THE 571G

Top Gear fan Rick Fusari won the race to buy THE 571G during the climax of DVLA Personalised Registrations’ three-day auction at the Haycock Hotel in Wansford, Cambridgeshire. Over a dozen people were bidding for the THE 571G registration due to its obvious link to the mystery race-ace and hugely popular figure from the Top Gear TV show. The winning bid reached £10,690 for the unique plate (more than 26 times its £400 reserve!).
