These were big questions and the truth was that I didn't have the answers, even if it was obvious that things were changing in the world of motoring. That much was clear to anyone.

Inspired by the exploits of motoring journalists, One Careful Owner follows Alex Christou's journey as he leaves his career in the oil industry to travel through the UK and Europe in his dream car. It is a high-octane adventure about supercars and not-so-supercars, about friendship, and about the simple pleasure of exploring new places. Part travelogue and part 'year in the life of', One Careful Owner follows a unique journey from daydreamer to car enthusiast.

Discover what it is like to drive the Nürburgring in Germany, to take on the Lotus Challenge in Norfolk and to get trapped in the streets of Monaco during Grand Prix weekend. Meet renowned collectors, car company owners and other petrolheads as they explain the origins of their passion for cars and tell untold stories from road and track.
