I'm Rob. I'm 19 and I'm from Basingstoke (yes, it is still rather boring). I work in the IT industry in tech support. In my spare time, I am a keen if laughably poor sim racer, mainly on Gran Turismo 6 at the moment until I get my PC working again. I also enjoy watching motorsport. I've been watching F1 since the Hungarian GP 2004 and I have missed 9 out of 231 races in that time. I mainly follow sportscar racing these days although I still follow F1, BTCC and Formula E very closely indeed. In fact, I have booked flights to the Monaco FE round and I will probably be going to Paris for the following round the weekend after as well as planned trips to Silverstone, Paul Ricard and Zandvoort lined up this year as well as the now traditional visit to Thruxton. I mostly listen to metal and hard rock and I support Tottenham.

I only just discovered this thread, though I've been lurking here for a few months now.
My name is Jaakko Mäntyjärvi (or Mantyjarvi, in case the system does not like umlauts). I am 54 and live (as my screen name indicates) in Helsinki, Finland. I am a freelance translator and, in my parallel career, an internationally moderately successful composer of choral music.
I have been fascinated with the Tube since living in London at age 4 but have only recently developed the idea of actually doing a FNC. My son has inherited my fascination -- he is a mechanical engineer who recently got a job in commuter timetable planning with the Finnish State Railways. Our first FNC attempt will take place on Tue 3 Apr this year.
