Suck Squeeze Bang Blow (or s2b2 for short) was formed in 2010 by Dr Daryl Octane and Rich Duisberg to blog and share our automotive high jinks. We don’t review cars, we’re more interested in the adventures you can have with them than their NCAP rating. You can find our work published in the motoring press or elsewhere in the media, 12 months from launch we reached 1 million hits on this site alone.
