 Golf GTI which brings me nothing but joy on the road.This love for driving and cars has led me start a Podcast dedicated to my love of driving called Drive Life NZ where I hope to share my story while exploring the varied stories of other enthusiasts. Dispelling the myths surrounding car people and celebrating our diversity.
