A relaxed chat with Geckota ambassador Tom Williams!
Of all motorsport competitors, rally drivers are arguably the ones with the biggest screws loose: firing their cars through forests and gravel tracks at speeds in excess of 100mph, in rain, fog and snow. And we’re delighted to host our very own example this week: Tom Williams, who is sponsored by Geckota and driving on a number of different international rallies this year. At least that was the plan – until Covid-19 came along. But at long last, his season has finally got underway. Tom tells us all about getting back behind the wheel, the enduring link between rallying and watches, and his own unique connection with 2001 World Rally Champion Richard Burns.
Sit back and enjoy!
