Story Text: Three-times world touring car champion Andy Priaulx has been honoured on a set of postage stamps issued by the Channel Island of Guernsey where he was born.
Guernsey Post issues on Friday (January 18) three new stamps featuring the 33-year-old British driver in the three BMW cars he drove to his successive world titles in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
"It's a great honour," Priaulx said at the stamp launch.
"It's something very special. I think it's a way the island can celebrate my success."
Priaulx said he planned to contest the world title for at least the next five years.
