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.

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. Every January, though, the city opens its doors to the country’s leading exhibition dedicated to the sport. The show is never less than remarkable in terms of its breadth and reach. From karting to F1, historics to drag racing, radio controlled cars to GT monsters – every taste is given due attention. It’s a vivid reminder of the scale of the industryRead More

2013 Silverstone Classic – Gallery

We had a great day out at the 2013 Silverstone Classic I’d never been to the Silverstone Classic before. No particular reason why, it had simply passed me by over the years but our new Motorsport Editor, Andrew Swift said I had to go. I’m glad he suggested it because despite the Sunburn and early evening downpour on the Saturday, it was superb. Watching a JPS liveried Lotus F1 car go through Becketts at full chat is something that will stay with me forever. The range of cars on displayRead More

2013 Cholmondely Pageant of Power

We visited the Cholmondely Pageant of Power for the first time this year and rather enjoyed it. I must have said to at least 20 people that I was going to the Cholmondely Pageant of Power (or CPoP for short) and nearly all of them said; ‘Where?’. Cholmondely (pronounced Chum-lee) Castle is set in rural Cheshire and the Pageant of Power has been a premier celebration of sports, performance and racing cars for several years now. Much like Goodwood, the event utilises the grounds of the estate to display and demonstrate a wholeRead More
