This year we helped Peugeot with a great project – The crowdsourced #T16CrowdFilm Myself and several other bloggers as well as the general public helped Peugeot document Loeb’s fantastic run up the Goodwood Hill in his 2013 Pike’s Peak racer. The result was very cool as you can see from the above video. Enjoy. Remember we are on Facebook & Twitter so don’t forget to like and follow us.

Just under £300k could get you one of the most beautiful cars I’ve ever seen.

Here is what the eBay ad says: 1953 Bentley R Type Fastback CoupéRead More

We got up close to a very rare Lotus Motorsport Elise Recently we visited our local Lotus dealer to photograph a very rare Lotus, the Motorsport Elise. These cars were manufactured exclusively for the Lotus Autobytel championship in 2000. The Autobytel Championship was run alongside the British Touring Car series. The specially-built Motorsport Elise featured a tuned Rover K-Series engine, aerodynamic bodywork and central driving position. The cars were prepared by Lotus Sport at a cost to the driver of around £60,000 a season. K-series engines were tuned by Minister and developed around 200bhpRead More

Toxic Green Lotus Exige S V6 Cup

TUNED: Litchfield Nissan GTR

UK-Based Litchfield have decided the GTR is just too tame When we usually think of a Nissan GTR we know they are fast, personally I didn’t think the GTR needed an upgrade.   Already managing to reach 60mph from a standstill in just 3 seconds!  But if you thought the Nissan needed a little more poke then you will be thrilled to know that Litchfield Tuners have been modifying the GTR to get even more power out of the 3.8 litre V6 engine. Litchfield are one of the most recognisable namesRead More

Now the Wetherspoons issue has sparked controversy due to the fact that alcohol will be served at a place that will be mainly frequented by motorists but that doesn’t really bother me. I’d like to think that in today’s society most drivers would be sensible enough to not drink and then getRead More

Autosport International Show 2014

Autosport International 2014 previews a great season of racing Birmingham’s history of active motor sport may be limited to the short-lived Superprix around the streets during the 1980s.
