Richard Webber Special correspondent

Richard Webber
Richard’s automotive awakening came in 1985 when watching Tony Pond’s Metro 6R4 drive between stages from the wall of his primary school playground in the Scottish Borders. He’s partial to Italian cars of the 80s and 90s, with past purchases including a Lancia Beta Coupé and Alfa Romeo 33 16V. He currently owns a Lancia Delta Integrale Evo 1 and is hankering after a cheap Land Rover Defender 90.
