My Italian Job script will go the the BMW museum

My film script of 'The Italian Job' will be going to the BMW Museum. They have offered to make a charitable donation to ROKPA whom I support through my CSR book project. Innocence lost in the Ice Cream Forest.
Thanks are in order to Joe Saward a Motorsports Journalist that put me in Contact with BMW and several BMW staff (you know who you are...) who enabled the transaction... plus a big thank you to Tracy Cadman who Authenticated the script. BMW understandably don't want a counterfeit script in their Museum!

Proton, the Car Manufacturer in turmoil... Linkedin link for those interested

I saw this video today. Proton, the Malaysian Car Manufacturer and owner of Group Lotus is going through a painful period.

Reminds me of British Leyland. Some of which survives and prospers.

(BMW owners of MINI are looking at putting my Italian job script in their MINI museum)

They are expected to get a foreign partner. Historically this has never materialised.

At least they have a financial lifeline while they implement their plan...

I have added a published post on Linkedin.

The update gives a summary of my OUT OF THE BOX idea regarding a Motorsport centric University, and suggesting Proton and Lotus consider this as part of their turnaround...

Good luck. I have worked in Proton's Shah Alam R&D centre. Tough times for all concerned.
