Breathe easy

When BP/M&S approach a supplier wanting to stock their product, you know it must be a good one.

It's not often that you buy a packet of chewing gum then, as a result, drive off in a brand new car.

Her prize was presented to her by two drivers from the Airwaves Racing British Tour Car Championship team Mat Jackson and Tom Onslow-Cole as the competition formed part of Airwaves' ongoing sponsorship of the British Tour Car Championship.
