Ex-motocrosser excels in Porsche – aged 89

He might be 89 years old, but former Yorkshire motocross champion Philip Green is still setting the pace – on four wheels  rather than two, and firmly on the road.

Green, from Monmouth in Wales, has been praised for his outstanding driving performance after completing an  IAM driving assessments in his Porsche 911.

Despite having over 50 years’ experience in both driving and riding, the spirited octogenarian undertook the IAM assessment to gain more confidence behind the wheel, in which an IAM approved assessor evaluated his driving performance. While the assessment is designed to give older drivers a trusted second opinion, Philip urged other drivers to take an IAM driving assessment to gain a sense of self-satisfaction.

Examiner Ross Williams said: “Philip’s hazard perception skills are highly commendable. He handled the vehicle very well and demonstrated the ability to make all adjustments in speed smoothly and steadily.”

Which would appear to give credence to the claim that bikers make better car drivers.
