Crikey! Only fourteen minutes after the competition opened, Simon submitted an entry. Sorry mate, you were nearly 1,400 days out, but thanks for having a stab at it.
You weren’t the only one way out with your guess, the answers ranged from 30 days (if only it only took that long) to 1,500.
Thank you for all the entries that were recorded in the competition’s 23 days of life, and for all of your support.
I’m suspicious that some went as far as to buy the book to obtain the correct answer, a rather extreme way of obtaining two copies of my memoir if you ask me. But, I suppose it gave you the possibility of getting an Amazon voucher, and half a chance to get back your investment.
So the number on everyone’s lips: 1,753 days to complete The Knowledge and gain my Green Badge to become an All-London cabbie. Some qualify in under 3 years, while others have taken up to 10 years. Given that, I took a little over average.
So the winner is Stevie who was only 253 days out, a signed book and Amazon voucher are in the post.
