Turn left into the dark side and may the Force be with you


Choosing the voice on your satnav is beginning to get as complicated as choosing your car insurance.

With celebrity voices such as Burt Reynolds and Homer Simpson already shouting directions at us from over the satnav, it was only ever going to be a matter of time before Darth Vader was added to that list.

Lending his dulcet tones exclusively to TomTom, the dark lord is set to become the latest voice to help navigate us through the galaxy.

With directions likely to be along the lines of "Turn right into the dark side" and "May the Force be with you" after each command, I would give it about 10 seconds before it gets turned off and chucked onto the back seat.



Young racing driver set for success

A promising young driver from Barkingside, Essex has been chosen as a Rising Star by motor oil manufacturer Miller Oils.

The 21-year-old will be given oil products and expert advice as he tries move up the ranks of professional motorsport.

Having already won the 2009 UK National Formula Ford 1600 title and gaining two second –place finishes last year, Scott Malvern now sits at the top of the Dunlop MSA British Formula Ford Championship table with a 23 point lead.

Having also won himself a year's worth of sponsorship from the oil company, Scott looks set to have an even more successful season this year.
