911 Love: an interview with Becky Evans

Go-karts, drag racing, drifts – Becky Evans has been passionate about motorsport since she was a little girl. Now she’s turned her passion into a career: the new member of the Top Gear team is a presenter on the online Stig’s Garage series.

What is love?
True happiness in this life. 

How are you?
I’m good! If not a little jet-lagged. I have just arrived in Tokyo for a filming project checking out some of Japan’s amazing car culture.

The Porsche 911 in three words?
Iconic, irreplaceable, timeless.

Which simple things can make you happy?
Reading by a window when the weather outside is stormy, a drive with no destination, puppy dog cuddles.

What would you never do in a 911?
Not enjoy the ride.

What's your favorite road?
Moll’s Gap, Killarney, County Kerry in Ireland.

What can distract you?
Ideas. While I’m working on one, another will pop up and I get side tracked.

Three things you would take to a desert island?
Friends, a boat, sun cream.

Is there a historical figure you admire?
Michèle Mouton – a trailblazer and savage driver.

What on a 911 could you do without?
My turbo doesn’t have any modern conveniences. That’s what I’ve done without.

And what couldn't you?
The sound of the 3.3-litre engine with straight-through exhausts.

What music did you wake up to this morning?
Beyoncés new album Renaissance.

Your favourite film?
Christine. That bright-red Plymouth Fury is so cool.

Your favourite book?
Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday. 
I think everybody would benefit from reading this book.

Where do you long to be?
In Ireland, watching a storm from my window with a hot green tea.

Your most treasured possession?
I would have to say the Turbo.

Your secrets?
Perspective is key in everything you will encounter in life.

The 911 moment of your life?
Picking the 930 up. It’s a moment I will never forget. 

Your best advice?
Live in the now because it’s all we have.

What would no one expect of you?
That I eventually want to leave the limelight, go back to university, and try to put some good into the world.
