life - EQUESTRIAN over for the younger generation. Although I might enter this year. Malcolm enjoying a day out hunting on Boxing Day 2005. Q. Where did your love of cars evolve from? A. I’ve always liked Jaguars, although I have just bought an Aston Martin DB7 which I take on track days at Goodwood. Q. What’s your ultimate dream car? A. I’d stick with the Aston, it’s a gentlemans conveyance. Q. What is your favourite Island Restaurant ? A. The Royal Hotel, Ventnor. Q. If you could change a single aspect of your past what would you change? A. I would not change any of it. I’d do it all again. Q. Where is your favourite holiday destination? A. I don’t go on holiday, my wife goes on cruises and I go hunting in Ireland. Q. Are you a whizz when it comes to computers and mobile phones? A. No, I’m a complete failure. I have a granddaughter that does it for me. Q. What’s the best thing about the Isle of Wight? A. The close community, you can walk into any pub or restaurant and immediately be in conversation with someone. Q. And the worst...? A. Time keeping of people on the Island, people come a week later than promised. I’m a punctual person myself, they don’t even call you to let you know they’re going to be late. 58 Sponsored by Froghill and Brickfields
