The new MINI John Cooper Works World Rally Car (WRC).

I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for MINIs - my first car was a Blue 1985 Austin MINI City E complete with classic cockpit, spluttering engine, and an inability to overtake without a perfectly timed run-up.

Of course my rusty bucket is a world away from the sporty BMW-designed car that has taken over and they don’t come more sporty than the new MINI John Cooper Works World Rally Car (WRC), which will feature in this year’s World Rally Championship.

Benetton s/s 2011: Now we have your attention…

Last year Dassault Systèmes held an event to showcase what its products could offer the world of fashion; since then they’ve been persuading high street brands to come aboard and now they’ve bagged Benetton as another client.

As the least sartorially-challenged member of the team (anyone who’s seen Martyn Day’s parka-with-shorts combo, or Greg Corke’s eye-wateringly bright sneaker collection will confirm this) I shuffled into the back of last year’s event with a bunch of fashion industry journalists and company execs.
