  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Porsche Rennsport Reunion VI

    I said it last time: I’m slowly becoming a Porsche guy. What better way to immerse oneself in the wide world of Porsche than in the self-proclaimed largest gathering of Porsches in the world: Rennsport Reunion VI. Set at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca for the 6th installment of the triennial event, it was my first stop in a month-long motorsports sampling trip across the USA. The most prominent attendee –…

  • PCNSW Concours d’Elegance 2018

    I’m slowly becoming a Porsche guy. I don’t even know why. Maybe it’s their motorsport heritage. Maybe it’s the timeless design. Maybe it’s the sound of those aircooled boxer engines. Whatever it is, I’ve been drawn more and more to the brand over the past few years. So much so that when I saw the details of the Porsche Club of NSW’s annual concours d’elegance pop up on my social…

  • Sydney SuperNight 300 2018

    It’s been a long while since there’s been a night race on the Supercars calendar – I don’t remember one in the 18 years since I’ve been following the sport. I guess it’s a last-ditch effort to appeal to a new audience and increase viewership – and patronage – for Sydney races given the move of the finale up to Newcastle and the waning crowds at Sydney Motorsport Park. It…

  • Cars and Caffeine at Meguiar’s HQ

    “Another cars and coffee event?” I say as I pack my camera bag in preparation for what seems like the fifth car meet featuring coffee this year. I mean, at the end of the day it doesn’t change the heart of the show – save a gang of Porsches or fixed-gear cyclists appearing – though I wonder if there really is any allure to the coffee at all at these…
