Was in Jersey last week, and although I've swerved it on previous visits, I thought I would take a trip to the Nigel Mansell museum.

Tenner to get in, wasn't expecting too much really, but spent a couple of hours there and was very impressed. I always had this bloke down as just another race driver, but after reading his book, and seeing all the stuff in the museum I've changed my view to really top top bloke.

He has an F1 Ferrari in there, and a Williams and a whole load of trophies and awards and honours accumulated over his career. Reading his book, he was basically **** on by Williams after winning the world championship - they withdrew their contract offer as they were sending most of their driver budget to Alain Prost - which encouraged him to cross the Atlantic and drive indycars - wining the championship in his first season, which is an incredible achievement. Rather ironically he had to have rookie stripes on his car so everyone new it was his first season there.

If you're there, it's definitely worth a visit regardless of being an F1 fan - even my missus enjoyed it.
