David ponders whether he should continue with iPISTON or not I fell into this blogging lark by accident really. I started off writing for a friends site (which is now very successful) but I also had several goes at doing my own thing. The first try was amusingly called Dave on Cars and then there was GRIDWALK, a blog dedicated to Formula 1. I learnt a lot from both but I also gave up on both. Now I’m facing the same conflict with iPISTON. I started this site in JanuaryRead More

iPISTONS Top Ten Cars of 2013

2014 is well underway but what were our favourite cars of 2013? Ferrari 458 Speciale The 458 Speciale was a car trying to improve on what many saw as perfection. By all accounts they managed it. McLaren P1 We’ve made no secret of the fact that the P1 is an iPISTON favourite. For that reason it had to feature in our top ten. Jaguar F-Type Coupe Just look at it. It has got to be the best looking car we’ve seen since, well, the F-Type Roadster. Nissan GTR Nismo NissanRead More
Autosport have asked me to consider who is the best driver of my generation. Colin McRae gets my vote. As I sit here writing this I am still unsure about my choice of driver for this post. Several months ago the Autosport International show organisers contacted me and asked if I could be one of the official bloggers of the 2014 show. They wanted a post about who I believed was the driver of my generation. Now the post is due and I still don’t really know who I shouldRead More

David’s Blog: October

Dream drives, a new phone, a broken car and a competition judged. It’s been a busy month for David SMMT South This month started well. A very early drive from Norwich to near Reading was required to reach SMMT South on time but it was worth getting up early for. SMMT South is run by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and is essentially a day where journalists and bloggers can pitch up and get a taste a wide range of different cars. As this website is aimed atRead More
The Guild of Motoring Writers treated us to a day of fun at Rockingham Raceway We spend so much time talking about new cars that we rarely get to talk about or enjoy our own cars. It seems that the Guild of Motoring Writers had that in mind when they planned their big day out at Rockingham Raceway. A gaggle of bloggers, journalists and photographers from the automotive world descended on Rockingham. Each of us brought along our own cars so that we could spend some time on track andRead More

David’s Blog – July 2013

July has been a quiet month but David still managed to fit in a visit to the Silverstone Classic and the Heritage Museum at Gaydon July has been a hard month for this website. Continuing commitments in the job that allows me to have a roof over my head have meant that very little time has been devoted to the website. The last thing I have wanted to do after 15 hours at work is sit in front a computer. This is a shame as I love working on iPISTONRead More

David’s Blog – June 2013

A drive in a Bentley and the realisation that he must realise his dream are hot topics this month for David. I love a good blag. My flat-mate thinks I have all the luck in the world but thats largely not true. That being said I have been very fortunate to attended some amazing events and do some pretty cool stuff. That’s half the reason we do this job anyway, right? Last month was no exception as I was attending the Cholmondely Pageant of power for the first time. IRead More

iPISTON’s best of Geneva 2013

Geneva Fever is over. Here are our 10 favourite showstoppers. McLaren P1 Mclaren Had every right to hold its head high at Geneva despite an all out Hypercar Assault from the next two cars in our list. The Production P1 is stunning to look at and the technology has us salivating at the possibilities. LaFerrari The oddly named hypercar from Maranello has been for many the star of the show. Its hybrid V12 setup makes it the fastest car that Ferrari have ever produced. We cannot wait for the inevitable head toRead More

The Skoda Museum

A visit to the Skoda Museum in Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic is more interesting than you might imagine. As you may have noticed from a post yesterday, earlier this month I visited Prague in the Czech Republic. Skoda invited us to tour their factory and have a look round their newly finished museum. The factory is based in Mladá Boleslav which is about an hour and a half by train away from Prague. The factory dominates the city and sits on a site bigger than Monaco. It employs around half the population there andRead More
