"For the One Formula exhibition, we gathered almost every race and road car from my 50-year career to date and we were inundated with requests from fans across the world who
wanted to visit. Being a short-term, private exhibition meant we couldn't share our passion with these enthusiasts. So, doing so in virtual form is the next best thing!" he further added.
