Bonkers Bōsōzoku

Japanese car culture has always fascinated me. One thing that always caught my eye were these slammed, widened and colourful cars with exhausts that touched the sky. I now know that this is known as Bōsōzoku style. But Bōsōzoku is quite a hard style to define, as it is not really a style, it is ...

Goodwood Revival

It’s only 8.30am and I’ve already had a spiv try to sell me nylon stockings out of his coat pocket, been handed a ration book and accidentally bumped into Winston Churchill knocking his cigar straight out of his mouth. No, this isn’t a dream, it is just typical British eccentricity gone wonderfully mad at the Goodwood ...

Silverstone Classic

As pairings go, new and old is quite a common one. In creative industries such as photography, design and architecture, new and old are often put together to make something stand out. Having subjects which contrast the background often brings interesting results. So when I was invited to go to the brand new Silverstone circuit ...

Driven: Peugeot RCZ

We’ve tried something a bit different with this review. Instead of hiding away and tapping at a keyboard during the early hours of the morning (like I am doing now), we decided to crack out the cameras and see what all this video review malarkey was all about. It’s our first attempt but we would ...

Driven: Fiat 500C TwinAir

The Fiat 500 is not new news, but stop! (collaborate and listen) there is something in this certain 500 that makes it harp back to its predecessor more than some retro glad rags – the engine. Powering this certain Italian throwback is not your standard four-cylinder engine but a new two-cylinder, just like the original ...

Nürburgring 24 Hours

The Nürburgring Nordschleife is a lot of different things. To Jackie Stewart it was the “Green Hell”, to his long lost German cousin it is the Grüne Hölle, to the Gran Turismo generation it is Mecca, a place they tilt their Xbox to in appreciation, and to manufacturers it is used as an industry benchmark. ...

Driven: Skoda Yeti

I was taught at a young age that you should never judge a book by its cover. However brand prejudice is a funny thing, especially in the world of motoring. When you are parading a big shiny badge on the front of your car day in day out, it is easy for people to make ...

Driven: Porsche 911 Turbo

People condemn Porsche’s decision not to change the overall design of the 911 as boring. But no matter what people say about the shape of the 911 its design consistency serves as a very useful timeline. The 911 Turbo, for me at least, is the easiest Porsche to track through their design history. Before the ...

Driven: Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo

There is something seriously satisfying about seeing numbers increase at a significant rate on a heads-up display, 100kmh…150kmh…200kmh…225kmh…250kmh… BRAKE! That was my experience in the awesomely powerful Alpina B5 Bi-turbo, the M5 for people who like things to be a bit different. You know the people, they are the ones walking around with the latest ...

Tested: Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Some believe that tyres are merely the black bits wrapped around a wheel. But those ‘black bits’ are incredibly important. Now, I’m probably not the first person to stress the significance of tyres and I definitely won’t be the last. But on a recent trip to the Dubai Autodrome I got to test the brand ...
