  • Dem Trinker kommt der Durst

    I like to believe I’m on the minimalist side of life moreso than the opposite. Social media has been a great tool for the last decade or so, but I’m hearing of more people who have ditched them all and haven’t looked back. While I’ve thought about doing the same, there is one thing preventing me from going cold turkey: social media continues to allow me to discover good information…

  • Let’s #SportscarTogether

    If you have even only one eye on the international Porsche scene, it shouldn’t be news to you that a few short weeks ago Luftgekühlt 6 was held at the Universal Studios backlot in California. A wealth of air-cooled Porsches have bombarded my social media feed over the past few weeks since and, as I didn’t have the luxury of attending, I’ve been at a loss. Not all was lost…

  • TCR: A New Horizon

    I don’t think I can remember the last time a new motor racing category has stirred up so much commotion in the industry or the public eye before the cars had even hit the track for a race. But for many, myself included, there was a new glimmer in the eye as the new TCR Australia Series got under way for Round 1 at the Shannons Nationals at Sydney Motorsport…

  • On Any Given Sunday

    It’s been a long time since I last headed out to a Cars And Coffee event in Sydney. Almost two years, in fact, so it was only natural for me to be a little excited to see some cars that would normally be hidden away in garages for most of the year. I mentioned to a friend in the days leading up to Cars And Coffee at The Newport that…

  • Scotty Strikes Back

    I missed watching most of the 2018 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship season, but I did manage to continue my new yearly ritual of heading out to the final round at Newcastle, a couple of hour’s drive north of Sydney. There seemed to be a lot less hype surrounding the event this year than last (or maybe it was because I was so out of the loop), but there were still…

  • Racing’s Bigger in Texas

    Formula 1 never used to be my thing; I’d watched a handful of Grand Prix trying to force myself to like it, but could never properly get in to the racing element of the sport – which probably is the biggest part of it. I’d see the headlines flashing on the TV screens every year when the first round of each season would go to Melbourne, but the excitement for…

  • Boogity Boogity Boogity

    People who know me, know I love motorsport. They know I have an annual ritual of going to every Virgin Australia Supercars Championship round I can. They even ask what racing I’m watching next weekend. And the next, and the next, because there’s always motorsport worth watching on any given Sunday. So when I began to tell people I was flying over to the USA to watch motorsport it didn’t…

  • Welcome to Atlanta

    Well, not technically Atlanta, but a town called Braselton about an hour’s drive north of my accommodation in North Decatur for the week surrounding Petit Le Mans 2018. If you’re into the American sports car racing or international endurance racing scene, you’d be hard-pressed not to know Road Atlanta. It’s not a large track by any means, but it looked like an exciting lap from what I saw. The first…

  • The Coolest Car Museum I’ve Been To

    When I left Laguna Seca Raceway following Rennsport Reunion VI, I thought that the eye and ear-gasm I was subjected to over the weekend would ease. Oh, how wrong I was. My next stop was Los Angeles, and within the first few days I made the effort to head to the Petersen Automotive Museum and see what was on offer in arguably the most car-centric city in the world. Little…

  • My First Period Correct Pitstop

    This is what I like to see. All makes, all models and no petty rivalries. Period Correct Pitstop heralds this sentiment with a monthly gathering to give the opportunity for classic car guys and girls to appreciate this genre of the culture at the atelier in Costa Mesa on the fringes of Los Angeles. After seeing photos of each event in envy on my social media feeds I had to…
