Professional racing driver and media personality Vicki Butler-Henderson catches up with her old friend Jason Plato and his co-host Dave Vitty on the latest episode of Fuelling Around.

VBH, who has known Jason since they both worked at Silverstone as race instructors, shares humorous lockdown tales before taking a look back at the journey which has seen her become one of the industry’s most respected names.

From learning to drive her dad’s tractor to her current three-car garage, Vicki details a driving and racing career that includes an ongoing love and appreciation for the karting community.

The Car Girl: A new YouTube channel from Vicki Butler-Henderson

Vicki, a former Top Gear and current Fifth Gear presenter, also spoke about looking forward to a new adventure on YouTube.

She is launching a channel called The Car Girl and spoke to Dave and Jason about the project – which Dave cheekily said was just an excuse to get behind the wheel of some amazing vehicles.

Hopefully she’ll have less water-based experiences than the hilarious one she enjoyed with Jason and Tiff Needell, as retold on the podcast that is powered by Adrian Flux.
