This week's guest fronts the world's biggest rock band - AC/DC's lead singer Brian Johnson is also an authority on cars, and it's a real privilege that he joins me on the Ultimate Road Trip podcast. Along with the usual 5 URT questions, we talked about his general love of cars and motor racing and how all things automotive have played an important part in his life. There are the TV shows which he's presented over the years, covering both music and cars, and then of course we talked AC/DC, and how the band approached the release of their 17th studio album 'Power Up', despite the pandemic.  Thanks again for listening, please share/follow or subscribe!

The name Alex Hirschi may not ring too many initial bells, but undoubtedly you'll have heard of 'that girl with the cars' Supercar Blondie and I'm excited to say that she's my guest for this week's edition of the Ultimate Road Trip Podcast. She's a social media sensation with millions of followers, but last year was of course a little different than usual. After initially taking advantage of the pandemic travel restrictions to have a breather from her hectic schedule, Alex then got on with what she does best, bringing the latest in automotive culture to a rapidly growing audience worldwide. And shortly before Christmas she found time to join me for her Ultimate Road Trip.

Last year, the motor racing world paid tribute to the great Sir Stirling Moss, who died in April at the age of 90. It was a huge privilege for me to interview him on a number of occasions, from Brooklands to Goodwood, and the last time I briefly spoke to him was at the Festival of Speed. He was there to drive his ex-Mille Miglia Mercedes 300 SLR and I thought I'd ask what he'd take on his Ultimate Road Trip...he was in absolutely no doubt about his choice of car or passenger, as you'll hear in this special episode of the podcast.

On this week's Ultimate Road Trip Podcast, I'm  joined by two times Formula One and Indy 500 Champion Emerson Fittipaldi. He was reunited with his Lotus 72's at Goodwood last October, and it was a privilege to chat with him before he headed out onto the circuit alongside his old rival and good friend Sir Jackie Stewart.

This week I'm joined by one of the UK's most popular chefs, James Martin. When he's not running restaurants or fronting some of the highest rated food shows on TV, he'll be collecting, racing or just tinkering with cars. When we met at Goodwood Speedweek, he was keen to talk about how the hospitality industry was dealing with lockdown, as well as the fabulous classic he'd pick for the URT.

I'm at Speedweek again for this week's Ultimate Road Trip Podcast, and I'm joined by Mr Aussie Grit himself, Mark Webber. After his brilliant F1 career, predominantly with Red Bull, he then clinched the World Endurance Championship in 2015 with Porsche. Since then he's been on TV as an F1 pundit, and so it's not surprising that Goodwood got him on board to help present from one of the most unique motorsport events ever staged. During a brief lull in his schedule, I put him on the spot for his URT, and it's a good 'un!

On the Ultimate Road Trip Podcast this week, I spoke to Take That's Howard Donald at Goodwood Speedweek. Howard was racing one of his latest classic Porsches at the event, but was more than happy to go over the 5 'URT' questions  (excuse the muffled sound - masks were obligatory obviously...)

It was the the week he was launching his new book celebrating 15 years of his two Michelin starred pub, The Hand & Flowers, as well as fronting the BBC Series 'Saving Britain's Pubs', but Tom found time to go through a great road trip with me.
