Yellowwheels talks and rides with Lotus Exige racer Mark Funnell.

Castle Combe 12th June: Mark is testing and practicing for the weekend’s Sportscar GT race. Time’s precious, but he kindly gives Castle Combe longtime commentator Dave George, a few full tilt laps in the passenger seat. He’ll end up with some seat of the pants experiences to weave into his race commentary and no doubt a few expletives to omit!
