En Route to Goodwood

September is probably my favourite month of the year. Temperatures are just right – sunny but not too hot with a soft light, crisp autumn chill and crunching leaves underfoot. Feeling recharged from the summer, it’s the perfect time to slow down and unwind… … but to be frank, the main reason is because of…

Shelsley Walsh Hill climb – A time capsule of motor racing

Long-running motorsport events tend to evolve and change over the years for a multitude of reasons ranging from boosting competitiveness, improving safety to just keeping up with the times.

Mini but mighty: The Monte Carlo Winning Mini

Whether you associate it with The Italian Job, Mr Bean or the Swingin’ 60s – the Mini is undoubtedly a British icon.

Porsche Spring Meeting

Club event is something I have never been to, neither considered to go to be honest. I have always been attracted to events that bring a lot of people from different background and cars, Le Mans Classic and Goodwood Revival are the one I am talking about.
