Refreshing to see it at the top, not one of the usual suspects, and a very good song!

Easy enough to look up the answers for this but just for fun:
At midnight tonight Barbados becomes a republic replacing the Queen with a president. That will leave the Queen with 15 realms, can you name them? :-D

The car is a Radford 62.2 Lotus inspired limited edition JPS model complete with Bremont twin dash clocks. The famous people could be Jenson Button and Colin Chapman if you ignore Ant Anstead as a second tier celebrity. Yes?

If you go for the Gold Leaf Edition you can add Graham Hill to the tally of famous people involved.

Quite right Dormouse, Well done!! I was a little reticent about the term 'celebrity' which is why I said famous men, but as co-owners of the project I was looking for Jensen and Ant. The other partners are not well known enough to count as celebrities for certain and as far as I am aware not even famous :-D For more information on the car have a look at: https://www.motoringresearch.com/car-ne ... -car-test/
