Ms. Namita Nayyar: How did you feel before and after setting a new Guinness World Record for the highest number of countries visited by car using a single tank of fuel in an Audi A6, in June 2015?
Ms. Rebecca Jackson: Before, I was excited but also nervous that we might not make 14 countries. Even if we had got 10, it would still be impressive and a world record but we had to set one that was incredibly difficult to beat! After achieving the 14 countries and setting a World Record, we were absolutely over the moon, so chuffed that the great teamwork paid off. We were also very tired because we did almost 28 hours of virtually non stop driving, Andrew Frankel and I taking it in turns every 4 hours.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You are a television presenter, racing driver, entrepreneur and motoring journalist. How you manage such a remarkable multi-dimensional lifestyle?
Ms. Rebecca Jackson: I’m not sure sometimes! Once I have a rhythm with something I think it takes up less mind space and then I open up a little bit more. I truly believe we were all born with great minds and my aim is to go through life seeing how much of its potential I can release! I love what I do and my self conscious works on things while I do something else, I need only very short breaks, sometimes just 5 or 30 minutes after a 12 hour day and then I’m ready to go again!
I do have to “wear many different hats” and switch between different modes for each part of my lifestyle. For example, I can be quite direct in the way I talk to motortrade people whereas in television there are many more kisses! I guess you could say I am a ‘polychronic’, someone who likes to do several things at once and switch between them instantly.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You are a presenter on ITV4’s car show ‘I Want That Car’, have been a Guest Presenter at the 25th season of the Fifth Gear and do live hosting for Goodwood. Would you like to share with us your most memorable experience as a presenter on these shows?
Ms. Rebecca Jackson: Definitely bouncing up and down in the Ford Escort, in a bid to maintain traction, that Tiff Needell and I drove up the muddy hills Exeter Trials event. It was just so much fun and another endurance event lasting all night and the next day until 5pm!
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You were awarded the title of the ‘Michelin Inspirational Woman’ consecutively in 2012, 2013 and 2014. How does it feel that you are able to inspire so many individuals?
Ms. Rebecca Jackson: It’s a truly wonderful feeling, that you are worthy of inspiring others. I love inspiring individuals and nurturing them, if anyone feels inspired to follow their dreams and achieve their goals after speaking to me or reading my story then that adds an extra amount of happiness to fulfilling my own dreams.
