"Just wanted to say that Johnny Herbert was brilliant today. He stayed to past 5pm, was so friendly and suffered questions I am sure he must have heard many times!  Although we did struggle to get him out of the F1 simulators!! Thank you so much for sorting everything out for me" - Sally, Move With Us

"I just want to thank you for a great show at Swindon. I have been an F1 fan since the 70's and am amazed at how technical the fans can get and how good your memory is. I can’t remember what I did this morning! You said that humour was you way to cope with your horrendous injuries and still is. I had blood clots all over my lungs a few years ago humour helped me through it as well made it that way and I got through because of it." - Chris, The Wyvern Theatre

"Just thought I would let you know how much we enjoyed the show at Stevenage on Tuesday evening and thank you for signing my Audi picture taken at Silverstone. Jackie has refused to wash her face since you gave her a quick peck on the cheek! We are Looking forward to your next Tour already!" - Keith & Jackie, The Gordon Craig Theatre

"My wife and I were at your presentation at Rothes Halls, Glenrothes, Fife. What a fantastic evening we had and enjoyed the relaxed and informative format topped off with an interesting Q&A session. We've followed your career and genuinely believe that you had the potential to be a World Champion. Thanks for the evening - very much appreciated." - Iain & Jayne, Rothes Halls

"Thanks Johnny for doing an interview with me, and for a fantastic evening at Christchurch. It was interesting to hear all the back scene drama of the teams and the problems teams are facing this year with tyres! Formula 1 is my life and I love it, I am 15 years old and hope to work in motor sport media one day. I wanted to know how you coped after your accident and what gave you the determination to get into Formula 1 so quickly, your answer of ‘knowing you just had to get back out there and get on with it’ your drive and determination has really inspired me and helps me to push myself every day when coping with Myotonic Dystrophy." - Luke, The Regent Centre
