Travel campaign: Route 57

, , ,

It made sense to list this as one big project but it’s something that’s gained a lot of traction and I’m so proud of it. Take a look at for more details on the route itself.

It’s a big road trip around the British Isles designed to rival Route 66 and I’ve driven all 2500 miles of it – in an electric car, no less.

We’ve had interest from newspapers, television and radio. I’ve been interviewed in almost all of the 57 destinations about this trip and about EV ownership. Here are just a few snippets of that coverage.

    Great project. And if it ever makes it to the big screen, I will watch. (Makes a change from the awful top gear stunts).

    Joking aside, 30 years ago Sir Clive Sinclair launched the C5, dying soon after launch, it did show the way. Going forward I cant see why we will be using anything else.
