"The Stig" swapped his usual racing car for a gentler form of transport, a mobility scooter belonging to Wimborne Town Crier, when he stopped off at the Formula One Day at Wimborne Square.

The event was organised by Wimborne BID (Business Improvement District). Sports car enthusiasts got the chance to sit behind the wheel of prestige cars during the special day and have a go on a simulated race track.

The cars were supplied by Dorset Sports Cars and Jaguar specialists from Three Legged Cross. The day was made possible thanks to F1 Motorsports, Dorset.
