Beetle-mania leads to TV appearance
7:30pm Friday 2nd November 2007 in News
A Herefordshire man who set up his own car company is to feature in a TV documentary.
Conor La Grue and wife Nicola, from Bridstow near Ross-on-Wye, will appear on the Discovery Real Time series Beetle Crisis, which focuses on VW Beetles and campervans.
Conor started his Tewkesbury-based company Race Shack in 2003, specialising in bringing modern performance ideas to classic VWs.
The documentary will follow the couple as they restore some of the best VWs in Europe.
"It's been an amazing few years," said Conor.
"Filming the TV series will let others see for themselves what we've been up to."
He added: "We've enjoyed making the show immensely."
Nicola, a freelance writing consultant, is also keen on motoring and drives her own Legends' car, often racing against more than 30 men on race tracks around the country.
The Beetle Crisis series begins on Discovery Real Time from Tuesday at 9pm.
