This website is for friends and family of Justin How.
It just brings a few links and other stuff together in one place. Simple really.
I may well add content to it over time.

Toyota has confirmed World Champion Anthony Davidson as the lead driver in the #1 TS040, with Alex Wurz in the #2 car. Audi has announced Marcel Fässler and Lucas di Grassi as the lead drivers in the #7 and #8 R18 e-tron quattros, with Porsche confirming Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas in the #17 and #18 919 hybrids.

Places to Visit & TTD
|Goathland Steam Railway Station||13 miles/30 mins||Steam Trains!|
|Mallyan Spout||12 Miles/30 mins||This is a very picturesque water fall which requires a bit of effort to get to|
|NYM Railway||N/A||Based in Grosmont, near Whitby, the NYMR carries more passengers than any other heritage railway in the UK and may even be the busiest steam heritage line in the world, carrying
around 350,000 passengers in 2009. The 18-mile railway is the second-longest standard gauge heritage line in the United Kingdom and runs across the North York Moors from Pickering via Levisham,
Newton Dale, Goathland and terminating at Grosmont. Some heritage rail operations continue along Network Rail tracks to Whitby during the summer months. The railway is formed from the middle section
of the former Whitby, Pickering and Malton line which was closed in 1965. The NYMR is owned by the North York Moors Historical Railway Trust Ltd and is operated by its wholly owned subsidiary North
Yorkshire Moors Railway Enterprises Plc. It is mostly operated and staffed by volunteers.
Trains run every day from the beginning of April to the end of October and on weekends and selected holidays during the winter (with no service from 24-27 December). Trains are mostly steam driven; however in some cases heritage diesel is used. At the height of the running timetable, trains depart hourly from each station. As well as the normal passenger train running, there are dining services on some evenings and weekends. The extension of steam operated services to Whitby has proved very popular to visitors and residents alike.
