I’m thinking as fast as I can, but it’s just not fast enough. Out here, 1,800m up in the arid Nevada desert on a dead-straight road, everything’s happening very quickly and I’m struggling to understand what’s going on. I’ve just slotted the Hennessey Venom GT into fifth gear at around 290km/h, pushed the throttle to the floor and the small, Alcantara-clad steering wheel is now wildly thrashing from side to side in my sweating fists.
I keep my foot down, hoping the car will straighten itself out, but a split-second later the monstrous 6.2-litre twin-turboed motor unleashes another huge, whistling wrecking ball of power.

As the speedo needle flashes past 320km/h, I realise something truly unbelievable is happening: the little yellow car, still accelerating faster than a bullet, is producing so much torque that both rear wheels have broken traction and started to spin. What the…?
Easing back on the throttle, the turbo wastegates burst open and the Venom GT instantly regains its composure, like a bulldog that has just bitten your arm off then fallen asleep. Unlike me. I can’t quite believe what just happened. I’ve driven pretty much every supercar on sale over the past 25 years, but not one of them has accelerated anything like the Venom. Not the Bugatti Veyron. Not even the Shelby Supercars Ultimate Aero, which I stepped out of just a few minutes before

Dima Bilan – Musician

Dima Bilan (real name: Viktor Belan), born December 24, 1981, in Karachay-Cherkessia, is a Karachay-Russian pop singer. Dima represented Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 with Never Let You Go, finishing 2nd.

When Bilan was one, his family moved to his grandmother’s place in the city of Naberezhnye Chelny in Tatarstan. When he was six years old, his family moved to Kabardino-Balkaria where he went to school with his sister. He took part in morning performances, recited poems and sang songs.

Bilan graduated from Gnesins Musical College as a classical vocal performer. Dima made his debut when he reached 4th place at the Russian/Latvian festival “New Wave” in 2002. In 2003, Dima Bilan released his debut album titled “Nochnoy Huligan,” (“Night Hooligan”) which included covers of “Caruso” by Lucio Dalla and “Fever” by Elvis. In 2004, he released his successful single “Na beregu neba,” which was also the title of his second album.

Produced by the late Yury Aizenshpis, a Russian music mogul famous for his work with Viktor Tsoi in the Soviet Union, Dima Bilan attempted to reach Eurovision previously with the song Not That Simple in 2005, finishing in 2nd place at the Russian national selection. The video for the Russian version of the song was reputably the most expensive in the history of Russia’s music industry. In December 2005, Dima received two golden gramophones for the song “Ty dolzjna ryadom byt'” (this is a russian version of “Not That Simple”) in Saint Petersburg and Alma Ata. During shootings of “Noviye pyesny o glavnom”(New songs about what is most important) he received the grand prize of the First channel from the professional jury. Dima became Man of the Year in the sphere of show- business because the most voters gave their voices for him according to the version of Rambler.

At the end of a year he accepted an invitation for the composition “Ya pomnyu tebya” (I remember you) was shot in the Botanical garden. The clip had a fantastical and magical element which corresponded with the atmosphere of New Year’s Eve. In March 2006 Dima Bilan took part in “Zolotaya sharmanka”(Golden street organ) of “International Music Awards” in Kiev where he was honored as “Singer of the Year” for the song “Never let you go”.

Musician/Model&Actor-Adam Rickitt

Adam’s career was launched in 1997 when he was catapulted to fame as the young and gorgeous Nick Tilsley in Granada Television’s top soap Coronation Street.

However, it could all have been so different as Adam was set to go to Oxbridge to study law. Failing that he was planning to follow his father into banking but just before he left school he was signed up by Take That’s former manager Nigel Martin-Smith. Nigel immediately spotted his potential and snapped up the young Manchester actor.

Adam’s first love has always been drama and he immediately managed to land his first television acting job in the UK’s most watched show – Coronation Street. For two years Adam’s character Nicky coped with an over protective screen mum – Gail, studied hard at college, and did nude life modelling, not to mention teenage marriage and pregnancy!

Despite the great storylines Adam was sad to leave Britain’s most famous street – “I’ve had a brilliant time in Corrie. I owe it so much but I felt it was time to move on.” Adam took a change of direction and made his pop debut. His first single, “I Breathe Again” went straight to the Top 10 at no 5, and he undertook an exhaustive tour of the UK and Europe promoting his debut “Gold selling” album “Good Times”.

Adam then resumed his acting career starring as Mark Cohen in the UK National touring of highly acclaimed musical “Rent” moving to the West End of London in December 2001 for a record breaking run.

Adam also has a number of film and TV projects in development, the first of which was Emergency Exit

Following a spell in Los Angeles discussing these future movie projects, Adam returned to the London stage to star in a Bill Kenwright production Office Games.

Adam was asked by Granada to return to the role of Nick in Coronation Street on several occasions. And having secured some very interesting and explosive storylines for the character, Adam can now be seen back on your screens, four nights a week in the major UK ratings and award winning serial until July 2004.

Time has now come for Adam to move on from Coronation Street and he is planning initially a return to the stage with a new play Final Judgement with a number of film and other projects in the pipeline.
