Great idea!

Name : Chris Ryu
Age : 23 (at heart anyway!)
Location : Sunny Poole, Dorset
Job : Full-time Audi Marketing Specialist, part-time ambassador for the A1 (volunteer of course!)
Drives : Un-able to drive at the moment (have been a poorly boy!), but have a VW Sharan and a track-day car, with an A1 on order as soon as I get the all-clear!
Hobbies : Marine fish! I have my own reefs split between a few tanks. I breed corals (I'm a bit of a wannabe scientist) and donate the new corals to charities that try to save the coral reefs. I also spend as much time as I can (and can afford) on the race-track. Oh and I am a die hard Audi fan!
Anything else of interest: not many people know this (even my close friends) but I used to be a world class martial artist. Of course that was a while ago - now I would be lucky to be a champion at any sport that involves physical activity... ...is tiddly-winks a sport?

Life in Fife this last 24 hours has been like living in a wind tunnel ... horrible!
I watched "The Trip" last night for the first time (and will be sure to see it next week) but I'm not sure I get the humour in it. Maybe it will grow on me!

I agree John! if you look to the right of Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon ( when their sat in the window seat & you can see the lake and mountains ) you will see my Wife ( in a bright top ) and myself, we got paid for being extras and eating 3 Michelin star lunches & a few bottle of cloudy bay, couldnt move the next day! then they had to come back 3 weeks later for a re shoot, never eaten so much good food, you can have too much of a good thing!
