  • 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.

  • 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.

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…

  • 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 –…
