Driving 4 Answers has a fascinating story to tell, and his passion for all things combustion engineering is very obvious. Despite his extremely in-depth knowledge and understanding, Driving 4 Answers has zero education in the subject and actually ditched a high-pressure career in the upper echelons of European politics to do what he loves — learning, talking, and educating people about automotive engineering, especially when it comes to building motors.
