IT is called Bog Standard and it is a complete bathroom suite that is road taxed, insured and has an MOT. The driver sits on the toilet seat and grips the sink handlebars as the passenger reclines in the bathtub. It is the brainchild of TV presenter and inventor Edd China and is one of several weird and wonderful custom-built creations that will grace the halls of the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, in Hampshire, this summer.
SCOTLAND’S own Kevin Carmichael will lead out the cavalcade of motorbike stunt riders at this year’s Ignition Festival of Motoring. Along with Broke FMX, one of the UK's leading motorbike display teams, he will light up the live street circuit with some astonishing displays of stunts and tricks. Kevin said: “It’s great to see such a strong biking line up at Ignition Festival and I can’t wait to get to grips with the street circuit.
STUNT driver Terry Grant has completed his most death defying car leap yet. Terry, who will be in Glasgow at the Ignition Festival of Motoring next month, did a full barrel roll in the brand new E-Pace, Jaguar’s new compact SUV. It was a baptism of fire for the car - little brother to the phenomenally successful Jaguar F-Pace - earning it an official Guinness World Record for the Furthest Barrel Roll in a Production Vehicle.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
