Nick MasonAll of us at Brain Damage offer our heartiest best wishes to Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, who celebrates his 64th birthday today.

Nick, who this week accepted an invitation to stand as the new president of the Guild of Motoring Writers, following the death of the former president Lord Strathcarron in August 2006, has been involved in motor racing since the early 1970s and has entered Le Mans five times.

He has contributed to a number of magazines on motoring issues over the years (including a fascinating monthly column in Octane Magazine), and is a trustee of the Beaulieu National Motor Museum, and a life member and Guardian of the BRDC (British Racing Drivers Club).

Congratulations Nick - and many happy returns!
