If heredity and environment are significant, which they are supposed to be in racing, then it should be no surprise that 19-year-old Harry Skelton is doing what he is.

Car Choice: Long journeys are wearing on hips and knees, I need a comfortable ride

David McNamara, 69, is starting to suffer from osteoarthritis. A long car drive can become wearing on the joints. According to his physiotherapist he would be better off in a car with a driving seat that allows him to sit up straight, to ease the pressure on his hips and knees, and is higher off the ground, so it's easier to get in and out. At present David drives a five-year-old 1.6 VW Golf Estate, worth about £4,000 or £5,000. He would be prepared to spend up to £15,000. Seating space for grandchildren and boot space would be welcome.
